Surgeon Denis Halmi said in his OMA lecture in 2015 Washington DC that:

30% of patients regain the lost weight by 10 years post bariatric surgery.


Dr Denis Halmi in his lecture, Recidivism after Bariatric Surgery, states:

They are less effective than the primary surgery. 
Some patients lose little weight.
