Lap Band (also referred to as Gastric Banding) costs can vary depending on which type of implant (band) is used:
Types of Bands:
Both of them are very similar in function, but their costs can vary- the second being usually slightly more pricy.
Aspects that can also influence the price of the lap band surgery are: geographical location, experience of the surgeon, hospital staff and more.
The primary difference in the prices of gastric banding is the location of the surgery. That is usually the case when US citizens decide to go to Mexico to have the obesity procedure. In the United States lap band surgery can cost $17,000 to $25,000, but in Mexico the same procedure has lower prices.
Lap band surgery prices in Mexico start at $5,000 and go as high as $9,000.
The average cost for lap band at the hospitals in Mexico usually revolve around the average value of $6,300
And I am!!! Actually I'm better! I have lost 10 dress sizes and about 60 pounds! I am smaller than I was at my senior prom! I feel great! I look great! I have more energy, I am able to exercise and have more endurance. I eat better in front of my son and am able to teach him better habits by example. I couldn’t ask for more.
Dr Maytorena and his staff were very accommodating to my mother and I. The women's hospital was very clean and comfortable. My experience with Dr. Maytorena was wonderful and I am very grateful to him for helping me change my life.
See this patient before and after Obesity Surgery Picture Testimonial. The change on her health and looks is amazing! All thanks to Mexico Bariatric Team in Mexicali, Mexico.
Dr. Maytorena saved my life! And not just by providing me the opportunity to loose weight and change my life. My husband and I had been fighting weight loss, diets, and exercise for several years. We have a son with a metabolic disorder and eating right and staying fit needs to be a big part of his life. We decided to take control and have the gastric sleeve surgery
My name is Nedra D. from Moreno Valley, USA. Since I was a child, I had problems with my weight, but in high school, I managed to lose some pounds due to the physical activities I did. When I gave birth to my first son, that’s when I started to eat excessively, thus more weight gain ensued. With my petite 5’3” frame, I am heavy at 190 lbs.
In March of 2012, we came to Mexico Bariatric Team and Dr. Arellano to have gastric sleeve surgery. The reason we both decided to have surgery is because life being overweight was hard. Going to work was hard, waking up was hard, playing with our daughter was hard. We felt we were prisoners in our own bodies.
