Revisional Weight Loss Surgery
If you haven’t experienced the results you’d hoped for after your initial bariatric surgery, there is still hope! Revisional bariatric surgery is a highly specialised area of weight loss surgery. Dr Ma has extensive training and experience in revisional surgery.
Weight loss surgery is unsuccessful in a small proportion of patients, for varied and complex reasons.
Perhaps you’ve had medical complications such as unacceptable reflux. Or your weight loss might have been inadequate to improve your health and wellbeing. Dr Ma will judge whether further surgery might be able to correct your issues.
Choosing revisional surgery is major decision, so you will have a thorough consultation with Dr Ma before she recommends the right approach. Even if Dr Ma didn’t perform your initial surgery, she can still assess you for a revisional plan.
Revisional weight loss surgery and your follow-up treatment program will be specifically designed to take into account what went wrong, and to help you achieve your goals.
Body Mass Index (BMI): A Quick Calculator
If your BMI is 30 – 39.9, you are considered to be obese; 40 – 49.9 is morbidly obese, and 50+ is super obese. BMI can be useful in helping you understand whether you are in a healthy weight range. But it’s only part of the equation. Your initial consultation with Dr Ma includes a thorough medical examination, full medical history and questions about your current lifestyle and weight management history.
