…get your life back…
How much weight will I lose?
  • Have you followed some diets and experienced the difficulty of losing weight?
  • Have you felt then, like most of us, the immense frustration of gaining this weight back?

This is not surprising, long term studies have determined that:
not less than 90% of overweight persons fail to sustain permanent weight loss through traditional dieting.

By contrast, people who underwent Weight Loss Surgery have had amazing success rates. Usually, the weight loss is about 50% to 80% of the excess weight for the 1st year after surgery.

65% to 80% of excess weight lost in 1 to 2 years after surgery.
E.g: if you have an excess weight of 40 kgs you could expect to lose about 32 kgs the 1st year.
50% to 60% of excess weight lost in 1 to 2 years after surgery.
50% to 60% loss of excess weight loss in 1 to 2 years after surgery.
Of course, those figures are averages. Some people get better results than others. It is mainly a matter of motivation and compliance with dietary guidelines and exercises – the guidelines are given to all patients after their Weight Loss Surgery.
For best results, you also need a regular follow-up by your surgeon, who might prescribe you a contouring/cosmetic surgery for better aesthetic appearance.
