Payment Options


The concerns of the cost of bariatric surgery are common and valid. But surgery designed to facilitate weight loss in Tucson, Phoenix, Arrowhead, and Tempe, Ariz., can be surprisingly affordable, especially when compared with the cost of remaining significantly overweight. Some factors to consider when comparing the cost of bariatric surgery to the alternative:

  • The cost of food – Research indicates that a seriously overweight individual spends approximately $6,100 annually on groceries and dining out.
  • Prescriptions and other out-of-pocket medical expenses – Studies show that these can average more than $3,000 annually for significantly overweight individuals.
  • Other weight loss programs – Overweight individuals typically spend approximately $700 annually on diet and weight loss programs.

Another consideration is that your bariatric surgery procedure may result in tax savings. Medical and dental expenses are tax deductible when they total more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income (see p. 2 of IRS publication 502).

Additionally, Weight Loss Institute of Arizona can work with you to help make your weight loss surgery a reality through the following means:
