Obesity Surgery Information

You will be given written information about the surgery and
our weight loss surgical programme is based on 3 distinct steps

Step 1: Assessment

Step 2: Surgery

Step 3: Lifestyle changes

Step 1: Assessment

This is the time where you find out more about the all the different surgical operations available to control weight and also about the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and our tailored programme, and whether this surgery is for you. It is also the time that we get to know you and assess your suitability for surgery.

Step 2: Surgery

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (Keyhole)

This is an operation that is usually performed by keyhole surgery and makes your stomach smaller by removing approximately 90% of your stomach. The operation restricts the amount you can eat and makes you lose weight.
It is usually straightforward surgery and recovery is quick because it is a keyhole operation. However, it is important for you to know that like all operations, this surgery has some risks and these will be explained and discussed in full at the time of your visit with the surgeon and team.

Step 3: Lifestyle changes

Our weight loss surgical programme is a team approcah, and you are the main player in that team. You will be guided by the surgeon, dietitian, counsellor and lifestyle coach through your journey to re define your life. In order for your surgery to be a success for you, you will be encouraged

to think about the operation
consider the types of foods you are eating
observe when you are eating
to do a regular exercise programme

The longterm success of the surgery is dependent on your commitent to the lifestyle changes needed after surgery. We know that you will lose weight, but how much weight that will be is entirely up to you.
