Costs of Weight loss surgery
Like many other forms of surgery obesity surgery can be expensive. If you are considering private treatment then you will find that prices of weight loss surgery vary from one clinic to another. For those patients looking to be treated on the NHS then the same situation applies here. Prices for the following weight loss surgery procedures are (note: these are estimates only):
- Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y). Mini bypass is a less complex procedure and will be cheaper. This can cost from £8,000 up to £15,000.
- Gastric Banding (LAP-BAND, Realize and Easy bands)
This can cost from £5,000 to £9,000.
- Biliopancreatic diversion (with or without duodenal switch)
This can cost around £10,000.
- Sleeve gastrectomy (with or without duodenal switch)
This can cost from £8,000 to £10,000.
If you are looking at having cosmetic surgery at a later date, then depending on the procedure, you could be looking at £5,000 or more. If you choose a private hospital or clinic then they will have their own finance scheme such as medical loans. These are very similar to a personal loan and subject to requirements, can be arranged very quickly.
Another option is to apply for a personal loan from your bank or another lender. What ever the choice the cost of weight loss surgery is significant and it may be worth comparing prices of weight loss surgery in different clinics before going ahead with treatment.
