      Hello Stephanie, you are just over a BMI of 30 at about 31.6 which does qualify you for bariatric surgery. What I would recommend is giving us a call and speaking to a patient coordinator for further questions. I will have one of them email you and you are welcome to call us at 855-768-7247 or fill out a quick pre-screen and we will contact you.
