Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez - average cost

Average weight loss surgery cost can range from $17,000 to $30,000 in the United States. In Mexico, these same surgeries cost between $5,400 to $9,500. There is a direct correlation between the complexity of the surgery and the average price.

Options for Low-Cost Bariatric Surgery

Those that need to pay for bariatric surgery out of pocket are not left with many options. You can first look into weight loss grants. Some organizations, like WLSFA, do offer grants to those that are in need of weight loss surgery but unable to qualify for insurance.

You can also shop around to see if anyone offers discounts for self-paying weight loss patients. Although rare, some private surgeons may reduce the cost of your surgery if you are a self-paying patient. However, the discount is unlikely to be substantial, as the cost of US-based medical care remains higher than almost every other country in the world.

Affordable Bariatric Surgery for Self-Paying Patients

Rather than complete your surgery in the United States, you may want to consider medical tourism. Right across the border in Tijuana, Mexico, you can find outstanding medical services for a fraction of the price of bariatric surgery in the United States.

The quality of medical care in Mexico is excellent with the right doctors and surgeons, and for those that have to self-pay for bariatric surgery, it represents a significantly reduced investment.
