Benefits of Self-Paying for Weight Loss Surgery

Advanced bariatric procedures — including gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, and duodenal switch — have proven to be highly effective in helping patients take control of their weight and achieve a healthier lifestyle. While our North Dallas weight loss practice makes it a priority to make bariatric surgery as affordable as possible, it’s often a patient’s first instinct to try and obtain full or partial coverage from their insurance provider. This can work nicely for some patients, but others may find that self-paying for weight loss surgery is the best course of action.

If you have any questions about bariatric surgery insurance and financing options, Dr. Bagshahi and our team would be happy to give you a better understanding of the payment process. We accept payment plans from leading healthcare lending companies such as CareCredit®, Prosper® Healthcare Lending, and United Medical Credit®, which can each allow qualified patients to pay for their bariatric procedure over time in smaller installments.

At Bagshahi Bariatric and General Surgery, our team strives to make the process of paying for your weight loss surgery as easy, convenient, and seamless as possible. If you have questions about the cost of bariatric surgery or our accepted payment methods, please don’t hesitate to contact our DFW office to speak to our friendly and knowledgeable team.
