People have cosmetic or weight loss surgery for all kinds of reasons. The following questions are designed to help you prepare for your free consultation.
Weight loss FAQs
Whether you opt for a gastric band, bypass or sleeve, the cost of your weight loss surgery will vary from person to person. The total cost is inclusive of the surgery itself, your surgeon and anaesthetist fees, medication as well as taking into consideration whether you require a hospital stay and the length of the aftercare package you choose.
As your weight loss surgery package is tailored to your individual needs and requirements, so is your aftercare, therefore the length of your cover will be chosen by you. We are proud to offer up to 6 years of comprehensive aftercare which includes on-going support from our expert dietitian and nursing team who make up your dedicated weight loss support team.
Liposuction and weight loss surgery are two very different procedures. This is because liposuction is a cosmetic procedure which can help to improve the aesthetic appearance of parts of your body where there are stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise, but it does not contribute to overall weight loss. Whereas if you have a high BMI are ready to make a long-term lifestyle change which includes making serious changes to your exercise and diet, then weight loss surgery could be an option for you.
There isn’t a set amount of time between having a consultation and the day of your surgery. This is because all of our consultations are free with no obligation to proceed any further and we encourage all of our customers to take the time to think about whether surgery is definitely right for them. If you did wish to proceed and book your surgery then the waiting time between your consultation and actually having your surgery will vary from person, but on average, this is usually 4-6 weeks, but can will depend on you individually.
There isn’t a set price for any of our cosmetic surgery procedures as your personal package will be based on you and tailored towards what you want to achieve. The total cost of your cosmetic surgery procedure with us will be inclusive of the surgery itself, your surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees, medication, your hospital stay as well as 3 years comprehensive aftercare which comes as standard with all customer surgery at The Hospital Group.
The care and wellbeing of all our customers is of a high priority to us which is why we are proud to offer 3 years of comprehensive aftercare as standard with all of our cosmetic surgery procedures. We also offer an extended aftercare option of up to 6 years to give you that extra peace of mind.
Since cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure (which you choose yourself), you do not need a GP referral. Our dedicated nursing team will review your medical history including any specialist doctors you might see as well as any regular medication which you are taking which we might need to take into consideration and assess your suitability for surgery.
To give you an idea of the time period, it is usually around 4-6 weeks from having a consultation until your surgery day. That being said, there isn’t a set amount of time between having a consultation and the day of your surgery. This is because, following your consultation there is a minimum 14 day cooling off period. Additionally, if you did wish to proceed and book your cosmetic procedure, your surgery date will depend on surgeon availability and your medical requirements.
