In brief: Weight watchers

No, they do not have specific meal plans for specific weight loss operations.
However, you can use weight watchers as a way to control your eating habits after weight loss surgery. Just be aware that if you have the time, you can prepare food at home for yourself that is even healthier than weight watchers.

In brief: No

Weight watchers is based on point counting no matter what weight to medical history you have.
Each food item has a point scale and you have a maximum amount per day. For gastric bypass pts you still need to worry about dumping syndrome and maintaining your protein intake.
