Which weight loss surgery is most effective?

The effectiveness of weight loss surgery depends on such factors as:

  • patients’ age
  • the starting BMI and weight
  • health condition
  • activity and ability to exercise
  • surgery type
  • patients’ and their family motivation
  • engagement in following diet and activity guidelines.

 

It is hard to generalize about weight loss surgeries effectiveness, however, NIDDK found out that the effects of the 3 most common bariatric surgeries are:

  • about 30% of weight loss within the 1st year in gastric bypass (25% lost weight after 5 years)
  • about 25% of weight loss within the 1st year in gastric sleeve (19% lost weight after 5 years)
  • about 14% of weight loss within the 1st year in gastric band (12% lost weight after 5 years).
