We are dedicated to weight loss
We invest 100% of our time into weight loss surgeries. We don’t perform bariatric surgery as part of a range of treatments, it is entirely what we do. It’s why we only use GMC registered surgeons who specialise in bariatric surgery. It’s why our medical team are permanent employees, no temp or agency staff. It’s why we work alongside the best people in the industry; to ensure we deliver nothing but the best.
We work with pioneers
We are proud to work with one of the most experienced obesity surgeons in the world. Franco Favretti was not just one of the first surgeons to implant the first Lap-Band, he also defined the surgical technique used for band implantation. This technique is now used by most surgeons throughout the world.
Franco Favretti was also the first person in the world to perform single incision band surgery (SILS) in 2009, by placing the device through the belly button (umbilicus). This is now the “gold standard” in gastric banding as the scarring is significantly reduced.
We are innovators
Healthier Weight performed the UK’s first ESG (Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty) procedure in 2016. We were the first to try the ReShape balloon in the UK as well as the LINX anti-reflux device. We strive to remain the innovator in our industry, to offer the latest procedures and bring the best results to all our patients.
We take aftercare very seriously
Surgery is the beginning of your weight loss transformation, an investment into a healthier you. But without additional advice and support, it can be more difficult for patients to succeed. We offer aftercare based on the surgery our patients have so that we can deliver the right support from the moment you book in your surgery. Our bariatric nursing team work closely with patients to support them and offer an ‘open door’ policy for life. We also offer dietary support to help our patients make their transition as smooth as possible.
We provide protection
Since Healthier Weight was formed in 2006, many companies have gone out of business leaving their patients without cover. We offer all our patients a surgical warranty package to give them peace of mind. Should our patients require surgery due to a complication they are covered no matter what happens to us. We are the only provider in the UK to offer such insolvency cover.
When you are purchasing health services, such as a weight loss procedure, it is the same as any other service you buy, you generally get what you pay for. As we are talking about surgery that requires a commitment to long term aftercare, it is vital to find out what is and what is not included when comparing providers. You should also view low prices with extreme suspicion.
Our premium services
At Healthier Weight, we deliver high quality services and great value for money. We would say that wouldn’t we (you might be thinking), so we thought it would be helpful to list some of the things you get when you choose Healthier Weight that you may not get with other providers. You’ll see from the weight loss forums and from our Trust Pilot ratings that our services are premium.
