Weight Loss Services

If a patient puts weight on following a gastric sleeve procedure they may be able to consider converting to a gastric bypass.

The Gastric Bypass is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive procedures, therefore has a two-way weight reducing effect. The gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure only.

The Gastric bypass surgery takes approximately 2 hours, with 2-3 nights in hospital.

The attraction to this weight loss procedure is that it is considered to be permanent. Weight loss is experienced from the day of surgery and there are no regular adjustments required. It is however, a higher risk procedure.

Weight loss is dramatic at first and will then stabilise to 2-3lbs per week.

Replacing nutrients

You must take daily nutritional supplements for the rest of your life and vitamin B12 injections are also recommended every 3 months to prevent Pernicious Anaemia.

Dumping syndrome

Overeating and poor eating habits can still jeopardise your success and you are also likely to experience ‘Dumping syndrome’ if you consume foods that are high in sugar and fat content. 

The side effects of dumping syndrome include nausea, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, sweating and dizziness.

Possible risks/complications

Like any surgical procedure there are possible risks and complications which will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. They are rare and everything possible will be done to prevent them from occurring.
