Body Mass Index Calculator

Patients are required to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 37 before tubal reversal surgery and less than 45 before vasectomy reversal surgery. This policy is for optimal patient safety when undergoing elective outpatient surgery.

BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a calculation based on height and weight that correlates with the amount of body fat. Calculating your BMI will tell you if you are at a healthy weight. Enter your height and weight in this BMI calculator to determine your body mass index.

ft
in
lbs
cm
kg

Is your BMI over 37 (women) or over 45 (men)?

If your body mass index is higher than our maximal limits for surgery, we recommend progressive weight loss through diet combined with regular exercise such as walking daily. Fasting, limiting fluid intake, or using diuretics to lose weight immediately before surgery should be avoided to minimize the risks of surgery and anesthesia.

It is essential that you provide accurate information regarding your height and weight when scheduling surgery and during your anesthesia consultation. Providing inaccurate information about your height and weight, past surgery, or medical conditions may result in your procedure being rescheduled or cancelled.

Hi I’m looking to get a tubal reversal done very soon. I had the parkland method done. How much would it be for the reversal?

    Currently the total cost for tubal reversal is $6,900 plus $150 to schedule. All you are responsible for is the cost of travel, food, and hotel.

    We should be able to help you. We can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

    The first step to see if you are a candidate is to send us your tubal ligation reports to us for a free review and we can let you know if you are a candidate for reversal surgery.

    Your reports can be obtained from the medical records department where your tubal ligation surgery was performed.

    We charge $6,900 total plus $150 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Patients pay in full and out-of-pocket at the time of scheduling. All you have to pay for in addition to the surgical fee is the cost of travel, hotel, and food.

    On average the chance of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal is about 60% if you are under age 42.

    We do have a prepayment tubal reversal plan that allows you to save towards your reversal over a 3 year period.

    Although $6,900 seems expensive…the alternative treatment in-vitro fertilization (IVF) average $12,000 to $14,000 and is about 40% successful!

    The main advantage to tubal reversal is that every month you have a chance and you can become pregnant more than once.

    The following link will answer most of your questions about reversal. This is the MOST HELPFUL INFORMATION to read when considering reversal at our office. Each question has a link to more information about the question:

IVE HAS TWO C SECTIONS AND BMI AT 42 DOES THAT AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFY ME FOR THE REVERSAL

    Until your BMI is less than 37 you cannot have surgery at our center.

    We require your BMI to be less than 37 to have surgery at our center. Your BMI is officially calculated on the day of your surgical consultation.

    We do not charge patients based on BMI.

    You can check your BMI with our BMI calculator here: BMI Calculator
