Jackie: before and after obesity surgery

Your Obesity Surgery Options

You have a wide range of obesity surgery (weight loss surgery) options available to you. Each weight loss operation has its own benefits and limitations, and at Healthier Weight we'll advise which procedure is best suited to your needs. Our recommendation will be based on:

  • Your age
  • Your body mass index (a measure of height and weight)
  • Your health and medication
  • Your diet, exercise and general lifestyle


You can use the links below to read about the most common weight loss operations. If you are unsure, you can use our procedure indicator tool, or, better still, give us a call! Everyone here at Healthier Weight is specialised in weight loss surgery and will be able to advise on what's best for you.

Start by using our online procedure selector which can give you an idea of which type of obesity surgery you're eligible for, and why we're likely to recommend it for you.
