Benefits of Surgery

Immediately following surgery, most people lose weight rapidly and continue to do so for 18 to 24 months after the procedure, when the weight loss tapers off. Because of this extensive and permanent weight loss, the following are observed:

  • The chances of dying prematurely from obesity are reduced to approximately the same as the average population.
  • There is approximately 90% reduction in obesity-related co-morbid factors such as back pain, diabetes, high blood pressure, urinary leakage and sleep apnea.
  • Almost all patients feel more energetic and optimistic, and are able to be more active and mobile. Patients usually enjoy increased energy almost immediately following recovery and can quickly resume an exercise program.
