Yes you come under Obese category with BMI 30. The recommendations of liposuction or Gastric by pass surgery are at BMI 34 or with BMI 32 with atleast two complications of Obesity like Arthritis, Sleep apnoea etc. You have to consult the doctor and take his/her advice. The cost for this procedure depends upon the type of hospital you choose and the bariatric surgeon. We can help you in arranging an appointment with a Bariatric surgeon. Right now our recommendations would be Dietary regulation, Graded exercises and Behavioural modifications with realistic goals to be set.
