Gastric Sleeve Cost

Gastric sleeve (sleeve gastrectomy) is an effective weight loss surgery, yet patients often worry about the cost.

Vision Bariatrics makes the procedure more affordable thanks to the exchange rate and financing options.

Learn how you can take advantage of savings by visiting our weight loss surgery center in Tijuana, Mexico.

How Much Does Gastric Sleeve Cost?

At Vision Bariatrics, the average cost of gastric sleeve surgery is $3,999. This price covers the sleeve gastrectomy as well as your time at our facility.

The above price includes a four-day and three-night stay at Vision Bariatrics, pre-op lab work, surgeon and facility fees, ground transportation, and nutritional counseling.

Is Gastric Sleeve Covered by Insurance?


Yes. Gastric sleeve surgery is typically covered by your health insurance. Since policies and coverage can vary, be sure to contact your insurance provider directly. Our team can assist with any documentation your insurance company may need.

Save Money on Gastric Sleeve Surgery How Coming to Vision Bariatrics Can Benefit You

Medical Tourism Means Savings

In the United States, the average cost of gastric sleeve surgery is $9,325, but it can be higher at some practices. Vision Bariatrics attracts many patients from across the border since the exchange rate in Mexico translates into thousands of dollars worth in savings.

Safe and Effective Bariatric Surgery

At Vision Bariatrics, you can save money on weight loss surgery without compromising your sense of safety or the quality of your procedure. Our bariatric surgeons are board-certified, and our surgical facilities and equipment are state of the art.

A Stay That Feels More Like a Vacation

Thanks to the atmosphere and amenities at Vision Bariatrics, getting a gastric sleeve can feel more like a getaway. You aren't just paying less for bariatric surgery by coming to us. You're also giving your body a chance to heal in a soothing and calming setting.

Gastric Sleeve vs. the Cost of Other Procedures

Vision Bariatrics offers other bariatric procedures for people who are not good candidates for sleeve gastrectomy or have different needs. Let's compare the cost of two other surgeries performed at our center.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Vision Bariatrics charges $4,999 for gastric bypass surgery. It's a more complicated procedure than a gastric sleeve but may be ideal for your health goals.

Mini Gastric Bypass

Vision Bariatrics charges $4,999 for mini gastric bypass. Similar to a traditional gastric bypass, the surgery is still more involved than a gastric sleeve procedure.

Financing Options Making Gastric Sleeve Surgery Affordable

If you do not have insurance coverage or need help covering the out-of-pocket cost of surgery, Vision Bariatrics accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, and American Express®. In addition to those credit cards, we also offer third-party financing through United Medical Credit.

Financing options can divide your bariatric surgery cost into affordable installments. Paying monthly can help ease the financial burden on your household so you can still experience the benefits of a gastric sleeve.

Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Worth the Price?

Many patients ask us if gastric sleeve surgery costs are justified by the benefits. We definitely feel that is the case, given how weight loss can improve your overall quality of life and potentially increase your life expectancy.

For one, weight loss can help remedy obesity-related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypertension. A life-changing surgery can also help prevent severe arthritis later in life.

If you still have questions about gastric sleeve surgery, its long-term results, and if it's right for you, we can provide the answers you're looking for during a consultation.

I was referred to Dr Camelo by my Brother. I have struggled with me weight all my life and I needed a change for my health. Salma the Coordinator was very Helpful, good communication and helped the process flow easy. The Hospital is top notch. All the staff was wonderful and the plus was being able to have my Husband stay with me during my stay. My Husband used Uber eats for his meals, they deliver to hospital. Dr Camelo was very professional and explained the procedure prior to surgery. I highly recommend Dr Camelo. I feel great and I am very satisfied with my decision for the sleeve. Very positive experience .
