BMI Calculator

Qualification for bariatric surgery is based largely on a calculation called your Body Mass Index (BMI). This calculation is determined by your height and weight.

Your BMI gives you an understanding of the level of risk to your health.  Patients with a BMI greater than 30 are considered obese and are at risk for developing serious health issues, including diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipemia, and heart disease. A consultation with Texas Advanced Surgical & Bariatrics  can determine if a medical or nutritional approach may be best.

You may be a candidate if:

  • Your BMI is greater than or equal to 40.
  • Your BMI is greater than or equal to 35 and you have comorbidities, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or sleep apnea.
  • Your BMI is greater than or equal to 30. There may be surgical bariatric options for you.
