Doctors in Mexico who perform on lower BMI?



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

curious. Why do a weight loss surgery with such a low BMI? 25 is considered basically normal or just slightly overweight. What is your current weight and height? or is there another reason for wanting this surgery?

I can't answer that one but like @liveaboard15, I'm curious why you want surgery at 25 BMI. I think I set my goal to a BMI around 26-27.

I think the lowest I have ever heard of them doing the surgery is a 30 BMI and that’s usually if you have medical issues that make it necessary. I am not sure whether any doctor would do it for a BMI of 25.

I’ve read all through the ESG forum that there are doctors in Mexico who will perform on 25 BMI. Wondering who those doctors are if anyone would like to share

Ummmm, bmi of 25 is normal weight. I don't think anyone in the world would perform bariatric surgery on a bmi of 25.

Ok, I just checked bmi of 25 is border line overweight or slightly overweight.
Bmi of 24.9 is normal weight or healthy weight. Most of us on this app would die to be a bmi of 25, i had the sleeve in 2019 and I am a bmi of 30.5. Most places in Mexico have a minimum bmi of 30 plus a comorbidity to do surgery. I did my sleeve in Mexico, my bmi was 35 at the time of surgery. 20220731_083623.jpg

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
