Weighing the Costs of Bariatric Surgery
Choosing to undergo weight loss surgery is a huge decision that should be thoroughly researched and given expert opinion. There are mental costs as well as the actual monetary costs that accompany these procedures. We often get the question, “how much does weight loss surgery cost?”
Surgery costs depend on how your insurance is contracted with WBI and with your preferred facility. For a good reference though, our Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure price is $15,905* when you choose to self-pay. The prices of our other popular procedures differ slightly, but Nevada is notorious for having some of the lowest-priced weight loss procedures in the country. *price subject to change without notice.
The price of bariatric surgery at Western Bariatric Institute includes:
- Consultation and pre-operation visit

Additional costs include bariatric meal replacements, extra nights stayed at our facility, medications, and diagnostic tests or labs as necessary. Please consult your patient advocate to determine your total cost.
