Is it covered under insurance?

Is the treatment covered under insurance?

The Insurance plan varies from one company to another. Assuming that the Bariatric Surgery removal will be covered under insurance would be wrong. It is advised to talk to the insurance provider before going to hospital or clinic for Bariatric Surgery treatment.

How is the recovery after surgery?

You can usually leave hospital 1 to 3 days after having weight loss surgery. You will be able to start to return to your normal activities 4 to 6 weeks later. But you will need to make long-term lifestyle changes to help make the most of your surgery
