Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery can help you successfully reach a healthier weight and reduce your risk of developing health complications associated with obesity. Health conditions that may be resolved or improved after weight loss surgery can include:
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Sleep apnea
  • High cholesterol
  • Asthma
  • Joint disease
  • Infertility

Additional benefits can include:

  • Restore your health
  • Regain your confidence
  • Improve your quality of life
  • Realize your weight loss goals

Do you qualify for weight loss surgery?

You may qualify for bariatric surgery if you have:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or more
  • BMI over 35 with serious obesity-related health conditions, such as heart disease or type 2 diabetes
  • Tried many ways to lose weight, only to regain the weight back
  • No alcohol or drug addiction
  • Obesity that is not related to an endocrine condition

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
