In brief: Yes if you work it
I have seen people do very well after weight loss surgery.
It takes few months after surgery for results to show it is not dramatic the weight loss. But keep tonifying the body and with weight loss make sure you manage nutritional needs simultaneously.

In brief: Absolutely
Surgical weight loss is the single most successful means of losing weight long term compared to any conventional method such as diet and exercise.
It is also the most effective way to resolve underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Surgical weight loss does require work and needs to be performed in conjunction with a comprehensive after care program.
