Weight Loss Surgery FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Weight loss surgery is performed to control weight. There are two basic ways that weight loss surgery works to help patients lose weight and improve both physical and lifestyle conditions.

We know how hard the fight with obesity is; members of our team have had the surgery themselves and therefore our multidisciplinary team can talk from real life experience about weight loss surgery.

Weight loss surgery is the first part of a long process, and aftercare is the key to success. Support is ultimately the one part of the journey that truly does make a real difference. We invest heavily in resources for our post-operative care. Feel safe in the hands of our specialist multi-disciplinary team. We have put together the below common questions to help give you some answers and provide you with more information.
