Who should consider bariatric surgery/weight loss surgery?

People that have a BMI of over 40 should consider weight loss surgery.

People that have a BMI of over 35 with significant health problems such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnoea and snoring
  • High cholesterol
  • Family history of heart disease
  • Previous attempts at weight loss that have failed
  • Committed to lifestyle change with realistic weight loss goals

Not everyone is suitable for weight loss surgery. It is a tool rather than a magic solution. Patients have already tried every diet, quick weight loss strategies and joined many exercise programs, but these only temporarily work for them. The weight usually bounces back quickly.

Weight loss surgery will help to keep the weight down more permanently. We are an experienced group of professionals who will help you to achieve your weight loss goals.
