In fact, OCC has become a leader in providing affordable options that create life-long solutions. Our world-leading track record and innovations mean patients come from all over America and the world to have their gastric procedures revised. Plus with our 5-year program, you’re part of the #OCCFamily for life.

Why Do Procedures Fail?

For a number of reasons, a weight loss procedure can fail to allow the patient to reach his or her goals. Whether it is gastric banding (Lap-Band/REALIZE bands), sleeve gastrectomy/gastric sleeves, vertical gastroplasty (stomach stapling), plicatura gástrica, or gastric bypass surgery, a failed procedure is both disappointing and a major health issue.

There are multiple factors associated with failure. It can be the technique itself, either because it is outdated, or other more effective safer procedures have been developed. It can be technical in nature, meaning that the surgery may have not been optimally executed. It can also be the simple result of stretching, which would enlarge the gastric pouch, causing loss of restriction. In our opinion, it is a combination of several factors most of the time, which results in a failed surgery. To learn more about revision bariatric surgery, visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

Gastric Revision

What is Bariatric Revision Surgery?

Bariatric revision surgery is not just a technique. It is a scientific, evidence-based medical approach to correcting a failed weight loss procedure. The OCC Revision Surgery Program starts with an in-depth look at the patient’s history and any available medical records to understand the nature of the failure, as well as the best approach to resolve it. Once the patient is physically present, OCC has a wide selection of studies available to further evaluate the status of the surgery to be revised. This is only part of the OCC Revision Surgery Program, as our nutrition and physician team assess and affirm the patient’s understanding of the procedure and reignites the faith and hope associated with a new procedure. The goal is a safe, effective, and durable procedure. To learn more about bariatric revision surgery, visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

Bariatric Revision Surgery FAQS

PRE-CIRUGÍA

Who is an ideal candidate for gastric revision?

UNA failed weight-loss procedure can be defined as one that has resulted in:

  • Less than 50% loss of the expected weight loss
  • Weight loss followed by partial or total regain
  • An intolerance to normal/solid foods
  • Signs that the overall quality of life is diminishing
  • Additional health issues caused by the procedure

¿Cómo me preparo para la cirugía gástrica?

Like in life, preparation is essential for a successful outcome, mentally, physically, and nutritionally. Additional requirements may be suggested depending on your specific case.

La pérdida de peso preoperatoria desintoxicará su hígado, lo hará más liviano y dará como resultado un procedimiento de pérdida de peso más rápido y seguro con menos impacto en su estado general. Incluso el 5% de la pérdida total de peso corporal resultará en una mejora dramática en su capacidad para responder al estrés quirúrgico.

Nourishment at a cellular level will require you to compensate for the deficiencies you have accumulated over the years and the deficiencies expected after weight loss surgery. Research has proven that the only way to replenish these deficiencies is through Bariatric Supplementation. This means that a Bariatric Multivitamin and a Bariatric Protein source prior to the Gastric Bypass will enormously increase your safety profile and a successful outcome. Mental preparation includes looking at the way we relate to food and being proactive about a healthier diet and lifestyle.

What’s the price for a gastric revision?

Dependiendo del tipo de cirugía gástrica solicitada, los precios pueden variar entre los $ 6.500 y los $ 9.000 dólares. Le sugerimos que consulte los testimonios en línea, hable con otros pacientes y no se deje engañar por el precio. Los ahorros al venir a OCC son alrededor del 50% del costo en los EE. UU. No se arriesgue buscando el precio más bajo. Tu salud y bienestar son muy valiosos.

Included in the cost of your gastric surgery:

  • Estancia de 1 noche en nuestro hospital de renombre mundial
  • Estancia de 1 noche en un hotel local de 5 estrellas.
  • Transporte de lujo desde y hacia el aeropuerto internacional de San Diego.
  • Team of three Board Certified surgeons, including two anesthesiologist
  • Todos los costos de quirófano y material quirúrgico
  • Todas las evaluaciones preoperatorias y la atención de seguimiento

Why is Gastric Surgery called ‘Metabolic surgery’?

In the fight against obesity and excess weight, the only proven method that outlasts common methods is bariatric surgery. Recent advances in the field have proven that these weight loss surgeries not only dramatically influence the excess weight a patient carries, it also balances out the metabolism of an individual, especially the insulin and blood sugar levels. This is why weight loss surgery is now called ‘Metabolic surgery’. It is not completely understood how exactly surgery regulates insulin, blood sugar, diabetes, cholesterol, lipids, and sleep disorder (sleep apnea), but it is a fact that it has a direct impact and controls, and many times cures these life-threatening diseases.

LA SEGURIDAD

Cirugía gástrica en México, ¿de verdad?

En OCC, tenemos más de 22,000 pacientes que han viajado a nuestro centro sin incidentes de seguridad importantes que informar. Estamos en el corazón del distrito comercial, a menos de media milla de la frontera internacional con los EE. UU. Tijuana es ahora el segundo destino médico más concurrido para el paciente que viaja. En OCC, nos complace ser una parte esencial de esta gran reputación.

How safe is gastric surgery?

La tasa de complicaciones de la OCC es una de las más bajas de la literatura publicada.

Is gastric surgery painful?

Our process at OCC includes a gentle but short procedure that results in a quick recovery. The OCC difference includes specialized instruments and bladeless abdominal wall trocars. Localized abdominal wall blocking agents diminish the cascade of mediators that cause pain and inflammation. We use half the amount of gas pressure, where others use 20mm/hg, we use 10 to 12mm/hg. This results in less of the dreaded “gas pressure pains” associated with laparoscopic surgery. Our operating time is a fraction of the typical time reported in the literature. We’re in no hurry, we have simply streamlined the process. Less time under anesthesia means quicker recovery times.

What is the mortality rate for gastric surgery?

Podemos decir con mucho orgullo que nuestra tasa de mortalidad es del cero por ciento. Valoramos la salud y el bienestar y nunca realizaremos un procedimiento en alguien que no esté bien preparado médicamente o que tenga un riesgo mayor de lo aceptable.

¿Qué pasa con las complicaciones del bypass gástrico?

Like any surgical procedure, complications can happen like leaks, bleeding, hernias, and chronic heartburn. So preparation is key to a successful outcome and we will be holding your hand all the way. Our complication rate is one of the lowest published in the literature. In fact, our leak rate is 0%, and with the implementation of the new techniques designed at OCC, our patients are experiencing substantial and permanent weight loss without the undesirable symptom of heartburn.

Heartburn and reflux seem to be the predominant complaint after sleeve gastrectomy. At OCC, we have adjusted the technique to let the body heal properly and avoid this uncomfortable and sometimes frequent symptom months after the surgery is performed.

Existen síntomas tras someterse a cualquier tipo de cirugía que están relacionados con la anestesia (somnolencia, mareos, náuseas, etc.) y otros directamente asociados a la propia manga gástrica (calambres, sensibilidad abdominal, vómitos). Afortunadamente, estos se mantienen al mínimo y se tratan médicamente temprano para que la mayoría de los pacientes puedan ponerse de pie en un par de horas y ser dados de alta a la mañana siguiente. ¡Muchos salen de compras al día siguiente de la cirugía!

Can a revision be done in a single surgery?

Revision surgery depends on the original procedure and what the problem is. These patients undergo an initial evaluation through our program and are ultimately scheduled for revision surgery already knowing the possibilities of completing the surgery in a single step. Over 99% of these patients are done in a single step, in other words, one surgical event.

POST CIRUGÍA

¿Puede tener una vida normal después de la cirugía?

Most patients require several months to adapt to the procedure. This is usually predictable so our nutritionist will always prescribe a nutritional regimen that is easy to follow and will allow the patient to gradually move up to the following stage. You will start with a totally liquid diet for a few days, then move on to liquids including the Bariatric Protein Meals. You can slowly start eating mushy foods and then, finally, a normal diet.

Las actividades diarias y el ejercicio también deberían progresar al mismo ritmo, pero el hecho sorprendente es que la mayoría de los pacientes se recuperan mucho más rápido de lo que pensaban; de hecho, los niveles de energía suelen ser más altos de lo esperado cuando el plan de nutrición incluye los batidos multivitamínicos bariátricos y de proteínas bariátricas recomendados por nuestro equipo de expertos.

Lo único que no puede hacer después de la cirugía es comer en exceso sin sentir molestias graves, náuseas e incluso vómitos. Idealmente, la mayoría de los pacientes volverán a tomar tres comidas normales al día y tres refrigerios entre comidas.

¿Cuánto peso debo esperar perder?

Gastric bypass is producing a substantial amount of weight loss in a relatively short period of time. A 65% EWL (excess weight loss) at 18 months is reported in general in the literature. For example, a patient that needs to lose 100 pounds (100 lbs. excess weight) will lose at least 65 pounds. Other factors that influence the total weight loss include how well prepared the patient is before surgery. Preparation not only includes mental and physical preparation, but it also includes nutritional preparation, and it seems to be one of the most important determining factors for success. Pre-operative preparations include supplementation and protein intake. This is why you will see that all patients at OCC undergo pre-surgery preparation and are followed for 5 years after the procedure. OCC Wellness is an online program that helps you achieve your goals.

¿Qué comes después de la cirugía gástrica?

It starts with liquids during the first few days gradually progressing to mushy food. Then semi-solid foods are eaten, moving on to full solids. All this happens during the first couple of months. The good news is massive weight loss occurs during this time and all the health indicators dramatically get better during this period.

How about failures and weight regain?

On average, most patients can tolerate around 30% of their pre-surgical intake after the stomach or pouch adjusts. This restriction is enough to maintain the weight loss through the years. Patients that expand their stomach to a point where they can eat more than 50% of their pre-surgical intake can be candidates for a quick stomach revision, which entails performing a running stitch to adjust the size of the plicated stomach over a calibration tube. In fact, this technique is so effective that patients who have a gastric sleeve with the same type of stomach stretching are candidates for the same technique. Simply sewing the staple line over a calibration tube can adjust the size of the sleeve. These procedures tend to be quick and effective with little downtime where patients regain the original restriction they had after the surgical procedure.

How much can your stomach hold after gastric surgery?

Los pacientes notarán una vez que hayan pasado la fase líquida y hayan comido sólidos completos que el nivel de restricción resultará en alrededor de un tercio del volumen de comida original. Comer un tercio de su comida típica definitivamente inducirá la pérdida de peso y una mejor salud en general.

How long does it take for your stomach to heal after gastric surgery?

Recent studies show that the inner lining of the stomach can start healing in as little as 6 hours! It is important to follow all the guidelines that we teach our patients prior to surgery which results in an uneventful recovery and a good outcome.
