If you're considering gastric band surgery, you're probably wondering how much weight you could lose. The reality is that weight loss cannot be predicted accurately as everyone loses weight at different rates, but as a guide we expect gastric band patients to lose 50-60% of their excess weight over 2 years. On this page we have collated a selection of patient photos showing their appearance both before and after having a gastric band fitted. All of these people started their journey with us by taking the bold step of calling or emailing us to explore their weight loss surgery options. All of them took advantage of our free, no obligation, consultation with a weight loss surgeon to ensure they had the personalised information needed to ensure they could make a success of their gastric band procedure.

We've helped thousands of people just like you to lose weight with a gastric band and many are happy to share their before and after photos, and weight loss results. Here are just a few of their stories in their own words. Most of the after photos you see here were taken at one of our popular photoshoot events where we celebrate our patients' success with a professional make-over. Please note however that we do not manipulate the photos in any way.
You may also be interested to see Lisa’s video blog. Lisa had a gastric band with us and kept a video diary of her journey. Lisa’s story is typical of many patients. She has dropped more than 8 dress sizes in less than a year. See a short video with her story here.
When you read their stories, you may find that you share certain feelings or frustrations or you've experienced similar life events. Many patients talk about a 'trigger' moment or event when they realised it was time to do something about their weight and that they couldn't do it on their own. If this is true for you, take inspiration from their success and take the next step on your own weight loss journey.
