Weight Loss Surgery Before-and-After Photos

Viewing before and after photographs of bariatric patients is a wonderful way to see how weight loss surgery can change your life. The individuals in the gallery below represent patients who have undergone a variety of procedures, including Lap Band surgery, gastric bypass surgery or gastric sleeve surgery.

Each bariatric surgery before and after patient photo featured in this gallery lists the surgeon's name, his/her location, contact information and website link should you desire to contact the surgeon for a consultation.
