In brief: You'll lose weight.

Hopefully. You'll follow a prudent weight loss diet and exercise regimen.
You'll supplement vitamins. You'll consult regularly with a Dietitian. You'll get blood tests to make sure you're nutritionally optimized.

In brief: 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.

In brief: Life Changing

And wonderful! There are short term results from the actual surgery, like pain/nausea, which are temporary and will resolve with time.
In the long run, you will experience weight loss, better energy/health, etc. It requires commitment from you as well: eat healthy, exercise, and use the tool that surgery gives you to maximize results. See a bariatric surgeon for more info. Good luck!

In brief: Weight loss!

After bariatric surgery, your life will change.
You will not be so hungry, you will be full early, you must make some changes in the way you eat. We have a saying: your life. Transformed.
