How do I know if I am a candidate for a weight loss surgery?

You can measure your Body Mass Index with our BMI calculator in this website, if the resulting number of your BMI is equal or greater to 30 units, you are a great candidate to undergo a weight loss surgery. If you also suffer from any health condition such as diabetes type 2, severe sleep apnea or obesity-related heart diseases, a gastric surgery could be a good option to revert your condition. 


 

Which type of surgery is the best option for me?

Your surgeon will determine which type of surgery fits you best by analyzing your health condition, BMI and complexion to offer you the best option to meet your needs.


 

Can I eat before my surgery?

You should wait for the pre-op instructions that your surgeon will give you, where he will determine the diet you must follow before your surgery.
