AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?
Generally, weight loss surgery is recommended for you in any of the following situations.
Your BMI is above 40;
Your BMI is above 30 and you have specific obesity-related conditions (comorbidities), such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, severe joint pain, and sleep apnea;
You have attempted to lose weight for at least two years but failed to do so;
You have been obese for at least 3-5 years;
You are determined to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life.
Depending on your BMI and your conditions, the surgeon chooses the most suitable method among the various bariatric procedures to deliver the most favorable result.
IS WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY WORTH IT?
There is no doubt that health risks triggered by obesity surpass the side effects resulted from weight loss surgery. Bariatric surgery improves diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and other dangerous conditions, resulting in a better quality of life.
Most studies indicate that over 90 percent of individuals suffering from severe obesity successfully lose 50-80 percent of their excess weight after surgery. Several related studies have revealed that people who have had bariatric surgery have a lower risk of death than individuals who did not have the surgery.
