Do I Qualify for Weight Loss Surgery?


Below are some general guidelines to determine if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.

Several factors are taken into consideration. Your BMI and other coexisting medical conditions is a start.

  • have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 35, or
  • have a BMI of over 30 and are experiencing severe negative health effects, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, related to being overweight
  • more than 100 lbs. over your ideal body weight, or
  • unable to achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, in spite of prior weight loss efforts

Calculate your BMI using these tools from the National Institutes of Health:
