Am I a good candidate?
Hello dear, thanks for your question.You are a good candidate for this procedure if your BMI is over 32. 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.
Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery? (Gastric Sleeve)
Hi!With your current height and weight you have a BMI (Body mass Index) of 40 which qualifies you for weight loss surgery following the ASMBS or IFSO Criteria. You would benefit greatly for a gastric sleeve surgery without going too aggressive like with a gastric bypass. I hope this helps. warm regards, Dr. Alvarez
