If you’ve been battling with your weight, with years of yo-yo dieting, and you need a new approach, we are here to help.
There are so many reasons why people find it hard to lose weight and it can have a significant impact on your physical and mental health. We want to see you thriving and living your life to the fullest.
As a private patient, you can consult with Mr Michael Van Den Bossche to find out if you are suitable for one of our surgical procedures, also known as bariatric surgery, which restrict the amount you are able to eat.
With gastric band surgery, a band is placed around your stomach. A gastric bypass joins the top of your stomach to the small intestine and a sleeve gastrectomy removes part of your stomach.
And there is now an option that does not involve surgery – the Allurion gastric balloon programme.
It’s a 15-minute procedure in which you swallow a small capsule that contains a deflated balloon. Once an x-ray confirms it’s in the right position in your stomach, the balloon is inflated and stays in place for around 16 weeks until it deflates and passes naturally. With the balloon in place, you feel fuller quicker, meaning you eat less. It’s not a miracle cure, and you do need to do your part, but you are fully supported in your weight loss journey with coaching from our expert dietitian, who can advise you on dietary and lifestyle changes.
