When Should Sleeve Gastrectomy Be Considered?

Remember that you are not just about numbers ... Your struggle to lose weight is more important than numbers!


Is it the right time for surgery?

There are dozens of factors to consider for both the surgeon who will perform your surgery and those who want to have surgery;

  • Body Mass Index (BMI),
  • Chronic diseases,
  • Professional methods you try to lose weight except surgery,
  • Your job,
  • Duration obesity
  • Impact of obesity in your social life

All of the criterias should be considered.

A person with a body mass index above 40 cannot be considered suitable for surgery, and someone with a body mass index of 30-40 may be considered suitable for surgery. So keep in mind that it's not just numbers.
