How Long Will I Continue to Lose Weight After Bariatric Surgery?
- Asked 3 years ago
and is the weight loss different for gastric bypass vs Lap Band?
Gastric bypass weight loss
Gastric bypass patients will lose most of their weight in the first 12 - 18 months after surgery and on average lose 60 - 80% of their excess weight but regain 10 -20% of their excess weight over the next 2 -3 years with long -term weight loss of about 60%. Lap-band patients lose the weight slower over about 3 years and average about 60% excess weight loss as well.
