Some people who have undergone bariatric surgery to reduce the size of the stomach pouch start to regain excess weight over time. The regained weight is the result of the reduced stomach pouch stretching, allowing more food to be consumed. The Apollo bariatric treatment is a revision surgery to restore your stomach to the smaller size it had after your primary bariatric surgery.
It is very distressing to have undergone a bariatric procedure, lost a dramatic amount of weight, and to see it returning over time.
