Bariatric Weight-loss surgery is available on the NHS UK to those who are morbidly obese with a body mass index (BMI) of over 40 — or to those who have a BMI of 35 to 40, but whose weight is causing a serious health issue such as type 2 diabetes.

Weight loss surgery is gaining popularity despite being dangerous simply because of the misleading publicity by the obesity surgeons and associated drug industry in the media and unfortunately people are following in masses for dangerous procedures to lose weight instead of looking for simple, safe and free solution."
