How Much Weight Do You Lose After Gastric Sleeve
Depends on you: Sleeve gastrectomy is a physiologic restrictive operation. The average weight loss is about 70% of the excess weight. However, it depends on the patient and his/her initial weight before surgery. Nothing say that you cant lose all your excess weight if you follow the instruction of the diet and exercise. I have several patients who lost more than 100 lbs. in the first 6 month after the surgery. ...Read more
Sleeve surgery: Is safe and effective. It works through several hormonal pathways and not just restriction (e.g. Ghrelin, glp-1, pyy, etc). These honors take hunger away. Lifestyle changes are required for all bariatric surgeries. When all goes away, patients lose 60-75 lbs, for every 100 lbs they are over weight. ...Read more
Sleeve gastrectomy : The sleeve gastrectomy is very effective and has a high success rate. Patients typically lose about 60-65% of their excess body weight by a year to year and a half. That means if you are 100lbs overweight, you would lose 60-65 lbs. If you are 200 lbs overweight, you would lose 120-130 lbs. This doesn't mean you lose the weight automatically. You have to eat the right foods and exercise as well. ...Read more

Attending support groups and making sure to follow up with your surgeon are also keys to success. Good luck! ...Read more
Dr.I would like to know for what reason do you think am not losing weight , after having the gastric sleeve surgery for the past 16 days?
Weight loss: Is still based on the simple equation of calories eaten minus calories burned off in a day. If you have not lost much weight, you are managing to eat the same amount of calories each day as you use. If you eat more than you use, you will gain weight. If you use more than you eat you will lose. You need to see if you have been low on using calories (and can increase activity to help) or vice vers. ...Read more
I had a gastric sleeve 4 weeks ago. Why am i not losing weight ? I'm only eating 400-800 cal/day & working out. I've only lost 10# from week one.
Ask your surgeon!: It would be unfair to you and to the person who operated on you to speculate as to this question. If you, indeed, are having this issue, then by all means, call or visit with your surgeon and get your questions answered. The surgeon deserves the courtesy and you certainly do. Take a list of questions you think of regarding your surgery and post operative period with you to your visit. ...Read more
Both similar: The sleeve and bypass work in almost all patients. Our experience is to expect about an 80% excess body weight loss with the bypass and 70% with the sleeve. So if you weigh 250 and you are supposed to weigh 150, then you have an excess weight of 100 lbs. Most patients make their decision based on side effects or risks. Both are great. ...Read more

I had gastric sleeve in 2010 and am starting to gain weight after losing 90 pounds. Will my stomach shrink back if i eat less?
Prob not: Stomach is a dynamic organ and expands as we eat and than empties slowly over time. Surgery on stomach to restrict capacity works well for most people but stomach capacity can get bigger over time. So now you have to rely on ur habits and visual cues and food diary to figure out how many calories ur are taking in. Also need to work on burning more calories than u take in. ...Read more
