Is Weight Loss Operation Right for You?


You may be a candidate for weight loss surgery if:

  • You're an obese adult with BMI > 32.5, especially if you have a weight-related condition, such as type 2 diabetes.
  • You know the risks and benefits.
  • You're ready to adjust how you eat after the surgery.
  • You're committed to making lifestyle changes to keep the weight off.

Teens usually don't get weight loss surgery unless they're extremely obese or have severe weight related conditions.

If you're thinking about it, talk to your doctor about whether it's a good option for you.
