Our Aftercare

It’s the difference between another failed weight loss venture and reaching your target, between success and failure. Aftercare is just as important as the procedure itself. Here’s what we offer as standard, where many providers offer nothing at all.

No hard sell. Call our specialist team about your options

A weight loss company is only as good as its aftercare

Your success with any weight loss procedure is reliant on the quality of aftercare you receive. Whether it’s a gastric band, bypass or sleeve the importance of having someone there to go through the journey with you, advising you, is invaluable. That’s why we say that once you’re a patient with us you’re a patient for life and we’ll always be at the end of the phone, email or at clinic to support you through whatever hurdles you come across.

We treat every patient with the care and compassion they deserve and, as such, there are a number of features of our aftercare offering that are common across all procedures.

Already had your procedure?

  • Had your procedure abroad and now need aftercare? 
  • Did you have your procedure with another provider whose aftercare is poor?
  • Are you a Healthier Weight patient already but your aftercare has expired? 

Whatever your background, if you require aftercare for any reason we’re here to help. We offer the same service to our aftercare-only patients as we do to any of our other patients in order to maximise their weight loss. For more details and pricing of an ‘aftercare only’ plan, click below.

But that's not all there is...

It’s true that different procedures require different aftercare approaches. Being successful with a gastric band for instance requires more follow-up appointments in clinic than a gastric bypass would. But then a gastric bypass is a change in anatomy that may affect hormone levels so you might require more blood tests with a bypass than you would with a band.

We have an overview of each procedure’s aftercare and warranty below. Please take a look to see the complete set of features and benefits you would get and click through for even more information. We also offer upgrades to our packages for further peace of mind.

The procedure warranty explained

It’s important to understand there is a difference between the length of your warranty and the period in which you’re entitled to free follow up clinic reviews. This may cause some confusion (particularly with gastric band patients who rely on more follow up appointments than other procedures) so we want to be as transparent as possible: If you choose an extended 5 year warranty this does not entitle you to more clinic reviews after your initial 2 year period. Your warranty covers you for the complications listed below. Once you claim on the warranty within the specified period, it is then considered used and no further warranty is issued.

*Warranty not available when you finance your procedure through Chrysalis Finance.
