Is Weight Loss Surgery Right for You?
Bariatric Surgery, or Weight Loss Surgery, offers a surgical treatment option for obesity. Excess weight is a complicated issue, and weight loss is not always as simple as many people think. While aggressive diets and exercise methods may initially bring results, this weight loss is often temporary and we more often than not see unwanted excess weight creep back on.
Bariatric and metabolic surgery offers a permanent tool to help you lose excess weight by altering the way your body processes food and responds. By removing the stretchy, unnecessary outer portion of the stomach organ and rerouting the path food takes in the small intestine, we leave less space to be filled with food, limit the amount being absorbed and change how your body reacts. This also decreases the levels of the “hunger hormone” we find in the stomach. Bariatric surgery, combined with a commitment to lifestyle changes, has a proven record of long term, sustained weight loss.
How much does Surgery cost?
For patients without insurance or who wish to have surgery outside of the guidelines or timeline put forth by their insurance provider, self-pay bariatric surgery may be an option.
Our cash pay price for a sleeve gastrectomy is $8,990 including 1 year of follow-up. Self-pay pricing for a gastric bypass can vary and we invite you to contact our office to schedule your consultation to learn more about our self-pay options.
