Private Hysterectomy Canada: Age and BMI

The decision to perform a private hysterectomy is typically based on medical indications rather than specific age or BMI (Body Mass Index) requirements. However, age and BMI can play a huge role in the overall assessment of a person’s health and suitability for surgery.

Age

Age alone is not a strict determinant for a hysterectomy. The decision to undergo a hysterectomy is usually based on medical conditions such as gynecological disorders, cancers, or other health issues. In some cases, younger individuals may need a hysterectomy due to medical necessity, while older individuals may opt for the procedure for different reasons. The appropriateness of the surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis by the healthcare provider.

However, in general, if a private hysterectomy is elective and there are few supporting reasons to have it done, it will be very challenging to find a doctor who will do the surgery for ages below 35. Health Vantis is usually able to help those seeking a private hysterectomy ages 35 and over, with just a few exceptions where younger women had supporting reasons to have it done a bit earlier, age 30 and over.

BMI

BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. While there isn’t a specific BMI cutoff for a hysterectomy, individuals with higher BMI may face additional challenges during surgery and recovery. High BMI can increase the risk of complications such as infection, wound healing issues, and respiratory problems. Healthcare providers may assess BMI as part of the overall evaluation to determine the potential risks and benefits of the surgery.

Health Vantis can arrange a private hysterectomy with BMI that is higher and indicates obesity. These hysterectomies will be done at a hospital in the US. They are priced higher because of the risks of complications that can only be mitigated at a hospital.

If you are considering a private hysterectomy and are unsure about the above indicators, the best thing to do is to discuss it with your GYN or family doctor. Health Vantis can assist in arranging a private consultation with a GYN in person. Travel is required for anyone inquiring unless you reside in Montreal, Quebec.
