If you have Lap-Band surgery, you will feel full much sooner while eating, causing you to eat less and lose weight quickly. Assuming you follow proper guidelines, you will lose up to 55% of your excess weight within 1 to 2 years. For example:
- If you are 5’4″ and weigh 220 lbs, you will lose up to 45 lbs.
- If you are 5’9″ and weigh 300 lbs, you will lose up to 75 lbs.
As a result of your dramatic weight loss, you will also improve or “cure” your major obesity-related health issues, including diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and many others.
However, the procedure has a high likelihood of complications over the long-term if you do not stick closely to your surgeon’s and dietitian’s advice.
