    Default Gastric Sleeve Adjustment/Tightening?

    If weight gain gradually occurs in, say, the five years post gastric sleeve surgery, can the gastric sleeve be adjusted/tightened/revised?

    If so, is the adjusting/tightening/revising as significant as the initial procedure in terms of:Cost? Duration of time of procedure?Duration of time of hospital stay/recovery time?Or, is the adjustment/tightening/revising not as intensive as the initial procedure?Also, how often can a gastric sleeve be adjusted/tightened/revised?

    Is there a limit in the number of times a gastric sleeve can be adjusted/tightened/revised?

    What type of doctor performs gastric sleeve adjusting/tightening/revising procedure?

    Is a gastric sleeve adjustment typically covered, in part, by insurance?

    Never thought about changing the size of the gastric sleeve, but would like to keep an eye on this track going forward. I hope you get an answer to this. I too have a problem with being overweight.
