Weight Loss

Weight loss

The postoperative weight loss we offer to our patients is truly unique! As you will see in the following two tables the weight loss results are grouped by gender and BMI. In each table you can see the initial mean weight that corresponds to each preoperative BMI category and how much weight you will lose on average up to 4 years postoperatively. The weight loss to each of the postoperative years it is not added to that of the previous years. Instead it shows the mean weight loss up to that particular time period.
