OBESITY SURGERY

DO I QUALIFY FOR OBESITY SURGERY?

Important checks to make sure you qualify for obesity surgery and that this is the right option for you to tackle your obesity.

Bariatric surgery is intended for you if you have a high BMI and have not had success with other weight loss therapies such as diet, exercise, and medications.

 

To qualify for surgery you must:

- Have a BMI of 40 or greater or a BMI of 35 or greater with one or more obesity related condition

- Understand the risks of bariatric surgery

- Be committed to dietary and other lifestyle changes as recommended by your Brighton Bariatric team

- Have a history of weight loss attempts

- Be fit for general anaesthesia and surgery

 

Is bariatric surgery right for me?

Talk with your Brighton Bariatric surgeon about the different surgical treatments, as well as the benefits and risks.

But remember that:

- Bariatric surgery is not cosmetic surgery

- Bariatric surgery does not involve the removal of body fat

- You must commit to long-term lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, which is the key to the success of bariatric surgery

- Like any type of surgery, complications can potentially occur after bariatric surgery and in some cases corrective procedures may be required
