Step 1

The decision to have weight loss surgery is not one to be taken lightly. But the more information you gather, the more comfortable you’ll be. That’s why during the Getting Started step of our 4 Step Process, you’ll gather the essentials:

  • Do you qualify for weight loss surgery?
  • What are your payment and insurance options?
  • What should you look for when choosing a bariatric surgeon?
  • What happens during your initial consultation?
OK, Let’s Start!

Your body mass index (BMI) is the initial factor that determines whether you’ll qualify for weight loss surgery. Click the link below to calculate your BMI and find out if you qualify for surgery.
