I'm thinking of having a gastric bypass to shift a lot of weight. However, Would I need to lose any weight before I had the gastric bypass?

Losing weight prior to Gastric Bypass Surgery
We do not routinely have patient losss weight prior to gastric bypass surgery uinless the BMI is greater than 60 or you have an enlarged liver. Some surgeons do require a pre-operative weight loss so it is best to check with your bariatric surgeon.
