The cost of lap band surgery

There is not a single person trying to lose weight who hasn’t tried a diet. Think of all the diets out there; it seems like there are a million diets. Why is that? Well in the long run, none of them work. All of the different diet plans make grand promises and show off their individual success stories, and then they have that small disclaimer that reads “results may vary.”

The vast majority of diets have never been studied scientifically and you can’t get reliable reports on long term results. What none of the diet programs tell you is that when they are studied scientifically they generally show poor results. Let’s take a look at some dietary interventions that were studied carefully as reported in scientific medical journals. There have been recent reviews of diet programs in the The New England Journal of Medicine, widely recognized as the most influential scientific medical journal in the United States, and in the Journal of the American Medical Association, another widely respected medical journal. One study, published in 2008 in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that subjects trying three different dietary regimens lost on average between 7 – 12 lbs in 2 years! This is a very modest weight loss.

Lap Band financing

If your insurance company does not cover weight loss surgery and you will find yourself financing it to pay for Lap Band surgery out-of-pocket. Also, many patients who have excessive insurance requirements for weight loss surgery, such as a delay of many months or even a year or longer, find that they prefer to make the investment in their own health and pay for bariatric surgery rather than suffer from the health effects of obesity.

You should know that there are potentially many advantages to financing your own weight loss surgery.
