What to Expect After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric bypass has become one of the longest performed bariatric surgeries with massive amounts of patient success to combat morbid obesity. Gastric bypass surgery is a more complex procedure due to using both restriction and malabsorption to provide patients with substantial weight loss.

Average expected weight loss results are:

  • 3 months post-op: 30-40% excess weight loss*

  • 6 months post-op: 50-55% excess weight loss*

  • 12 months post-op: 65-75% excess weight loss*

  • 18 months post-op: 70-80% excess weight loss*

*Individual results may vary

Major Life-Changing Benefits

  • Expected weight loss of 65-75% within first-year post-op

  • Improved quality of life
  • Non-scale victories (NSV’s)
  • Feel better about yourself and a boosted sense of self
  • Lifestyle changes

Your Skin After Gastric Bypass Surgery

The RNY gastric bypass is performed laparoscopically, making it minimally invasive using 4 to 5 abdominal incisions. This reduces scarring and promotes healing/recovery. The drawback of losing weight rapidly is increasing the possibility of having excess, sagging skin. There are ways to reduce excess skin, although sometimes plastic and cosmetic surgery is needed to remove it in places like the arms, thighs, stomach, etc.

Loose, Sagging, and Excess Skin

Loose skin becomes apparent after significant weight loss. Everyone has different skin elasticity, meaning some people have excess skin after gastric bypass and some people do not. If sagging skin exists, plastic surgery procedures may help.
