The general medical guidelines for weight-loss surgery are based on body mass index (BMI). BMI is a formula that estimates body fat based on weight and height. Adults with a BMI of 40 or greater may benefit from weight-loss surgery.

Ideal Candidate For Weight Loss Surgery

  • At least one obesity-related medical condition
  • At least six months of supervised weight-loss attempts
  • Weight-loss surgery may be a possibility for teenagers in certain instances.

The guidelines are as follows:

Obesity-related medical conditions with a BMI of 40 or higher
A BMI of 35 or greater, as well as a severe obesity-related medical condition

A Weight loss surgeon may utilize growth charts for teenagers instead of BMI values as a guideline for surgery. These charts illustrate the typical BMI range for each age group.

The surgeon may recommend the treatment depending on how much the adolescent’s BMI is over the normal BMI range. Some adults or adolescents with lower BMIs may be eligible to undergo weight-loss surgery, depending on the type or severity of an obesity-related condition.
