How much weight will I lose with a gastric band?

Gastric band weight loss results can vary and will depend on how well you follow the rules for band success; to eat slowly, to eat foods of the right texture and to cut out high calorie soft foods and drinks. As a guide, you can expect to lose 50-60% of your excess weight over the first 2 years although many patients go on to lose all of their excess weight (see before and after photos). Here's an example of the weight loss results you could expect*: 

  • Your height:  5ft 6in        
  • Your weight: 17st (240 lbs)         
  • Your ideal weight: 11st (154lbs)  
  • Your excess weight: 86lbs (actual weight 240lbs - ideal weight 154lbs)
  • Your weight loss: 50lbs (60% of 86lbs excess weight)


Short term gastric band result: A December 2013 review of our last 101 gastric band patients showed that at their first band adjustment 5 weeks after surgery, their average weight loss was 1st 8lbs (8.6% of starting weight). That's before their band had even been adjusted!* You can expect to lose more weight with Healthier Weight because we're weight loss specialists.
