In brief: 6-12 months
Most sleeve patients will lose their weight (70% of excess wt) in 6 months.
Most bypass patients will lose their weight (75-80% of excess weight) over 12 months. Band patients lose about 50% of excess weight over 2 yrs.

In brief: Depends
Interesting question! it depends on the type of surgery you had.
Typically, less aggressive modalities, such as lap band will produce gradual weight loss (a few lbs/week) and the band will/might need to be adjusted periodically. Roux en y and other more radical methods may cause substantial weight loss over a short period of time (1-3 months).
