Hospital Mi Doctor can support the following weight loss surgeries: gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, duodenal switch, revisional surgeries, sleeve plication and others. Below are some of the most popular surgeries being performed with their expected weight loss:
Gastric Sleeve Expected Weight Loss
Gastric sleeve surgery is often used as a two-step process for losing a large amount of excess weight. If the post-op diet is followed closely as well as exercise, a patient can expect to lose approximately 60% of their excess weight in just one year following their sleeve gastrectomy. Along with this weight loss, patients have seen major improvements or total remission for several obesity-related conditions (comorbidities) such as obstructive sleep apnea, Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Gastric Bypass Expected Weight Loss
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most popular types of bariatric surgeries available. Overall results may vary depending on the individual and their overall health as well as how closely they follow the diet and how often they exercise. Many studies have shown that patients can expect a loss of excess weight between 60%-70% after the first year and about 77% to 83% after two years following their gastric bypass surgery. One particular study shows a 95% improvement in obesity-related comorbidities just one year post gastric bypass surgery.
Duodenal Switch Expected Weight Loss
It’s important to understand that while weight loss is inevitable in weight loss surgery, there is no real guarantee just how much a patient will lose and when they will. Some factors that may alter overall weight loss include the success of the surgical procedure in general, how much they follow the new diet and what type of exercise they embark on and the lifestyle changes they follow through with. Surgeons report an average weight loss between 70% and 80% of excess weight for each patient in the first year following surgery.
