Weight loss after bariatric surgery may seem a bit slow to some people, but it is a gradual process and most surgeons predict that, in the first few months, you will lose up to forty pounds, even more. 

Predictions for the first few years are also great. You will lose up to eighty percent of your weight and with changes in lifestyle and eating habits, you will have full control over your body. The results of surgery will remain steady and positive, which means that you will not gain back your weight, even years after the surgery.
