Weight loss surgery is not a suitable option for everyone. It is not designed for people who simply wish to lose a small amount of weight, or sculpt a certain area of their body.
Instead, bariatric surgery is designed as a major weight loss tool to help individuals suffering from obesity who have a high body mass index (BMI) and/or obesity-related health conditions.
To determine if you are a candidate for surgery, make an appointment to speak with Mr Abbas, who is an expert in bariatrics. Together you can discuss your options for taking the next step.
Body Mass Index (BMI)
One of the determining factors in assessing candidates for weight loss surgery, as well as the type of surgery, is a person’s body mass index (BMI). It is a helpful tool for categorising overall body weight, however it is not the only factor considered. A consultation with Mr Abbas is highly recommended for anyone considering bariatric surgery.
