You’re doing research on weight loss surgery, which means you or someone you know is sick and tired of the toll of extra weight. You’ve come to the right place. Evolve, the Experts in Weight Loss Surgery, is here to help you understand the surgical options you have to fight obesity. Weight loss surgery is an effective tool to help individuals lose weight, improve their health, and reduce or eliminate medical conditions associated with obesity. That being said, it’s not right for everyone.
Am I A Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
Answering these simple questions can help you understand whether or not you qualify for weight loss surgery.
- Have you unsuccessfully attempted to lose weight through diet or exercise? Surgery should never be your first attempt at losing weight. In fact, most insurance companies require patients have tried other weight loss methods before they will cover the procedure.
- Are you severely obese? People with a BMI of 40 qualify for weight loss surgery. BMIs between 35 and 40 may also qualify if they have a obesity-related health problem such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea. Use our BMI calculator below to check where you fall.
- Do you understand the weight loss surgery process? Bariatric surgery will help you lose weight and keep it off, but it also requires hard work and dedication to a lifestyle different from the one you are living now.
- Are you ready to pay for bariatric surgery? While a handful of insurances are starting to help cover some the cost of weight loss surgery, most do not fully cover the procedures. Evolve offers cash pay options, as well as competitive pricing to all inquiring. Learn more here.
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may qualify for life-changing weight loss surgery. To browse the types of procedures we offer, click here.
Calculate Your BMI
Don’t know if you meet the BMI requirement? Calculate your BMI by entering the information requested below. To be eligible for weight loss surgery, you must possess a BMI of greater than 40. Patients with BMIs 35 and above are also candidates, if they have an additional obesity-related disease such as diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.
While most people with a BMI of 35 or over qualify for weight loss surgery, Evolve does offer a non-surgical option to people with BMIs between 30 and 35.
