Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator

Measurement scale reading someone’s BMI

See if your BMI is high enough to qualify for weight loss surgery or our medically supervised clinical weight loss program.

BMI does not differentiate between body fat and muscle mass. Therefore, body builders and people who have a lot of muscle bulk will have a high BMI but are not necessarily overweight or obese.

People with a BMI greater than 30 or 35 might be considered candidates for weight loss surgery. For lower BMIs, our medically supervised weight loss program is another great option to consider.

Use our BMI calculator below to if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.
