Hello,

I was once a very active member of obesityhelp.com. I am looking for information from anyone over the age of 60 who has had revision WLS. I had my WLS 13yrs ago & I am thinking of having revision surgery. Even though I have so much loose skin, I feel like I need a revision.

There is an entire subforum devoted to revision surgery:

Why do you feel like you need a revision? Is your existing surgery no longer working?

Hi Gail, You do not really give much information but a visit to your Bariatric Surgeon is probably the first step in seeing where things are at. If you have lots of loose skin you may not need to lose as much weight as you think.
