Obesity is a chronic progressive disease and weight regain is a reality after any weight loss program or procedure. Bariatric surgery /weight loss surgery provides the most effective way to lose weight and helps to maintain the weight loss for a much longer period as compared to any other weight loss modality. However, it does not cure obesity. Eventually the body does tend to regain some degree of weight. Hence it is important to be very diligent about following a healthy diet and lifestyle after bariatric surgery. It is also important to exercise regularly after weight loss surgery. Sometimes despite all efforts, patients tend to gain weight. In such situations along with other measures we add some weight loss drugs to contain the weight gain and help patients to lose some weight. Revision bariatric surgery may be considered as an option for patient who regain significant amount of weight and have not responded satisfactorily to all other measures.
