How common is it to regain significant amounts of weight in the years following weight loss surgery?

This isn’t nearly as common today as in the past. Multiple factors exist: A. Older operations were technically less durable. B. We believe the operation is just a tool to help you change your lifestyle. ‘An indispensable tool’ but nevertheless, a tool. Without significant support and education over the long haul, the tool has an increased risk of failure. C. You cannot live your current lifestyle and get anywhere but where you are right now. By the way, this is true of almost all things in life. If we do not change our lifestyle, no surgical or non-surgical treatment can be durable.
