What is Gastric Sleeve Revision?

Gastric Sleeve Revision is an outpatient, non-surgical procedure that tightens a stretched gastrectomy (opening) to its original size or smaller. This procedure is only performed on patients who had a Sleeve Gastrectomy or Endoscopy Sleeve Gastroplasty, who have since re-gained weight and can consume larger meal portions.

What to Expect

You will be given specific instructions to prepare for your Gastric Sleeve Revision. Your physician may request that you don’t eat or drink after midnight on the day of your procedure.

During your procedure, an endoscopic suturing system is passed through the mouth into the stomach. Your physician will tighten your sleeve from the inside without any incisions.

A Gastric Sleeve Revision requires anesthesia. Under these circumstances, patients are required to have a licensed driver take them back home.

Your physician will provide you with diet modifications to follow for the weeks following your procedure.

Benefits & Risks

This non-invasive technique is performed to help patients feel full faster without losing the integrity of the stomach's natural microbes that help to maintain brain health. The reduction in stomach capacity supports long-term weight loss without interfering with nutrient absorption.

Side effects include abdominal discomfort or pain, nausea, chest pressure, and stomach spasm.
