People who want to know more about their BMI in Los Angeles will find answers to all their questions here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, a leading provider of bariatric surgery in Los Angeles. Here is some vital information for anyone wanting to learn more about BMI in Los Angeles: BMI stands for Body Mass Index, which technically is a person’s body mass divided by the square of his or her height. It is NOT a measurement of body fat percentage. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 indicates optimal body weight. Less than 18.5 indicates a person is underweight. A BMI of 24.9 or higher is overweight, 30 or higher is obese, and 40 or higher is morbidly obese. If you have a BMI of 40 or higher, or you have a BMI of 35 or higher in addition to one or more co-morbidities (like hypertension or diabetes), you may be a good candidate for Lap Band surgery in Los Angeles, alongside other surgical techniques.
Exactly what kind of treatment you may be a good candidate depends on more than just your BMI, and our team of skilled and experienced medical professionals here at Dr. Feiz & Associates will sit down with you and, after speaking with you and studying your medical history, offer suggestions on your best options. These may range from surgical treatments such as gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and Lap Band in Los Angeles, to non-surgical treatments.
