Gastric Band Surgery (Lap-Band®) Costs

How Much Can You Save?

When you decide you want to go through a weight-loss surgery, the actual lap band cost might be more than you expect. In the United States, a weight-loss patient will pay around $21,000, on average, for this type of surgery. Many cannot afford this and insurance usually won’t cover any of the cost associated with the surgery. Choosing another route can save you up to 75% of the cost and Angeles Health can help. With our all-inclusive treatment, you can eliminate most of the lap band surgery cost and start your journey to a healthier life.

World-Class Care from $4,800

We assign every patient undergoing a lap band procedure a Travel Coordinator to ensure all the best arrangements are made for the patient and a companion. You will receive a full itinerary and detailed instructions to ensure you know exactly what to expect through your entire trip.

Additional Information

Patients will need to book a 10-night stay in a hotel after the surgery, which is not included in the lap band costs. These extra nights are needed before the surgeon can releases you for post-surgery travel. Many area hotels work with the Angeles Health Network to provide discounted rates for traveling medical patients.

If you want to stay in the hospital, free of charge, the night before your surgery, you can if you arrive after 6:00pm. After you check into your hotel, however, you must stay on the hotel premises.

You gain many bonuses when becoming a patient with Angeles Health. All patients receive special rates for follow up procedures to remove excess skin or stubborn fat pockets. Often times when you lose a large amount of weight you will notice excess skin and getting this removed will help you gain the healthy body you want. All patients that refer a new patient to us also receive a referral bonus, which can be used just like cash towards the cost of any future cosmetic or medical procedure.
