The Cost of Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico

The cost of gastric sleeve surgery is a big concern for many individuals who hope to undergo the procedure. Many people often ask themselves, “how much does gastric sleeve surgery cost?”

Unfortunately, that question is more complicated to answer than you would expect. There are many factors to consider, such as whether or not you have insurance and what your health is like.

But there’s another factor to consider: where you have your surgery, and by traveling to Mexico to have your surgery, you can save up to 70% off what you’d expect to spend in the United States.

The average cost of gastric sleeve surgery ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 in the United States, whereas the cost of weight loss surgery in Mexico can range from about $6,000 to $12,000, depending on the physician, their experience and more.

Understanding All Gastric Sleeve Surgery Fees

Many companies that provide bariatric surgery let patients know only about the fees they charge for the procedure itself, leaving out hospital fees and other charges. But sometimes those fees can be thousands of dollars or more. To make sure you understand all the fees, it’s important to ask your bariatric physician a lot of questions.

You’re Also Paying For a Healthier Lifestyle

It’s important to understand gastric sleeve surgery is a complicated procedure that requires significant lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise. You should also consider those factors in order to accurately gauge the cost of undergoing gastric sleeve surgery.

Although gastric sleeve surgery can be expensive if you don’t have insurance that will pay for it, you should think about it as a tool to help you live a healthier life. Many apply the cost-versus-reward concept when talking about weight-loss surgery: do the upfront and long-term costs outweigh the long-term risks of being obese? For most the answer will be yes.

A Lot of People Go Through the Weight Loss Surgery Process
