Weight Loss Surgery Costs

Weight loss surgery has the reputation of being very expensive and is often incorrectly understood as a cosmetic procedure. However, losing weight in the long term is lifesaving. The costs for any weight loss surgery should therefore be affordable. Some other weight loss programs quote 3 times more than we do. We think this is not necessary to provide good medicine.

You will be provided with a written quote after your consultation, which is a single payment for your operation.

This includes:
• Surgeons fees
• In-hospital visits
• Assistant fees
• Follow-up after the operation
