Healthier Weight Medical Director, Mr Rishi Singhal, gives you an overview of each weight loss procedure here.
The gastric band is the safest weight loss procedure, and for many it’s also the best. With a track record stretching back 25 years, it’s proven to be safe and effective. Our team has done over 20,000 band procedures and it’s an option everyone contemplating weight loss surgery should consider.
The Gastric sleeve (also known as the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) is the world’s fastest growing weight loss procedure. It has grown rapidly in popularity in recent years and now accounts for more procedures in the NHS than the gastric band or gastric bypass.
The gastric bypass is a long established weight loss procedure. Over 30 years it has proven to be safe and effective, delivering both excellent weight loss outcomes and significant health benefits. For people experiencing weight related health problems, the bypass is usually the best procedure.
Healthier Weight were the first to perform the latest in weight loss techniques, the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty also known as the non-surgical sleeve. The ESG involves suturing the stomach from the inside to significantly reduce its capacity by up to 80%.
We only work with the best weight loss professionals in the country. Surgeons such as world renowned Professor Franco Favretti, who pioneered the techniques for gastric banding that are used by surgeons worldwide, and Jamie Kelly who performed the country’s first endoscopic sleeve with us in 2016.
We believe you should be able to have your procedure and any follow up care close to home. That’s why we choose to work at clinics across the country. From Southampton to Belfast to Glasgow, we operate from the best hospitals with world-class facilities for our patients’ peace of mind.
