Dr Hernan Fraga – Bariatric Surgeon

How to Determine if You Are a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

This decision depends not only on your desire to lose weight but also on a series of medical criteria and health factors that must be carefully assessed.

Determining whether you are a suitable candidate for bariatric surgery is the first step toward a healthy lifestyle change.

Health Benefits of Weight Loss

Overweight and obesity can be associated with various health conditions that negatively impact your quality of life.

The weight loss achieved through bariatric surgery offers significant benefits, including a reduction in the risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart diseases. Additionally, weight loss can improve mobility, reduce joint pain, and enhance sleep quality, among other advantages.


Factors to evaluate

Assessment of Body Mass Index and Other Factors

The body mass index (BMI) is one of the most crucial indicators to determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery. Ideal candidates have a BMI of 30 or more, that might be accompanied by weight-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes or hypertension. Moreover, your current height and weight are essential factors in this assessment, providing a clear picture of your current health status and potential risks associated with obesity.

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Hernán Fraga and his team of professionals, you can receive a detailed and personalized assessment that will help you understand the best surgery options for your specific case.

Impact of Excess Weight on Daily Life

Physical exhaustion and difficulties in maintaining a normal life are common challenges for people with significant excess weight. If you not only experience overweight but also find limitations in your daily activities, suffer from chronic fatigue, or struggle with tasks that were once simple, bariatric surgery could be a viable solution.

The importance of a personalized consultation with a specialist, such as Dr. Hernán Fraga, cannot be underestimated. During this consultation, Dr. Fraga will evaluate your case individually and recommend the most suitable method based on your specific situation.
