Weight-loss surgery options
We offer the full range of weight loss surgery procedures, and finding the right option for you involves careful consideration of your situation and goals. Each procedure has it’s own unique benefits and features for you to consider.
Your BMI is an important factor in determining which procedure is right for you. You can work out your BMI using our calculator by entering your height and weight. As a guide, procedures are generally recommended depending on BMI as follows:
- Gastric band – BMI 30 or above
- Gastric sleeve – BMI 35 or above
- Gastric balloon – BMI 27 or above
- Gastric bypass – BMI 35 or above
These numbers are guides, and your consultant will discuss the details with you during your consultation.
