Hi doctor, currently I'm weighing at 136kg and my height is 160cm. What steps can I take to determine if I'm suitable for weight loss surgery?

Good day, thank you for your question regarding weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery.
As your weight is 136kg and height is 160cm your BMI is 53.1 kg/m2.
This indicates you're eligible for bariatric surgery.
As a bariatric surgeon you need to come see me for a preoperative assessment and counseling regarding the surgery. This will be followed by a detailed post operative plan.
Please let us know and we'll schedule an appointment for you.
thank you.
