Weight Loss Surgery with Allure
Allure Weightloss is a trusted CQC registered provider of medical weight loss in the UK. Not only do we offer gastric balloon placements across 13 clinics, but we also provide the private gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and the mini gastric bypass surgery across England. Our bariatric programmes are supported by an experienced team of consultant surgeons, dietitian, and nurse.
Allure Patients can also expect a dedicated aftercare service to ensure recovery goes to plan as well as give you a chance to maximise weight loss.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Typically performed laparoscopically, a sleeve gastrectomy involves removing 80% of the stomach. The result is a tube or sleeve-like structure. The purpose of the gastric sleeve is to limit food intake, and you should expect a recovery time of 6 – 8 weeks with 1-2 weeks off work.
The expected weight loss from the sleeve gastrectomy is up to 70% of your excess weight measured over a period of 2 years.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Allure Weightloss offer the traditional Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass as well as the Mini-Gastric Bypass. These procedures are similar in nature and differ slightly (yet significantly enough) in the way in which they are performed by consultant surgeons. By limiting the available space inside your stomach, the bypass restricts food intake as well as the production of the hunger hormone, ghrelin. A bypass may be performed even if a patient has had the gastric sleeve in the past. #
Expected weight loss is up to 70% of excess weight as measured over a two year period.
Weight Loss Surgery Aftercare
The Allure Bariatric Surgery Aftercare Programme is complete with two years of contact with your surgeon, specialist Bariatric Nurses and HCPC Registered Dietitian. This team will ensure you receive the care you need following your surgery and provide expert advice regarding recovery, including any necessary and advisable longstanding dietary changes.

Calculate Your BMI
How is body mass index (BMI) measured?
An individuals BMI is calculated by using the following formula:
BMI = Weight (kg) / Height (m)²
You must take your weight in kilograms, divide it by your height in meters, and then divide it a second time by your height in order to determine the correct body mass index.
Not sure you qualify?
If you still aren’t sure, a member of our team will be able to help. If you are certain you won’t qualify for bariatric surgery, you may still be eligible for other medical weight loss treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions

A gastric sleeve, or sleeve gastrectomy, is the process of removing up to 80% of the stomach in order to limit food consumption and reduce hunger hormones. You can find out more here.
The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass involves creating a smaller ‘pouch’ from your stomach and attaching it straight to your intestines, bypassing the main body of your stomach. You can find out more here.
The most widely used measurement for obesity. The BMI approximates body mass using a mathematical ratio of weight and height [(weight in kg ÷ height in meters) or (weight in pounds ÷ height in inches x 703)]. A BMI of 30 or more is regarded by most health agencies as the threshold for obesity. A BMI of 40 or more generally qualifies as morbid obesity. However, note that BMI measurements in body-builders and athletes may not be accurate determinants of obesity because the BMI does not distinguish between muscle and fat.
The most common risks associated with bariatric surgery include:
- Chronic nausea and vomiting
- Acid reflux
- Inability to eat certain foods
- Obstruction of stomach
- Anesthesia-related risks
- Dilation of esophagus
