Bariatric Surgery BMI Online Calculator
If you are struggling with obesity and considering bariatric surgery as a solution, your body mass index (BMI) is important in determining your eligibility. Morbid obesity is defined as a BMI score of 40 or more, while a BMI range of 18 to 24.9 is considered optimal.
You generally have a BMI of 30 or greater to qualify for weight loss surgery. However, there are exceptions if you have a lower BMI alongside significant health problems like Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, or high blood pressure. We understand BMI calculators are not accurate for all body types, so we provide extensive pre-op assessments and exams to guarantee your safety before the procedure.
If bariatric surgery is right for you, we can usually arrange for it to take place within 14 days, depending on your diet and health, and with your bariatric surgeon’s approval. Use our BMI online calculator to see what category your BMI falls into. You can also fill out our health questionnaire at no cost to find out if you are suitable for weight loss surgery.
