In order to qualify for bariatric surgery, you’ll need to meet one of the following requirements: either a BMI of over 40, or a BMI of over 35 with obesity related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea. You will also need to have attempted to lose weight with diet and exercise alone with no success.
Bariatric procedures are inpatient procedures with short operation times. Depending on the procedure you choose, the surgery itself can last anywhere between 45 minutes to 3 hours. You’ll be in hospital for at least one night to recover.
Thanks to advances in surgical techniques, bariatric surgery has become a low risk procedure with very few complications. Aside from surgical complications such as infections and blood clots, bariatric surgery can increase the risk of vitamin deficiencies and acid reflux. More serious complications such as staple line leaks can occur.
