Weight Loss Surgery: Can You Afford to Live Without it?
Metabolic or bariatric surgery can truly be a life-changing procedure, enabling aggressive weight loss and radically improving your overall health. Unfortunately, though, surgery is expensive: regardless of the specific procedure you choose, weight loss surgery is technically complex, requiring a skilled team of highly-trained, experienced surgical and medical practitioners and demanding a rigorous routine of pre- and post-operative care. But you probably already realize that the costs of living with obesity and the health-related problems it creates are equally high: life-long medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes; regular visits to your primary care physician and medical specialists; regular blood work and other screenings; participation in weight loss programs like Weight Watchers; even lost productivity due to sickness, doctor’s visits, and depression. When you consider the fact that metabolic surgery offers immediate weight loss and resolution of many health problems that involve these and other significant costs, the long-term cost benefit of weight loss surgery seems clear!
Yet even once you have made the decision to move forward with your surgical procedure, you may still be left with nagging doubts about whether you can afford it. We believe the answer to that question should always be: YES, I CAN! Beltre Bariatrics Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery in Maitland, Florida is just as eager to help you understand your financing options as we are to help you understand your surgical and medical options, and just as we will walk you through the surgical process, one step at a time, we will also walk you through the financing process, just as carefully and meticulously. Whether you have the best insurance coverage or none at all, we will help you understand exactly what your procedure will cost, explain the different financing mechanisms available to you, and work with you to navigate the paperwork required for any necessary approvals.
