Gastric Bypass Cost

Gastric bypass is one of the most popular bariatric procedures available, though it costs more than gastric sleeve surgery.

Thanks to the exchange rate in Mexico, American patients who come to Vision Bariatrics can save thousands of dollars.

Learn how much you can save by visiting our experienced team of bariatric surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico.

How Much Is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

At Vision Bariatrics, the average cost of gastric bypass surgery is $4,999. This price covers the procedure itself as well as a number of expenses related to surgery.

The price of this bariatric surgery package includes pre-op lab work, four days and three nights in the hospital, doctor and facility fees, ground transportation, and a nutrition consultation.

Is Gastric Bypass Covered by Insurance?


Like other weight loss procedures, gastric bypass surgery is usually covered by insurance. Coverage by insurance companies can vary, so it's important that you contact your provider directly. The team at our Tijuana, Mexico, surgical center can assist with paperwork and other documentation you may need.

Savings From Medical Tourism Comparing Prices on Both Sides of the Border

A dollar goes further in Mexico than it does in the United States. This simple fact about currency across the border has fueled an interest in medical tourism. Vision Bariatrics attracts many patients from America and around the world who want to save money on weight loss surgery.

Immense Cost-Savings From Medical Tourism

As we mentioned on our blog last year, the cost of bariatric surgery in America is typically between $20,000 to $25,000. If you come to Vision Bariatrics for gastric bypass surgery, you can save more than $14,000 on the procedure.

Work Performed by Qualified Bariatric Surgeons

There is an unfortunate assumption that getting medical treatment abroad means poor facilities and unqualified surgeons. Vision Bariatrics is a state-of-the-art facility. Our board-certified bariatric surgeons are committed to providing quality care.

Safe and Effective Weight Loss Surgery

Over the years, Vision Bariatrics has helped countless patients from other countries lose weight and overcome obesity-related comorbidities. Our secure campus looks and feels more like a luxury spa, allowing you to heal in privacy.

Gastric Bypass vs. Other Weight Loss Surgeries A Bariatric Procedure Price Comparison

A gastric bypass isn't the only weight loss option we offer. Patients can also undergo gastric sleeve and mini gastric bypass surgery. Let's compare the cost of these procedures at Vision Bariatrics.

Gastric Sleeve

Mini Gastric Bypass

Financing Options Masking Gastric Bypass More Affordable

Even though $4,999 is a considerable savings compared to the United States, it can still be a financial burden to patients who want to do something about their obesity.

The team at Vision Bariatrics tries to make weight loss surgery as affordable as possible, which is why we accept Visa, Master Card, and American Express and has third-party financing through United Medical Credit. We can work with you to find an affordable and effective solution that fits your budget.

Is Gastric Bypass Worth the Cost?

Many patients wonder if gastric bypass costs are worth it, even with the savings from medical tourism. Our bariatric surgeons feel that the health benefits justify the price tag. Think of bypass surgery as an investment in your future.

The post-op results can be dramatic, with significant weight loss, reduction of your body mass index (BMI), and treatment for obesity comorbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The long-term savings on additional medical care can be immense.

If you're wondering if gastric bypass surgery will be cost-effective, we can discuss this in more detail during a consultation.
