Surgical procedures for obesity may be appropriate for some dangerously obese people, and they may reduce heart problems and many of the risks associated with obesity. These risks include high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and diabetes. In fact, surgery provides much greater control of weight and diabetes than nonsurgical weight-loss methods. Studies are reporting significant reductions in diabetes, and the need for diabetic medications, after surgery. Other medical conditions that often improve after surgery include heartburn, arthritis, and other joint and circulation problems. The care of patients undergoing bariatric surgery, before and after surgery, requires specialized expertise and facilities. Studies have shown that the likelihood of complications is significantly associated with the experience of the surgeon and staff. Bariatric surgeries produce weight loss through one of two approaches: * Restrictive Banding Procedures. These procedures restrict the amount of food by closing off parts of the stomach with bands. * Malabsorptive Bypass Procedures. This approach restricts the amount of food and also reduces absorption by using a bypass of parts of the intestine. The malabsorptive procedures are more successful in achieving weight loss than the banding approach, but they carry a greater ...Read more

Experience shows that the sleeve will not stretch more than about 5% if kept tight from the beginning. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

About 1% leak rate: Leaks have steadily decreased with experience. Now less than 1%. For our practice, we have learned to stay on liquids 2 weeks and puréed foods for two additional weeks. That lowers gut pressure until fully healed. Read more
Gas: Certain eating behaviors early after bariatric surgery can result in more bloating and discomfort. Typically we instruct patients to avoid chewing gum, sipping through straws, gulping food and liquids, and absolutely avoiding any carbonated drinks. The GI tract tends to be a little slower after surgery. This along with tissue swelling can result in gas accumulation and discomfort. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What are the chances of gastric sleeve surgery failing in the FIRST couple weeks/months? & how common does it happen?
Sleeve and diet: If by "failing, " you mean that your weight did not go down, it is possible. The procedure should be combined with a change in diet.
