What Does Weight Loss Surgery Cost?
The costs of having weight loss surgery are made up of a number of sources:

Am I A Good Candidate For Weight Loss Surgery?
Guidelines for obesity surgery are fairly rigid. They are established by obesity surgical societies (OSSANZ and IFSO) and government bodies (National Institutes of Health) to ensure the safety and efficacy of the operations.
You may be a candidate if:
- You are more than 40kg above your ideal weight
- Your BMI is above 40kg/m2 or,
- Your BMI is above 35 and you have a medical condition associated with obesity (co-morbidity)
