How long does it take to see a difference after surgery?

When we help people make decisions about whether or not they should have weight loss surgery we are doing so with a long term perspective. Very often we talk about the long term benefits and implications of surgery, and we are usually encouraging patients to undergo the procedure that will offer the best long term weight loss. When talking ‘long term’ we generally quote weight loss results over 2 years, 5 years at most.

I was reading about a patient just yesterday who had undergone gastric sleeve surgery. They said that it was only 10 weeks since their surgery and they had already lost half of their long term target of 6 stone. Most importantly they said that their energy was way up, they found it easier to walk and their joint pain had hugely subsided. For the first time, this patients weight was not holding her back.

We thought that this was a story worth telling, reminding us that when you have weight loss surgery, you experience the benefits incredibly quickly.

Here is a story of another of our patients, Sarah Lock, who had a gastric sleeve with Mr Jamie Kelly in 2018. In just over a year she has lost 7 stones and her life has been completely transformed. You can read her inspiring story here.

We're still here!

Like the rest of our great country we’re keeping calm and carrying on amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have healthy staff available (and probably like a lot of you, working from home) we’re here to talk to you about your weight loss options. 

Procedure bookings

While we can’t promise we can actually perform your procedure within the next several months, there is still opportunity to go through the eligibility and consultation stages. Our surgeons are on-hand to consult with you over the phone or Facetime (if available).

If you’d like to get ahead of the curve and plan a weight loss procedure with us in the future, we can add you to a priority waiting list for when we’re able to book hospital places again.
