Your BMI is 53
Your BMI of 53 places you into the extremely obese category and you should consider a weight loss program. Your body weight exposes you to increased risks of obesity related co-morbidities. Adopt healthy eating habits and start regular exercise. If you already suffer from obesity-related health conditions, and diet or exercise has not proven effictive, consider the available bariatric options and try to find the one that is best suited for your specific needs and goals.
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.

Gastric Plication Procedure For a BMI 53
You may be a candidate for gastric plication if you have a BMI greater than 35 with one or more obesity-related conditions (diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure). You may also be a candidate for this procedure if you have a BMI of 40 or more, even without the presence of any obesity-related diseases.

By reducing the size of the stomach’s capacity to approximately 3 ounces, the patient is able to lose up to 70% of the excess weight and the diseases associated with morbid obesity will mainly resolve.More About The Gastric Plication Procedure »
Gastric Sleeve Procedure For a BMI 53
Morbidly obese patients with a BMI of 40 and over are ideal candidates for sleeve gastrectomy. The total excess body weight patients will lose in time after the procedure is approximately 66%. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch, which will limit the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. Patients will feel full sooner and stay full longer. The body will stop storing excess calories and will start using its fat supply for energy.
The gastric sleeve does not significantly affect normal digestion and absorption, as food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order. The procedure requires commitment in the long run and the advantages of gastric sleeve surgery make every effort count. It is highly important to keep appointments with the medical team, follow the recommended eating plan and be physically active in order to reach your weight goal and avoid adding weight back.More About The Gastric Sleeve Procedure »
