Surgical Weight Loss

If your body mass index (BMI) is 35 or over and you have unsuccessfully tried numerous methods to lose weight, surgery may be a better and safer option for you. Premier Weight Loss Solutions has an experienced team to help you lose significant weight and improve your overall health.

We specialize in a number of weight loss (bariatric) surgeries, including:

Am I a Candidate For Weight Loss Surgery?

One of the first steps in your decision-making process is to determine if you meet the guidelines for weight loss surgery. Our surgeon uses the guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) when considering treatment options for patients.

ASMBS Guidelines For Recommending Weight Loss Surgery

Candidates for weight loss surgery should:

    Several insurance plans still follow previous Bariatric Surgery guidelines that indicated BMI of 40 or greater or BMI of 35 or greater with one or more related (co-morbid) conditions. Please call our office at (937) 208-5300 to find out if this applies to your insurance plan.

    Other important criteria we consider at Premier Weight Loss Solutions include:

    • You are motivated and committed to making life-long changes in food choices, eating habits, physical activity, and lifestyle in order to ensure successful weight loss after surgery
    • You have been unsuccessful in documented attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise
    • You are free from tobacco, drug, or alcohol addiction

    Meeting these criteria is a strong predictor for weight loss success. Each person’s candidacy is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, so depending on your physical health and other factors, you may qualify for surgery even if all of these factors don’t apply to you.

    If you and your doctor think weight loss surgery is right for you, you can proceed on the pathway to surgery.
