Ideal Weight Chart

"Ideal" body weight is a target weight derived from your height and gender. The following is a chart that you can use to estimate your "ideal" body weight range.

There are a variety of requirements to be eligible for bariatric surgery. One requirement is you would need to be about 100 pounds overweight.

  • Your post-surgery goal weight will be determined by your bariatric health care team.
  • Most patients achieve weight loss in the range of 50-80% of their excess weight after surgery.
  • The weights listed in this table are not goal weights for patients undergoing bariatric surgery.

For example, if a woman is 5’4” and weighs 320 pounds, her “ideal weight” could be between 108-132 pounds. She is approximately 200 pounds above her ideal weight and could lose 100 pounds or more with weight loss surgery.
