Weight loss: Provided there are complications from the surgery itself, you will start experiencing benefits of the surgery, namely, weight loss. Depending on the modality used, it will be either more sharp or slow. Also, you may have some side effects, such as diarrhea, again depending on the type of surgery. Also, it is very important you will need to stick to a dietary regimen and not to eat what you want.
