Most patients seeking weight loss surgeries want a quick solution to turn their life around and start a healthy lifestyle. Having a gastric balloon abroad will help you avoid waiting lists and drastically cut the procedure's cost.
The quality and standard of bariatric surgeons abroad add to the appeal of traveling outside your country to have the treatment. There are other appeals with having gastric balloon surgery abroad:
It is safe to have the procedure abroad.
You will find the surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like Joint Commission International JCI or International Organization for Standardization ISO.
The procedure is more affordable abroad.
The cost of health care in the US, UK, and Australia has risen for the past few years. Gastric balloon surgery costs 40% - 50% less abroad.
You can access more treatment options.
Traveling abroad to treat obesity will open other possibilities or introduce a better, more effective treatment.
Treatment that's worth your money
Finding a specialist abroad will be more cost-effective for you than visiting a regular doctor in your local country.
You get access to better patient care services and no waiting list.
Most doctors usually see their patients once a month. So, an average doctor spends fewer than seven minutes with a patient. Ultimately, this means that patients don't experience good patient care services from their doctors.
On the other hand, you can expect to be treated with care and respect when you go for bariatric surgery abroad.
Doctors abroad speak and communicate in English.
Some patients might hesitate to consider having treatment abroad because of language or cultural barriers. But in medical tourism destinations like Turkey, Hungary, and Poland, the doctors regularly serve international patients. They can communicate in good English.
Some doctors had their training abroad, which explains their good English proficiency. Also, their clinics have assistants who communicate in English.
You're an ideal candidate for gastric balloons abroad if you want to lose weight to reduce surgical risks. Also, the gastric balloon can be performed as a standalone procedure to lose weight.
You're an ideal candidate if your body mass index (BMI) is between 30 - 40 and you are willing to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Some of the factors that affect the cost are the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.
