BMI is factored using weight and height. I suggest finding a BMI calculator online for an easy way to calculate what weight you would need to be in order to reach your goal of 33. Best, Dr. Emer

BMI is based upon height and weight. There are several sites on line that can tell you the difference in weight for your given height.

I would have to know your current height and weight in order to calculate it out for you. Most surgeons require a BMI maximum of 30 in order to proceed with surgery. You can find BMI calculators on the web using Google.
