Lap Band to Gastric Sleeve in Cancun
A lap band, though an effective tool in weight loss, may sometimes lead to suboptimal results. In some cases making lap band adjustments and altering diet and exercise plans may result in optimal weight loss. However, sometimes these measures might not suffice. In such cases, a revision weight loss surgery from banding to gastric sleeve can be a worthwhile option.
And if high costs of bariatric surgery in your home country concern you, consider taking a medical trip abroad for having lap band revision surgery in Cancun, a pulsating Mexican resort city.
Who Makes a Candidate for Lap Band to Gastric Sleeve?
- One of the main reasons for lap band revision surgery is insufficient weight loss.
- Candidates who regain weight owing to stretched stomach pouch also qualify for surgery.
- Lap band will also have to be removed if one suffers from band slippage, erosions and infection caused by the port or the band.
- Please note that revision surgery may not be recommended if unsatisfactory weight loss is a result of the patient’s non-committed attitude to serious lifestyle changes.
- The revision procedure is alternatively known as:
- Lap band revision to vertical sleeve
- Lap band revision to sleeve bariatric surgery
- Gastric band revision to gastric sleeve
