Can you lose 100 lb with the gastric sleeve?

A gastric sleeve surgery is a very effective surgery that can help you lose 100 lb without the need of a more agressive surgery like the gastric bypass. Remember that the sleeve has less complications down the road than the bypass and it's a much simpler surgery as well. 

I hope this helps.
