Weight Loss and Body mass index (BMI) Calculator and Estimates for Surgical Procedures
Dr. Belsley uses this calculator during his office consultation to help provide information regarding diet, nutrition and estimates for surgical weight loss.
Although these estimates are consistent with accepted norms in the surgical literature, nothing is guaranteed nor implied with you using this calculator. A small part of the equation is the actual operation. You must be committed to diet, exercise and life-change if you wish to have a lasting result.
Body mass index (BMI) is an estimate of unhealthy body weight based on height and weight that applies to both men and women.
Your doctor can talk to you about your BMI, waist measurement, and risk factors. Even a small weight loss (just 10 percent of your current weight) will help to lower your risk of developing diseases associated with obesity .
