Background: Bariatric surgery is an accepted treatment for obesity. And, only a limited number of studies were concerned with the outcome of significant weight loss following the surgery procedures. Objective: the aim of this systematic review was to evaluate and demonstrate the comprehensive data about the significant loss of body weight of obese patients after appropriate techniques of different bariatric surgery procedures and to determine the impact of bariatric surgery on weight loss. Methodology: MEDLINE and Cochrane databases were searched from 1989 to July 15, 2016. Search terms included bariatric surgery, individual bariatric procedures, and obesity significant body weight loss. Studies were included if they described outcomes of interest, which were significant body weight loss after gastric bypass, gastric band, or sleeve gastrectomy performed on obese patients. Conclusion: Significant body weight loss was achieved in most of the obese patients after undergoing bariatric surgery; most of the studies that were included in this review showed that all current bariatric operations lead to major weight loss.
