How much weight can I expect to lose after weight loss surgery and how long will this weight loss take?

The amount of weight that you lose and the amount of time it takes to lose the weight depends on a number of factors including the type of weight loss surgery that you choose and how committed you are to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the surgery.

With LAP-BAND/REALIZE™ band surgery, an average patient loses 36% to 40% excess body weight within one year with an average of 60% to 65% excess weight loss at 3-5 years.

With gastric bypass, an average patient experiences 70% to 80% excess weight loss at one year.

With sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve surgery, weight loss falls in between the LAP-BAND/REALIZE™band and gastric bypass.
