According to BMI charts, a value of 33 is considered obese. Although a weight loss procedure is not your only option you may take this into consideration, several options are available in the case that you:
Each person’s body is unique and may have different caloric needs. When your body’s caloric balance status is in caloric excess, it means that you are eating more calories than your body is using and you will store these excess calories as fat. Besides diet and behavior, the environment and genetic factors may also have a significant effect in causing people to be overweight or obese. It is important to understand the risks you are facing if you do not take any measures to lose weight.
Overweight and obese individuals are at increased risk for many diseases and health conditions, including the following:
- High LDL
- Low HDL
- High levels
If you are seriously overweight, have tried dieting and exercise but you fail to lose weight, weight loss surgery is a viable option to consider. If your weight is impacting the quality of your life, bariatric surgery can help you regain control of your life and improve your health.

Lap Band Procedure For a BMI 33
Although lap band procedure is recommended for BMI over 35, it can also be done for overweight patients whose BMI is between 25 and 30. The Lap Band is an adjustable gastric banding system, which is attached to the upper part of the stomach, drastically limiting stomach capacity. The weight loss surgery costs will range from $7,000 to $23.000.
The lap band system has proven to provide significant short-term weight loss within the first 1-2 years of use and has shown to improve or resolve several serious obesity-related comorbid conditions (sleep apnea, asthma, diabetes, hypertension). Although lap band surgery is completely reversible, you should consider the lap band a lifelong commitment. Removal should only be considered if serious complications develop.More About The Lap Band Procedure »
Gastric Plication Procedure For a BMI 33
Gastric plication is a restrictive procedure that reduces the size of the stomach and limits food intake. It can be combined with the lap band for initial weight loss. During the procedure, stomach volume is reduced by folding in the stomach wall and stitching the stomach in order to secure the folded stomach wall. Although new, this procedure has shown encouraging results.
Gastric plication takes about 1-2 hours to complete and is recommended for overweight patients with a BMI of 25 and over, with obesity-related comorbidities. Patients can expect to lose between 40% to 70% of their excess weight in the first year after surgery. However, they need to follow a diet and regularly exercise in order to maintain their weight. Obesity-related comorbidities improve or resolve after gastric plication.More About The Gastric Plication Procedure »
Gastric Sleeve Procedure For a BMI 33
If your BMI is between 25 and 30, it means that you are overweight and are a possible candidate for the gastric sleeve procedure. Also called a sleeve gastrectomy, the surgery is performed using laparoscopy meaning that there will only be a few small incisions through which the doctor performs the procedure. Laparoscopic technique allows for quicker recovery and less patient discomfort, to name a few advantages.
Results depend on the commitment of each patient, who must be willing to adopt a sensible eating plan and reasonable routine activity. As a restrictive procedure, the sleeve gastrectomy will limit the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach and making you feel full quicker. The stomach during the gastric sleeve procedure is reduced to about 25% of its original size.More The About Gastric Sleeve Procedure »
