Surgical Weight Loss Procedures

Surgery for weight loss is called bariatric surgery. During bariatric procedures changes are made to your digestive system to help you loose weight.If non-surgical treatments have not helped you to lose weight and keep it off, weight loss surgery can be a safe and effective solution. If you have a BMI over 30kg/m2 , you may be eligible for one of the following procedures.

NICE set guidelines for weight loss surgery in the NHS. These are that you are eligible if:

1-You have a body mass index of 40 or higher, or 35 or higher in the presence of a significant weight related co-morbidity

2-You have completed a tier 3 weight management programme 

These criteria take account of the public cost of providing surgery and are therefore more restrictive than those that apply in private practice where the same financial limitations do not apply. In general you are eligible for weight loss surgery in the private sector if your BMI is 30 or higher.
