Ever since I started my professional practice, my patients have always asked me the same question. And I will always tell them the same thing: There are not exact numbers.
It is not really possible to say how much weight will be lost with a gastric sleeve, as each patient may respond differently to the surgery. Your starting weight is more indicative of how many pounds you can lose over time.

I’ll describe to you the average quantity of weight lost I see in my patients and what the studies say after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery.
Most patients will lose an average of 1 to 3 kilograms (2 to 4 pounds) per week, during the first six months to a year. You can expect the most weight loss to occur in the first month due to strict dietary restrictions.
For additional context, the average patient loses 60 to 70 percent of their excess weight (above their ideal weight) by the end of the first year.
