How much do you have to weigh to get a gastric band?

Gastric band patients need to be obese to be qualified for the surgery. Obesity is measured by BMI indicator, which takes into consideration both weight and height. So, the weight itself does not matter, it is rather the BMI category that is important. Some patients weighing 80 kilograms are qualified for gastric band, while others may weigh 150 kg and also have a gastric band.
