Weight Loss Surgery FAQ's

As with all surgical operations, there are associated risks. Some producers are more invasive  than others. It is important to choose a specialist bariatric surgeon with considerable  experience. In the hands of a highly experienced Healthier Weight surgeon, the all bariatric procedures  are safe and effective. 

Due to the considerable amount of weight that gastric sleeve patients typically lose, it’s possible that you will experience some excess, loose or saggy skin. This most commonly occurs in the abdominal apron, or trunk area. The amount of excess skin you’ll be left with following a gastric sleeve operation varies and will depend upon your age and weight before the procedure. Generally, the heavier and older you are, the more likely you are to have excess skin. Younger patients tend not to have as much lax skin due to greater natural skin elasticity. 

Every patient will experience a different amount of weight loss. We expect on general that most people will lose…

Gastric bypass – 70-80% excess weight loss

Gastric sleeve – 60-70% excess weight loss 

Gastric band – 50-60% excess weight loss

In the first 6 months to 2 years is when you can expect to see the most weight loss. 

You can eat most foods, providing they don’t cause you discomfort. However, because you will be consuming less food in general, it is important that you include foods that are rich in protein, but low in fat and sugar. We encourage you to eat vegetables, fruit, wholegrains, lean meat and fish. You will be provided with detailed nutritional information following your gastric sleeve operation.
