Weight loss surgery has a high success rate and many of the patients lose an incredible amount of weight; the weight they lose is of course highly dependent on the way they choose to live their lives after the surgery but the initial operation stands many in good stead for living a long and healthy life. As a general guide weight loss surgery produces the following results:
- Gastric Band surgery: 50 percent weight loss
- Gastric bypass surgery: up to 70 percent weight loss
- Gastric balloon surgery: around 35 percent weight loss
Each patient responds differently to surgery so it is impossible to say how much weight an individual will lose.
