Weight loss surgery as with any major surgery has risks of which one should be aware off.  These may include:

  • An internal leakage of digestive juices  into the body cavity
  • Wound infection at incision sites
  • Hernias - a weakening of the abdominal wall
  • Develop gall bladder disease or gall stones – due to weight loss
  • Blood clots – may cause a more serious condition called a pulmonary embolism
  • Vitamin deficiencies-may be preventable by taking daily vitamin supplements. Periodic lab testing may also be required
  • As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of death
