BARIATRIC SURGERY EXPLAINED

If you're considering weight loss surgery, watch this short video.

FEW OF OUR PATIENTS DESCRIBING THEIR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

If you're considering weight loss surgery, watch a few of our patients on this video. Hear them describe how dramatically their lives have changed before & after bariatric surgery.  This was unscripted and recorded 19 years ago!  Yes, Dr. Mehta has been performing weight loss surgery for that long. 

WHY CONSIDER WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?

Weight loss surgery, has proven to be the most effective tool for patients who need to lose a substantial amount of weight. 

For very obese patients it has the greatest results, by far, when compared to dieting, exercise, lifestyle modification or a combination of those. 

Some of the procedures also help eradicating many associated medical illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint and back pain, lethargy, shortness of breath, high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia, infertility, difficulty achieving pregnancy, migraines...etc. 

As we know, the surgery is not an easy fix.  For best long-term results, one must commit to a healthier lifestyle. For those who are committed to getting their life back by losing a massive amount of weight and staying focused long-term, it’s a worthwhile endeavor which can completely transform your life.  

A RECENT STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF MEDICINE showed evidence that people on various types of diets do lose weight and become healthier over the first 6 months. However, those results virtually disappear by the end of 12 months

GASTRIC SLEEVE

Learn about our most popular weight loss procedure, the gastric sleeve, where a portion of the stomach is removed using minimally invasive surgery, creating a much smaller stomach which allows one to eat a lot less to feel full, and lose weight.  This can be self pay or covered by insurance.

SUMMER SPECIAL: Self Pay Package price is $14,990 for those not using insurance.  Immediate appointments are available, and you can have surgery within weeks.  This includes hospital, anesthesia & surgeon fees, overnight stay, and 1 year of follow-ups (in-person or using tele-health) including dietary counseling. Generally, this procedure costs between $20-30k..  It is the lowest package we could find in the North East. 

LAP-BAND

This is our least invasive & reversible surgical procedure, which is generally used for smaller patients, or for those who do not want a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass. It can also be used for revision procedures. The lap-band is a device that is placed around the top part of the stomach creating an "egg-size" stomach pouch which limits the amount of food one can eat. Neither the stomach nor the intestine is cut or removed. The band takes about 30 minutes to insert and is a same day procedure, with a weekend recovery. Additionally, it can easily be adjusted in the office in under a minute by adding or removing saline from it thereby controlling how much or how little you can eat. This can be self pay or covered by insurance.

GASTRIC BYPASS

The gastric bypass is generally recommended for more dramatic weight loss than the gastric sleeve, with great long-term results. An "egg-size" stomach pouch is created, and a portion of the stomach and intestine are bypassed where food no longer passes through them, so not only do you eat less, you absorb less. It's works great for treatment for severe diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea & other medical co-morbidities. It has the highest and quickest cure for diabetes of all the bariatric procedures. In-fact, most patients see a dramatic improvement of their diabetes within 24 hours of surgery... Even before they've lost any weight.  This can be self pay or covered by insurance. The self-pay fees are the best in the area.

REVISION WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY

A revision procedure is for those who never quite lost enough weight, or regained a substantial amount.  This could be from a combination of poor eating habits and/or, a stomach pouch which was left too large, or stretched over time.  We diagnose the issue and offer options which are individually tailored to give patients a second chance at weight loss. Revision surgeries are Dr. Mehta's speciality and he has modified some of these procedures over 2 decades.  They are performed laparoscopically, and options are tailored based on one's need and desired results.  We routinely see out of patients who travel long distances to seek his help. This can be self pay or covered by insurance. The self-pay fees are the best in the area.

MEDICALLY SUPERVISED NON-SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS

Our medical weight loss program is offered to those who either don't qualify for weight loss surgery or want to give non-surgical weight loss a try. We use a variety of the latest FDA approved prescription medications and an appropriate nutrition plan to get patients back on track.

SPECIAL OFFER: Current price is $100 / month. There are no long term commitments. 

MINI-TUCKS, TUMMY-TUCKS, BODY-LIFTS & OTHER SKIN REMOVAL SURGERY

These procedures are for those who have excess skin on or around the midsection that needs to be removed. It can range from small mini-tummy tucks done under local anesthesia, to full tummy tucks, and lower body lifts. We've carved out fees with hospitals and anesthesiologists and are able to offer the lowest fees in the area.  Insurances can sometimes cover massive skin removal if considered medically necessary.

LIPOSUCTION, HI-DEF LIPO & FAT TRANSFERS

With liposuction we can target stubborn areas of fatty deposits and sculpting the body in the process. These procedures can be done while awake under local anesthesia only.  Fat can be removed from the abdomen, waist, love handles, hip rolls, bra rolls, back, arms, thighs, calves, buttocks & chin.  Fat can also be transferred to areas such as the buttocks, hip-dips, breasts, and calves.  This truly sculpts the person's body within a few hours without breaking the bank. 

INSURANCE AND FINANCING

We would be glad to check your insurance benefits; and do all the legwork to acquire insurance approval for your surgery. We can give you accurate cost once we contact your insurance company for details. You should know that we do not balance bill patients, so you can rest assure that there are no hidden surprises. Our office staff is extremely knowledgeable & efficient navigating through insurance companies to get your surgery approved. For self-pay patients, we do offer financing.
