Would you recommend weight loss surgery?

That is the question posed at DB' Medical Rants:

Yesterday I did something that I rarely do - I recommended bariatric surgery.
What criteria do you use for bariatric referral? I do not remember that last time I had this particular conversation.

I have a similar question. If you have had weight loss surgery and are at least 2+ years out, would you do it in hindsight? The 2+ years is to allow for fading of the “honeymoon” phase.
As for the Bobblehead, yes, I would. Life has not been a picnic, of course.
