Weight Loss Surgery - The Benefits and Financial Cost

By Beverley Brooke

Generally, weight loss surgery such as the gastric bypass will cost between $20,000 to $30,000 - the clinics do make substantial profits, which is why some you see advertised offer free chauffeurs and even airplane flights to the city and clinic. As in all lines of "business", some surgeries will do all it takes to coax you there, within the law of course.

If you've opted for weight loss surgery, the cost of such a procedure can be quite daunting. Many people simply can't afford the surgery without taking out huge loans which could end up crippling them financially. Is the surgery really worth the cost?

As with all major decisions in a person's life, the benefits must be matched and compared with the cost, whether that's emotionally, physically or financially. With weight loss surgery costing so much, it's critical that the reasons you're opting for the surgery are thought through extremely thorough, and in most cases discussed with your doctor.

If for example you're suffering from a number of ailments and conditions because of morbid obesity, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, respiratory problems etc, and with the immediate health concerns morbid obesity brings - possible early death, up to 7 times the risk of death from a heart attack and all the added problems that come with it just trying to operate in society alone, you may feel the cost simply isn't an issue, but you must work it into your current and future finances.
