Why choose Healthier Weight?

dedicated to weight loss

We invest 100% of our time into weight loss surgeries. We don't perform bariatric surgery as part of a range of treatments, it is entirely what we do

we are innovators

Healthier Weight performed the first ESG procedure in 2016. We were the first to try the ReShape balloon in the UK as well as the LINX anti-reflux device.

we provide protection

We formed in 2006. many similar companies have gone out of business since, leaving their patients without cover. We provide a warranty package for peace of mind.

working with pioneers

We are proud to work with one of the most experienced obesity surgeons in the world. Franco Favretti was one of the first surgeons to implant the first Lap-Band.

Serious aftercare

Our nursing team work closely with patients to support them and offer dietary support to help patients make their transition as smooth as possible.

Success stories

We have more success stories than any other UK company doing weight loss surgery today. See below for just a handful of inspiring stories.

Our premium services

At Healthier Weight, we deliver high quality services and great value for money. We would say that wouldn’t we (you might be thinking), so we thought it would be helpful to list some of the things you get when you choose Healthier Weight that you may not get with other providers. You’ll see from the weight loss forums and from our Trust Pilot ratings that our services are premium.

We are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). FCA registration is a legal requirement for offering regulated finance plans that many providers ignore. The FCA also demands a very high standard of regulation from its approved providers. Our registered numbers are:

Care Quality Commission: RGP1-2312060632 
Financial Conduct Authority: 733775

We maintain our own medical malpractice insurance and we ensure that our operating surgeons have their own medical malpractice insurance.

Many will not have their own medical malpractice insurance which poses a risk to their patients in the event of a medical negligence claim.

We were the first provider to introduce a gastric band warranty scheme which protects patients in the event of a recognised band complication. Since launching the scheme in 2013, we have never taken more than 14 day from diagnosis to confirm cover and we have never declined or delayed a legitimate claim. It is a no quibble warranty. We hear about other providers who have not always honoured their claim to offer warranty protection.

We’ve partnered with independent review company Trustpilot to collect unbiased reviews from patients who have used our service.

For prospective patients it’s comforting to read about first-hand experiences with a company before making a commitment and we’re proud of our 8.9/10 rating with Trustpilot.

The British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS) provide guidelines for the NHS and private weight loss surgery providers and we observe and follow those guidelines. Our multi-disciplinary team meets weekly to review cases pre-operatively. We also have a Bariatric (weight loss surgery) Advisory Board to ensure that our practices and processes remain in line with good practice and recognise the latest published data.

Healthier Weight is a professionally run organisation with governance structures that provide protection for patients, for staff and for our investors. We have monthly Board meetings and regular clinical governance meetings at which our patients outcomes are reviewed in detail. This is part of a continuous improvement programme we are committed to.

Healthier Weight has never been placed into administration unlike many weight loss and cosmetic surgery providers. It is an important factor as if a company goes into administration it leaves its responsibilities to past patients and suppliers in the old company, and starts afresh. If your provider goes into administration their responsibilities, for example a warranty they may have provided to you, under your contract are no longer enforceable.

We publish our data unlike other private providers. It means that you can be confident about the results we achieve as they are independently reviewed and scrutinised. It should give peace of mind for new patients.
