Weight Loss Surgery Benefits
You should only consider surgery after you’ve tried other weight loss alternatives such as diet and exercise. It should be a last alternative because it is a serious one. Typically, you can be approved for laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery and other weight loss surgeries if you are morbidly obese, which creates a number of other medical problems and risks.
If you are twice your ideal body weight, have a bmi, or body mass index, above 40 or are 100 pounds or more overweight, you fit in the morbidly obese category and may face serious health risks. If you already have medical problems due to your obesity but are not morbidly obese you should also consider weight loss surgery
