Bariatric surgery in the North – Why Healthier Weight is right for you

Why people have bariatric surgery

Obesity is a growing concern within the United Kingdom, with almost two-thirds of adults being overweight or obese. Because of this, there is a high volume of adults that struggle with obesity-associated health risks such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. 


If you struggle with obesity and managing your weight through regular diets and exercise, then weight loss surgery (bariatric surgery) may be a viable option for you.  


Healthier Weight provides quality healthcare procedures with the UK’s leading healthcare professionals.  We work with hospitals around the country, including Manchester. More specifically, Ramsay Oaklands, which is located in the Salford area. In this area, we offer a range of bariatric surgeries to help you lose weight and improve your health. As we understand the challenges that weight loss alongside the impact it can have on your physical and mental health.  

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a procedure that helps people who are severely overweight or obese, to lose weight. All surgeries work by reducing the size of the stomach which essentially limits the amount a patient can eat, by changing the way your digestive system works.

For more information regarding different types of weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, gastric band, and other bariatric surgeries, please click here.

With that being said, bariatric surgery is not a quick fix for weight loss. It requires a lot of commitment to your lifestyle changes, including regular exercise and a healthy diet to achieve and maintain weight loss.


One of or amazing ambassadors Vicky had her procedure completed in the north of the United Kingdom. Here is what she had to say…

I was only a 40-minute drive from my house which was one of the reasons I booked. I wanted to be close to home and knowing that I didn’t have a long journey home after my procedure made me feel a lot better!”

 Feeling close to home during such a major operation can massively help you feel more at ease. Although our team at Healthier Weight pride ourselves on helping patients at each and every stage of their journey, we also understand that there are some things our patients need to bring them comfort that are outside of our control. For this reason, by working with hospitals all over the United Kingdom we can try our best to ensure that our patients are close to their loved ones and have a support system outside of our own.

 Getting there for my pre-op appointments and post-op appointments was so easy too. The hospital was so nice and easy to get to. The staff were all so lovely and super helpful. Overall, I had such a positive experience with it all and I would happily go there again!”

 As briefly mentioned, we work with leading healthcare professionals all over the United Kingdom. For this reason, the facilities we use, and the services provided, we can help our patients feel satisfied with their procedure, just like Vicky did!
