Qualifications for Weight Loss Surgery
We recommend weight loss surgery for adults who have a BMI at 30 or above and are committed to beginning a true weight loss journey. Most of our previous patients have attempted to lose weight through diet and exercise, but have failed.

While most people with a BMI of 30 or over qualify for weight loss surgery, Evolve does offer a non-surgical option to people with BMIs at or above 26.
