LifeBand® Makes Affording LAP-BAND® a Possibility for More Patients
Although many Americans are overweight, insurance companies will usually only cover LAP-BAND® surgery for patients who are severely overweight. LifeBand® is a new, affordable approach to LAP-BAND® that places this care within the reach of patients who may have been denied insurance coverage. If you are worried about affording LAP-BAND®, our Fairfield County LifeBand® office provides flexible financing options. To learn more about LifeBand® and our easy payment options, contact our office today.
Outstanding Care at a Price You Can Afford
In the past, the LAP-BAND® has been categorized along with more extreme, more invasive bariatric surgery procedures. Patients may not realize that the LAP-BAND® is a safe, effective, adjustable, reversible procedure that is FDA approved for those looking to lose 30 pounds or more.
While hospital-based LAP-BAND® procedures can cost as much as $30,000, here at our state-of-the-art facility, the LifeBand® starts at $10,999. Many patients take advantage of using flex spending accounts for further cost savings. When you decide to begin your weight-loss journey with the LifeBand® Program, you will know your costs up front so you can plan accordingly.
Complete and Compassionate Care
Although LifeBand® costs less than similar treatments, you will still receive high-quality care and outstanding results. Your appointments and banding surgery are performed in the exceptionally clean, comfortable, and luxurious office of Dr. David Passaretti. Your surgery takes place in a private room where you will receive the full attention of your bariatric surgeon and support team to ensure your ultimate comfort.
LAP-BAND® is performed as an outpatient procedure, so you can return to the comfort of your own home the same day. You will return for a one-week up checkup following surgery and have several follow-up appointments in the months following. During these appointments, our staff will ensure that your LAP-BAND® is working properly, and that you are acclimating to your new nutritional plan and exercise routine.

In addition to LifeBand® being more affordable than traditional LAP-BAND®, we are happy to provide easy financing options. We take most major credit cards and accept CareCredit™. CareCredit™ is specifically designed to help patients receive the medical care they want and need with low interest rates and a variety of payment plans.
