Revision Surgeries

Have you had a previous weight loss surgery? Are you experiencing problems, complications, and/or not losing the weight expected? A Lighter Me offers several solutions to revise your previous procedure into one that may prove more effective.* These procedures include revising failed lap bands or other unsuccessful procedures to a sleeve, a bypass, or duodenal switch (DS). Contact an ALM coordinator to discuss your situation and learn about favorable revision options.

The average cost of gastric bypass surgery in the United States is $20,000 to $35,000; compare this to A Lighter Me’s solutions in Mexico and you’ll save more than half for the same procedures.
