2 doctors agree

In brief: Around 10,000

I have seen ads for 9-10, 000 total for the band.
Make sure you go to a doctor and program with broad experience in all procedures with a great followup program.

Price is ok but aftercare is everything

In brief: Band cost

Varies with region and provider. In the us 10k.
However you need to have fills also.

In brief: Depends

Out of pocket costs for the gastric banding surgery depend on your insurance policy.
Self pay prices vary across the country and abroad. Most commonly in the range of $5000-13000 from what I have found. When asking about self pay prices be sure to ask what is included, for instance fills for the first few months or your preop workup.. Best bet is to call the surgeons in your area to get an idea.
