If you have tried years of dieting and exercise but cannot lose weight, bariatric surgery may be a next step.  

Although there are some exceptions, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you are over 18 years old with: 

  • A weight of more than 100 pounds over the ideal body weight. 
  • A body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more or a BMI over 35 with a serious health problem, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure.
  • A demonstrated effort to have attempted weight loss using other methods.
  • An understanding of bariatric surgery.
  • A willingness to make long-term changes in eating habits.
