Struggling to lose weight?

Struggling to keep it off? Have you considered weight loss surgery? Bariatric Surgery for Weight Loss is a tool to help achieve health goals. Our aim is to ensure that you are “happy” and “realistic” about achieving those goals.  In contrast to diets, Weight Loss Surgery is considered to be the “most effective” method of long-term weight loss for patients with morbid obesity.

Around 80% of patients having surgery achieve long-term weight loss and the illnesses related to obesity are often prevented, cured or significantly improved. Health is restored and quality of life rejuvenated. As a team of medical experts specialising in weight loss, we can help you.

Illnesses related to obesity are often prevented, cured or significantly improved.

It is important to be involved with and supported by a multidisciplinary care team.

Multidisciplinary care is vital

Obesity is a complex problem with many contributing factors. These can be physical, behavioural, psychological and emotional. Treatment of obesity needs to focus on all these aspects, not just one. Whilst surgery very much helps with the physical aspects of weight control, specialists of various disciplines are needed to aid and support the patient in other areas – general medical care, nutrition and emotional support.

Significant weight loss is, for many patients, a life-changing event and can be quite a journey. Having expertise available to provide advice, treatment and support from different angles, allows more effective holistic care and better results.

How to find out if you qualify

Do you qualify for Bariatric Surgery? If you are overweight or have concerns about how your weight may be affecting your health and have tried dieting before, then surgery may be right for you.

There are internationally agreed minimum criteria for performing weight loss surgery. These are based on BMI and any effect the weight may be having on health and well being. The best way to find out is to have a confidential talk with one of our specialist, Mr Ahmad Aly and Mr Kiat Lim.

Weight loss surgery options

Gastric Sleeve: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy or Tube Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure that limits the amount of food you eat by reducing the size of your stomach.

Gastric Banding: Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding involves inserting a specially made band around the top of the stomach. It is a keyhole operation whereby no organs are cut, removed or rearranged. It is completely reversible.

Gastric Bypass: Gastric bypass is a very well established weight loss procedure. The stomach is divided to create a small gastric pouch and a bypass is made to allow food to move directly into the intestines.
