Unlike many weight programs or diets, most patients who undergo bariatric surgery lose 40 to 70 percent of their excess weight. They are able to keep it off long-term if they commit to lifelong behavioral changes. Changing habits in areas such as nutrition, exercise, and stress management are essential to a healthy lifestyle and keeping weight off.
