Are you eligible for surgery?
The upper limit for a healthy body mass index (BMI) is 25. If your BMI goes over 40, your risk of health problems associated with obesity increases significantly. At this point you would become a potential candidate for weight loss surgery.
People would also be considered if they had BMI of 35 + with co-morbidities if they would benefit from surgery. If your BMI is less than 35, there are still non-surgical treatments available to help you lose weight.
If you carry excess weight then losing weight can help to change your life. Our patients tell us that weight-loss surgery gives them the chance to do things they never thought possible. They have renewed zest for life with the energy and enthusiasm to play with their kids, play sports or even the confidence to go on a beach holiday.
