Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Need to lose weight?  There are plenty of options that promise to help you shed pounds and achieve your goal weight. If you’re like many people who are overweight, you’ve probably tried every diet and exercise plan in the book, only to be left frustrated and perhaps even feeling like a failure.

We want you to know this: You have not failed.

If you’ve been struggling with your weight and are tired of spinning your wheels on diet after diet, it may be time to consider weight loss surgery.

Bariatric surgery isn’t for everyone, but it is a good option for those that have tried to lose weight unsuccessfully. If you are significantly overweight or are suffering from weight-related health conditions, bariatric surgery may be the right choice for you.

According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, a weight loss surgery candidate may have:

  • Current BMI of at least 40, or you are more than 100 pounds overweight.
  • Or a BMI of at least 35 and one or more obesity-related co-morbidities such as type II diabetes, sleep apnea and other respiratory disorders, or heart disease.
  • You are unable to achieve a healthy weight loss sustained for a period of time with prior weight loss efforts.

Making the decision to have weight loss surgery isn’t one to take lightly. The experienced bariatric team at McCarty Weight Loss Center will evaluate your health and discuss your goals.

Don’t wonder any longer. If you’re considering weight loss surgery, contact us today to discuss your needs and determine which weight loss option is for you.
