Based on my BMI, is the gastric sleeve a good option?

Tags:woman age 45-54 BMI

My BMI is 48, does that put me in a good position to get the gastric sleeve procedure? My friend was able to get the procedure with a similar BMI. Based on what I have seen online though that does not make sense. She could have been mistaken about her BMI. I am not entirely sure.

With your BMI, typically the gastric sleeve operation is not offered. Having said that, this is a question for a bariatric surgeon, not for a plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery forum.
