Study: Patients maintain muscle mass 5 years after surgically induced weight loss

Newly published research provides important evidence supporting the long-term safety and viability of bariatric surgery.The study finds that muscle mass and fat-free mass (organs, bones, tissues) levels are maintained in the body following a rapid post-surgical weight loss. The finding dispels fears that gastric bypass surgery may result in a detrimental loss of muscle that continues for years after initial weight loss, leading to long-term muscle insufficiency despite weight regain.
