Weight loss surgery must never be the first option, as it is not without risk and we will ensure that all of our patients have tried the range of diet and exercise programs to manage their weight before considering surgery. Working with our partner private hospital we offer integrated care programs to help you prepare for surgery and to adapt your lifestyle and eating habits after surgery. The surgery alone will not fix or cure you weight issue it will help you to make the necessary modifications in your lifestyle that will allow you to manage your weight down to a target level and keep it there. If you need Weight Loss Surgery, also sometimes known as Bariatric Surgery, we can offer a gastric balloon as an option.
The gastric balloon is a temporary solution to encourage weight loss. It is the non-surgical weight loss alternative for people who want an intense period of weight loss and who understand that they must keep to a sensible eating programme after their balloon is removed. The balloon works by partially filling your stomach so that you feel less hungry, fuller quicker, and helps you to change your relationship with food. It is left in place for a period of 6 months after which it is removed.
If you would like to book in for a consultation to discuss the gastric balloon please contact us here or call the clinic on 0141 332 5106.
