Summary  Severe obesity rates have doubled during the last twenty years, particularly in disadvantaged Australians. Paradoxically, disadvantaged Australians are the least likely group to receive treatment using bariatric surgery. Health care costs for individuals with severe obesity are double the population average. These costs are decreased after bariatric surgery, particularly in individuals with diabetes.
