Revisional bariatric surgery is increasingly becoming popular as the number of primary procedures for the treatment of obesity gains popularity. It is estimated that about 10% of patients who underwent a bariatric procedure will need revisional surgery. The most common indications for revisional bariatric surgery are inadequate weight loss (<25% of excess body weight loss) and weight regain (gain of more than 10 kg based on the nadir weight); however, procedure-specific complications are also indication of the need for revisional surgery.
