Results: Mean patient age was 36.77±7.82 .80% of the study patients were women. There were significant changes in all anthropometric measurments before and after surgery. Average excess weight and average excess BMI lost at 6 months were respectively 43.53 and 50.37%.There was a significant association between excess weight lost and respectively age,preoperative BMI,preoperative fat mass index and preopeartive waist circumfence.
