Stop Wasting Money.
Start Investing in Your Health.

Millions of dollars are wasted every year on failed weight-loss programs. Promises made go undelivered.
The Lap-Band Program changes the cost equation.

Investing in the Lap‑Band Program is a true investment in yourself. The Lap‑Band Program’s cost is small compared to the benefits you will realize from your sustained weight loss. A study at George Washington University found that the average annual price of obesity is $2,646 for men and $4,879 for women.1 Over just a decade, that adds up to between $26,000 and $49,000 in avoidable, weight-related spending. In the course of a lifetime, the dollars easily top a quarter million.
With the help of the Lap‑Band Program, you can lower your risk and the possibility of an avoidable hospitalization, and you can improve or even reverse chronic conditions. 73% of all Lap‑Band Patients reported remission of their Type II Diabetes due to their weight loss after two years on the program.2

Is The Lap‑Band Affordable?

Finances should never stand in the way of your health. Lap‑Band Surgeons understand how important it is to achieve your weight-loss goals and maintain your overall well-being. That’s why affordable Lap‑Band financing and payment options are available. Most insurance companies cover the Lap‑Band Program cost. You can speak with your insurance provider or Lap‑Band Surgeon to further explore your options and Lap-Band Program pricing.

The Lap‑Band
Program’s Cost

The Lap‑Band Program’s price varies across weight-loss clinics, regions, and insurance carriers based on factors such as demand, coverage, and location. Your insurance company may help cover the cost of bariatric procedures, including the Lap-Band. Speaking to a Lap‑Band Surgeon can give you a better idea of the costs, insurance coverage, and financing options that are available to you.

The Price of Success with Lap‑Band

Less Invasive Procedure

Because the Lap-Band Procedure is minimally invasive and performed laparoscopically, recovery is faster and less complicated than other more invasive bariatric surgeries. The Lap-Band Program cost reflects the lowered risk enabled by this surgical approach.

Minimally Disruptive

When thinking about the Lap-Band Program price, patients often forget to factor in recovery time. Being away from work for weeks on end can be costly. The Lap-Band Procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis, and the surgery itself typically takes less than an hour. When the procedure is performed in an inpatient setting, the hospital stay is generally less than one day. In most cases, you’ll get back to your life in less than 14 days.

Supportive Aftercare Program

A weight-loss program is only valuable if it works. The Lap-Band Program is more than a surgery; it is a complete journey. We will provide you with ongoing aftercare that includes expert guidance from a highly trained team of Lap-Band Specialists who will help ensure lasting results.

Better Health

To say that your health is invaluable is an understatement. The Lap-Band Program cost isn’t about the one-time surgical expense. We are in this to ensure that you sustain your weight loss and realize the lasting, overwhelming benefits that come with a renewed sense of self.

Valuable Results

Hard work pays off, so after all your dedication and effort, you deserve to enjoy your weight-loss results for years to come. The Lap-Band Program, its price, and its value align to one objective: to help you achieve long-term results. Unlike quick-fix diets and temporary cosmetic procedures, you can take pride in your weight-loss results and improved confidence. You earned it.

Important Lap-Band® System Safety Information

The Lap-Band System is indicated for weight reduction for patients with obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 kg/m2 or a BMI of at least 30 kg/m2 with one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions. It is indicated for use only in adult patients who have failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives, such as supervised diet, exercise and behavior modification programs. Patients who elect to have this surgery must make the commitment to accept significant changes in their eating habits for the rest of their lives.

The Lap-Band System is not recommended for non-adult patients, patients with conditions that may make them poor surgical candidates or increase the risk of poor results, who are unwilling or unable to comply with the required dietary restrictions, or who currently are or may be pregnant.

The Lap-Band System is a long-term implant. Explant and replacement surgery may be required. Patients who become pregnant or severely ill, or who require more extensive nutrition may require deflation of their bands. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin, should be used with caution and may contribute to an increased risk of band erosion.

Placement of the Lap-Band System is major surgery and, as with any surgery, death can occur. Possible complications include the risks associated with the medications and methods used during surgery, the risks associated with any surgical procedure, and the patient’s ability to tolerate a foreign object implanted in the body. Most common related adverse events include: Band slippage, pouch dilation, stoma obstruction, gastroesophageal reflux, esophageal dilation, cholelithiasis, incisional infection, abdominal pain, gastroenteritis, or nausea and vomiting may occur. Reoperation may be required. Rapid weight loss may result in complications that may require additional surgery. Deflation of the band may alleviate excessively rapid weight loss or esophageal dilation.
