Am I a Candidate for Weight-Loss Surgery?

As many as 42% of adults face obesity in the United States. It’s an increasingly common occurrence. Candidates for weight loss surgery are determined by their past history of attempts of non-surgical treatment, and current condition. Non-surgical and surgical options can work together in a weight-loss treatment plan to help ensure the lasting effects of surgery.

For surgery to be considered, an adult must meet three conditions:

  • Six months of supervised attempts at weight-loss
  • A body mass index (BMI) of 35 or higher
  • One obesity-related condition

It’s best to seek a consultation with a weight loss surgery expert to decide on the best treatment option.
