If you’re severely overweight and it’s starting to affect your health and your life, weight-loss surgery could be the right choice for you. Weight-loss surgery helps you to gradually lose the weight and keep it off. So you can reduce or even eliminate health risks associated with obesity and live a healthier, happier life.

To be eligible for weight-loss surgery, you must have a:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40 (100 pounds over ideal weight)
  • BMI of 35 or greater with complications related to obesity, such as hypertension and diabetes
  • Calculate your BMI
