REGISTER NOW for a FREE informational seminar with Bariatric Surgeon Sajida Ahad, MD, FACS. Or, call (319) 398-6747 for more information.
Average weight loss after bariatric surgery is 60 to 80 percent of your excess body weight within the first year. Many patients see an improvement or complete resolution in conditions associated with obesity: high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, joint pain and depression.
However, every patient’s journey and weight loss will depend on his or her level of compliance and commitment to healthy dietary changes and exercise throughout his or her lifetime. The Bariatric Surgery Clinic will continue to monitor your health and weight loss after surgery through mandatory follow-up visits at one week, every three months for the first year, and then yearly.
