This is placed against a scale known as a BMI (Body Mass Index). Those patients who are candidates for surgery need to have a BMI of at least 40. However, there are cases where the patient has suffered a life-threatening illness (such as a cardio-pulmonary incident) and are allowed the surgical procedure if they have a BMI of 35 or above.
Since medical issues can be extensive and the surgery, itself, has risks associated with it, potential surgery candidates must undergo counseling and be screened thoroughly prior to the surgical procedure.
