People suffering with obesity continue to have a great track record with gastric band surgery. If you have exhausted all other methods of weight management through diet and exercise, but still have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over then this could be an option to explore. You may be able to lose up to 55% of your excess body weight 12-36 months after having a gastric band surgery.
The procedure helps you to control portion sizes by putting an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of your stomach. As a result, you will feel fuller on a smaller amount of food. An active lifestyle, paired with lower calorie intake, can help you to achieve the desired weight loss and improvement to your quality of life.
"Had a gastric band 3 years ago. I’m now six stone lighter and so happy. Would recommend to anyone."
"Every little thing I’ve needed has been sorted out compassionately and professionally."

Your decision to have weight loss surgery is a big one. Sometimes it helps to hear from people who have been in your shoes.

Long-term weight loss can be achieved by having gastric band surgery. You may find that the results of the surgery lead to increased energy levels, better mobility, and better overall health.
Health issues such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, among many others, have been shown to be reduced, and sometimes fully reversed when you lose weight through gastric band surgery.
Your slimmer body may give you increased self-confidence and self-esteem, helping you to live a happier and healthier life. The weight loss you will achieve can help you to live more actively and feel that you are getting the best out of life without your weight holding you back.
If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or over and are committed to making a lifestyle change, you may be considered for gastric band surgery. This procedure could be the answer to achieving the weight loss you desire if you are suffering with obesity and diet and exercise alone have proven unsuccessful.
Having a gastric band may help to manage your food intake. A portion-controlled diet will aid your weight loss over time and help you to keep the weight you lose off.
If you are currently feeling unhappy or self-conscious about your weight, the results can be life changing. If you have health problems due to your weight, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, gastric band surgery can help manage, and sometimes even reverse, these conditions.
Our expert surgeons can advise you on whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
All surgical procedures pose a potential risk, and it is important know what these are before you go ahead so that you can weigh them up against the benefits your procedure could bring. During your consultations you will talk through these potential complications and you can ask any questions that you have about them. As a guide, these may include bleeding, infection, scarring, pain or reflux.
The Hospital Group is a responsible provider of weight loss surgery, so we understand that each procedure is different and tailored to your requirements and individual needs. At your free consultation, your surgeon assistant will be able to discuss the surgery with you, let you know the cost, and talk through the payment plans available.
We have several finance options to choose from, ranging from paying for the procedure outright, to spreading the cost over a number of years on our flexible finance plans. Learn more about these on our Pricing and Finance page.
