How overweight do you have to be to have a gastric band. I thought about it today and i could get one but if i'm loosing weight then theres no point. I'm only 19 so i'm still young. So i was just wondering

    Depends - I am assuming you mean on the NHS? You would have to go ans speak to your GP.

    In my opinion having an operation to control your weight should be a very last option. You have to learn to control what you eat even if you have the operation so you would be better off getting to grips with that before even considering having an operation.
