What Should I Expect During & After the Procedure?
Band Over Bypass is a laparoscopic procedure, involving the creation of several small incisions which allow for the placement of the Lap Band over your stomach pouch. The silicone band is secured in place, and connected via tubing to an access port, which allows for adjustments. Your adjustments can be easily performed down the road, either by quickly injecting fluid into the band to tighten it, or by removing fluid to loosen it.
The Band Over Bypass procedures can be completed in one hour or less. Most patients can even return home the very same day.
What are the Risks of the Band Over Bypass Procedure?
Band Over Bypass is a safer and less risky procedure than other revisional choices. That said, all surgeries involving anesthesia carry certain risks, and any type of revisional procedure always entails added complication versus an original procedure. Specific risks with your new Lap Band include erosion, slippage or infection of the band, as well as access port infection.
Will I Need to Follow a Diet Post Surgery?
The diet you follow after your revisional procedure will be similar to the one you followed after your first procedure — or the one you should have followed depending on the level of instructions you were given. This means you’ll move through a six week period involving three two-week phases. You’ll start with all liquids, and continue adding more food choices and solids along the way as you return to a full and complete nutritional program.
