How much weight will I lose after gastric sleeve surgery?

A Sleeve Gastrectomy is a very effective weight loss operation, even though the amount of weight loss depends on several factors; diet, exercise, lifestyle and overall the commitment to change your old habits, it’s very important to follow all the guidelines the surgeon provided to the patient.

The best results are achieved when a multidisciplinary team supports patients though both surgical and lifestyle options. Dr. Maytorena patients have lost up to 80 - 90 percent of their excess weight, the expected weight loss the first month after surgery is from 20 to 30 pounds. After the first month you can expect 8 to 12 pounds per month, of all guidelines are follow.

If your number seems lower than expected, do not get upset. People are surprised that they cannot expect to go from 300 lbs down to 120 lbs from surgery alone. Gastric bypass is not magic, but it will get your weight down to something more manageable. Once your weight drops, it becomes easier to exercise, stay on your feet longer, enjoy life and continue to lose more weight.

The hardest part is losing the first 50 lbs of weight. Once you start to notice results you will be motivated to lose more, eat healthier, stay active, brag to your friends, and show off your amazing progress!
