An advanced and innovative weight loss procedure such as bariatric surgery is designed to enable a patient shed a substantial amount of excess body weight and in the process, improve their overall health and fitness. Over the years, this surgery has become increasingly popular in the United States due to its high success rates and fairly predictable and sustainable results.
However, one of the prohibitive factors for some patients is the relatively high cost of a bariatric weight loss procedure. This hurdle can be addressed through effective insurance approval and financing solutions. Dr. Wiljon Beltre is a leading bariatric surgeon providing state of the art weight loss surgeries to patients in Altamonte Springs, Orlando, Tampa, Central Florida, and other communities in the region.
Long Term Cost-Effectiveness
In the long run, bariatric surgery anyway proves to be an affordable and cost-effective procedure in most cases. The procedure not only helps reduce obesity and the health-related problems that typically accompany it, but also automatically brings down the potential costs associated with such conditions. For instance, the life-long costs of medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes can be reduced.
The costs of regular visits to the primary care physician and medical specialists, regular blood work and other tests, participation in medical or professional weight loss programs, and even loss of productivity due to sickness will be reduced overall in the long run. In perspective, bariatric surgery becomes an affordable procedure anywhere in the US over a period of time.
