U.S. Patients

Since 2005, SmartShape™ Weight Loss Centre has helped more than 7,000 men and women reach their weight loss goals. Where you live does not have to be a barrier to accessing our world-renowned weight loss surgery program in Ontario, Canada. For most of our patients from the United States, it’s worth the trip to travel here for our minimally invasive weight loss procedures and 5-year AfterCare Success Program.

Invest In a Lasting Solution

While the cost of surgical weight loss procedures in Canada may seem high, the benefits of weight loss surgery can be worth the financial investment compared to the cost and low success rate of diet programs and exercise regimens. Research has found that people who lose weight by changing their eating and exercise habits alone will eventually regain it.* Studies have shown that, on average, gastric sleeve patients lose up to 70% of their excess weight and mini gastric bypass patients lose up to 75% of their excess weight—most of which occurs in the first year.
