Meet The Surgeon

Is there a maximum and minimum weight for weight loss surgery?

There is no maximum weight you have to be to qualify for weight loss surgery and most units that can carry out weight loss surgery have equipment that can easily handle patients who are in excess of 50 stone.

The lower BMI limit for surgery depends up on your medical circumstances and ethnicity and can be as low was 27.5. We can talk you through whether or not you are a suitable candidate following a detailed medical consultation.
