Gradual weight loss is safer or more beneficial

Myth

Gradual weight loss (such as occurs after gastric band) is safer or more beneficial to long-term success than rapid weight loss (that occurs after Gastric Bypass or Sleeve Gastrectomy).

Reality

This is simply not true. Not only is the more rapid weight loss that accompanies Gastric Bypass or Sleeve Gastrectomy not detrimental to health, but it actually benefits your health by causing earlier resolution of your comorbid conditions. The rapidity of the weight loss has no effect on the likelihood of maintaining a healthy weight once it is achieved.
