We know regaining weight after bariatric surgery or medical therapy is scary! You are not alone!
Weight gain after gastric bypass surgery occurs in about half of all patients within two years. Despite the weight regain, the average patient still keeps off over 60 percent of their excess weight after five years.
About 50 percent of patients eventually gain a little weight back after hitting their low point (also called their “nadir”). The more time that passes following surgery, the more likely patients are to gain back some weight.
On average, patients who gain the weight back see about eight percent of their old weight return within five years of surgery. So, if a patient is one of the 50 percent who gains weight back, was 100 pounds overweight, and lost 70 pounds from surgery, on average, he or she can expect to gain back about eight pounds.
What can you do about weight regain?
Even if you stay on top of the points discussed on our page about regaining weight, there’s still a chance that you could experience weight gain after gastric sleeve or gastric bypass surgery. We offer several safe incisionless solutions that will get you back on track and losing weight.
Gastric sleeve revision (GSRe)
What is gastric sleeve revision (GSRe)?
Gastric sleeve revision is a procedure that shrinks the stomach to the size it was after a primary gastric sleeve gastrectomy. The procedure follows the same protocol as an endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG). Refer to the ESG page on this site to learn more about its specifics. It does not require incisions, is performed in our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center in Atlanta, and you can return home the same day, with a short recovery period.

Gastric bypass revision (transoral outlet revision-TORe)
What is gastric bypass revision (transoral outlet revision-TORe)?
Also known as transoral gastric outlet reduction, this procedure can repair the gastric outlet (the connection between the stomach and small bowel) by reducing its size. To accomplish this revision, we insert stitches into the gastric outlet with an endoscope. This procedure will allow you to feel full earlier when eating, lose weight, and hopefully maintain the weight loss throughout the years. It does not require incisions and is performed in our private, luxury outpatient surgery center. You will return home the same day and can return to your usual activities within a couple of days.
How much does the procedure cost?
