Lap Band Will Pay for Itself!
One of the factors that must be considered when investigating JSAPA Weight Loss Surgery is its cost. The lap band procedure can cost as much as $16,000 or more. How much of this cost is out of pocket will depend on insurance coverage and other factors. But, the good news is that lap band surgery can pay for itself in as little as two years.
A recent study indicated that, in people who have type 2 diabetes, lap band surgery will pay for itself in two years. In people who do not have diabetes, the pay-off takes about 4 years. Studies have shown that lap band surgery can reverse type 2 diabetes in 60% of those who have the procedure. Savings on medication, testing and medical costs over the two years after bariatric surgery can equal or exceed the cost of the surgery. Even in those who did not have diabetes prior to surgery, there was a decrease in medical costs in the years after bariatric surgery.
If you are one of the thousands of people in the Jacksonville area who have been wondering for years how to lose weight, lap band surgery may be an option for you. It is not a magic bullet; you will still need to make significant lifestyle changes. However, the surgery makes it easier to stick to new dietary regimens simply because it is impossible to eat more than a small amount at once. By limiting yourself to the healthy foods recommended by your doctor and increasing your level of physical activity, you can finally lose your extra weight and also improve your health, and for many people at little to no cost overtime!
