I am 22 years old and 290lbs. I'm seriously considering having the sleeve bypass surgery. Do you think I'll be turned away?

How many more years do you want to throw away?
You are morbidly obese and a candidate for bariatric surgery. If you have tried everything and have failed, you should consider having the surgery. I'm operating on teenagers now. Patients invariably say that they wish they did the surgery sooner. Ignore the advice of people who don't know what they are talking about.
Hello dear, thanks for your question.Yes, you are a good candidate for this procedure. At this point bariatric surgery is the best option for patients with obesity tipe 2 and 3 to lose weight. Is the option that last more, and more efficent. Some times patients do the mistake having a plastic surgery when what they need is a bariatric surgery. I suggest to make an appointment with a Board Certified for a personal evaluation. Good look.
