Your New Health Starts Here

At Brisbane General & Obesity Surgery, we understand that every weight loss journey is unique and sometimes previous procedures like lap band surgery may require revisions. Our expert team, led by Dr. Jason Wong specialise in lap band revision surgery in Brisbane, ensuring tailored solutions for continued weight loss success and overall health improvement.

What is Lap Band Revision Surgery?

Lap band revision surgery is a procedure designed for patients who have previously undergone lap band surgery but have experienced complications, inadequate weight loss, or have had their lifestyle and health needs change over time. This surgery involves either adjusting, replacing, or removing the lap band to better suit the patient’s current situation. Contact our team today. 

Why Might You Need Lap Band Revision Surgery?

Reasons for considering a lap band revision procedure include weight gain, insufficient weight loss, band slippage, inability to swallow food properly, or damage to the oesophagus from the band. In some cases, the oesophagus can start to fail, can no longer contract properly and becomes dilated and floppy – a condition known as “pseudoachalasia”.

The Process of Lap Band Revision Surgery

  • Pre-surgical assessment: Our team conducts a thorough evaluation to determine the best approach for your revision surgery. This includes reviewing your weight loss history, current health status, and the performance of the original lap band.
  • Surgical technique: Wong utilises minimally invasive techniques to adjust, replace, or remove the lap band. His expertise in keyhole surgery ensures less discomfort and a quicker recovery.
  • Post-operative care: Recovery and post-operative care are crucial. Our team provides comprehensive support, including dietary advice and lifestyle modifications to enhance the success of the revision.
