What Obesity Costs You.
With today’s rising health costs, you might be wondering whether you can afford the LAP-BAND® System. Here’s something else you should consider: extra weight often means extra costs.
In a 2010 Australian study, an overweight or obese person (according to BMI and waist-circumference definitions of overweight and obese) spent an additional $1374 annually in direct health care costs vs. a normal weight person.1
So, acting now to significantly reduce your weight may also reduce your weight-related costs over your entire lifetime. Choosing the LAP-BAND® System could actually significantly decrease your weight-related costs.
Then ask yourself what your confidence and ability to enjoy physical, social, and family activities is worth. All in all, the net benefit of healthy, sustained weight loss and improved health is priceless.
