Am I a Candidate for weight loss surgery?
If you are overweight and have concerns about how your weight may be affecting your health, then surgery may be right for you.
“Surgery can be considered when other attempts at weight loss have been tried and been unsuccessful”.
There are specific criteria for weight loss surgery. These are based on BMI and other health co-morbidities (any effect your weight may be having on your health and general well being).
- BMI 40 or more, surgery is considered indicated as the risk of developing serious health problems is very high.
- BMI 35-40 with obesity related health issues.
- BMI 30-35 with obesity related health issues may be eligible however individual assessment is required.
