Can I Try Weight Loss Surgery?

Q:
Can I try weight loss surgery?

A:
Weight loss surgery shouldn’t be considered as a common option for people who desire to lose weight.

In fact, only people in the following conditions, they may consider receiving a weight loss surgery.

  • You’re an obese adult
  • Your BMI is 40 or more, or is between 35 and 40 but with an obesity-related condition such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure
  • You’ve tried all other weight loss methods, such as dieting and exercise, but the effect is not obvious
  • You have a full understanding of the risks and side effects of the surgery
  • After surgery, you make healthy lifestyle changes and attend regular check-ups

So do not consider it before the basic trying – dietary changes and regular exercise. If you’re thinking about it, talk to your doctor about whether it’s a good option for you.
