In this section you can find information and support that will give you a good idea of what the LAP-BAND® System might cost, as well as your financing options.

Having the LAP-BAND® System procedure outside of the U.S.
Long-term success with the LAP-BAND® System requires follow-up and support from a bariatric practice—something that a doctor in another country may not be able to provide. Regular care and follow-up with a qualified surgeon close to home is important for losing the most weight with your LAP-BAND® System. Contact a local LAP-BAND® System Specialist to learn more about your insurance coverage and financing options.
Please note that the latest version of the LAP-BAND® System is not available in Mexico.
