Weight loss surgery should be seen as a long-term investment to a happier, healthier lifestyle. Studies show that most people could “break even” within 2 to 4 years of their procedure and start saving $11,000 per year after that.

Savings include:

  • Reduced medical costs – each year obese individuals spend 42% more on medical expenses than normal weight individuals1
  • Reduced prescription costs – seriously overweight people spend over $700 a year on out-of-pocket prescription costs2
  • Less spend on food – it’s estimated an obese person spends $6,100 annually on groceries and dining out

If you have any questions regarding bariatric surgery, give us a call at 214-396-1547 and one of our patient care coordinators will guide you.
