August 27, 2009 · Filed Under Weight Loss Surgery · Comment 

Many patients are traveling to India for bariatric surgery due to high prices in Europe and want to get other treatment at vastly reduced cost of 60% or more. The benefits of doing this are huge; Price advantage is a major selling point. The slogan thus is, “First World treatment’ at Third World prices” the cost differential across the board is huge: only a tenth and sometimes even a sixteenth of the cost in the West! Cosmetic surgeries in western countries cost three to four times as much as in India.  If you have never considered this country for surgery now is the time to start, as the advantages make total sense – and the surgery is comparable with any in Europe or the US.

Bariatric surgery is a surgical procedure done to alter the stomach to treat severe obesity. It is a term derived from the Greek words: ”weight” and ”treatment.” Bariatric surgical procedures are major gastrointestinal operations that (a) seal off most of the stomach to reduce the amount of food one can eat, and (b) rearrange the small intestine to reduce the calories the bodies can absorb. There are several different types of bariatric weight loss surgical procedures, but they are known collectively as ‘Bariatric surgery’. Ideal candidates are those who have not been able to lose weight through traditional forms of treatment. If you have been struggling with chronic obesity for many years, you may be a good candidate. However, not everyone who wants to lose weight should undergo this surgery.

Nevertheless, all surgical procedures have serious risks. Patients with extensive bypasses of the normal digestive process require not only close monitoring, but also life-long use of special foods and medications.

  • Vomiting
    Vomiting may occur as a result of restrictive operations. The small stomach pouch being overly stretched by food particles that have not been chewed well causes it.


  • Pregnancy risks
    Women of childbearing age must plan to avoid pregnancy for at least two years following the surgery and until their weight has stabilized. Rapid weight loss and nutrition deficiencies can harm a developing fetus.


Necessary follow-up operations

Two to five percent of patients who have weight loss operations require follow-up operations to correct complications. Abdominal hernias are the most common complications that require follow-up surgery. Less common complications include breakdown of the staple line and stretched stomach outlets.

Bariatric surgery is one very popular form of obesity surgery which putting things simply causes weight loss by making the stomach smaller. The cost of surgery is not cheap by any means. For an experience obesity surgeon to perform the operation will cost very high, especially in western countries. For example you can get an all-inclusive deal in India for quarter of an amount as compared to the USA. Indian hospitals have very well trained surgeons, as well as the US surgeons if not better. The price normally includes pick-up at the airport, hospital, band, physician fees, and pre-op workup. So, all that is needed is to add the cost of a flight. Lots of people are getting their bariatric surgery done in India at much cheaper cost.
