How much weight will I lose?

Weight-loss results vary from patient to patient, and the amount of weight you lose depends on several things. The Lap Band needs to be in the right position, and you need to be committed to your new lifestyle and healthy eating habits. Obesity surgery is not a miracle cure, and the pounds won't come off by themselves. It is very important to set achievable weight-loss goals from the beginning. A weight-loss of two to three pounds a week in the first year after the operation is possible, but one pound a week is more likely. Twelve to eighteen months after the operation, weekly weight-loss is usually less.

Remember that you should lose weight gradually. Losing weight too quickly creates a health risk and can lead to a number of problems. The main goal is to have weight-loss that prevents, improves, or resolves health problems connected with severe obesity.
