Take a trip to Midtown Manhattan, and you see the iconic Empire State Building towering 1,250 feet in the air. With 102 floors, it’s among the top 25 tallest buildings in the world. An estimated 4 million tourists a year visit the Empire State Building to get a bird’s eye view of New York City. And then there’s the Empire State Building Run-Up, or race to the top.
How long would it take you to climb the 1,576 steps to the top of the building? If you’ve struggled with your weight, even after bariatric surgery, something that physically challenging is probably not an option. Even if you don’t have your sights set on stair-stepping your way to the top of one of the tallest buildings in Manhattan, you don’t have to settle for less than average results after your first bariatric surgery to lose weight.
In fact, an estimated 10 percent of weight-loss surgeries will require Revisional Bariatric Surgery to correct problems or improve results, according to a study published in the journal Gastroenterology Research and Practice. A variety of problems can develop after bariatric surgery that can cause health problems, prevent weight loss or lead to weight gain. If you’re not satisfied with the results of your initial surgery, you may be a good candidate for Revisional Bariatric Surgery.
