Although the outcome can be rosy, don't neglect to consider the negatives associated with weightloss surgery. Even if you avoid the complications, which are many, you'll still need to take vitamins and mineral supplements regularly to avoid osteoporosis and nutrient deficiencies.
Before undergoing weightloss surgery, consider your options. If you've never made a serious effort to lose weight through diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, or counseling, then you're jumping the gun. Weightloss surgery is not for the impatient; it's for those for whom nothing else works.
