The figures also state that obese people are at high risk of suffering from a heart attack, stroke, cancers, Type 2 diabetes, liver and gall bladder diseases, osteoarthritis and other gynecological conditions.
It is no wonder that obese people do want to shed off as much as possible to lead a normal, healthy life. Weight loss surgery often comes as the ultimate resort, but due to the complex nature of obesity surgery, more often than not, people keep postponing it. 

The other most important reason for delaying the surgery is the high cost of obesity surgery in these countries. It costs a fortune to get the bariatric surgery done in a western country and thus many people do opt for weight loss surgery abroad. And most common search done is “cheapest place for weight loss surgery abroad” or “cheapest destination for obesity surgery abroad”. 

Though the cost is an important factor, the surgery is a serious proposition and a life changing thing for the person and thus requires tremendous deliberation. You should be careful in choosing the surgeon and the clinic for your weight loss surgery. Only finding the cheapest weight loss surgery would not be the correct thing to do.

These are few of the important things you must look into when option for the cheapest place for weight loss surgery abroad:

1             Bariatric surgeon:  Look into the profile of the surgeon, how qualified and experienced the surgeon is, how many procedures has he performed, what is the success rate, is he board certified and always search the net about his credentials.

2             Facility where the surgery would be performed: Check out the place where the surgery would be performed, whether the OT is well equipped, whether there is an emergency room in case any complication happens.

3             Ask for references: If you are traveling abroad for weight loss surgery, ask for references from the past patients about the surgeon and about the medical tourism company who is arranging your surgery abroad.

4            Talk to the surgeon- If you are traveling abroad for obesity surgery, talk to the surgeon directly. You must know have a feel of the surgeon and know how well he can understand your requirements and expectations well.

The skills and expertise of Indian surgeons is known all over the world. Even the foreigners agree that Indian doctors and surgeons are quite skilled and dexterous. They have proved their mettle all over the world. 

It would not be thus incorrect to say that India offers “value for money” treatment abroad rather than cheap if you are looking abroad for weight loss surgery abroad.
