At Allure we understand how weight loss can transform, and save, lives. That’s why we are committed to providing excellent, transparent, and high-quality levels of care throughout your unique weight loss journey with us.
Bariatric Nurse Care
After your gastric balloon placement in the UK, you will have virtual check-ups with the Allure Bariatric Nurses to ensure everything is going as it should. This is to provide reassurance and peace of mind, so that you know you have the all the necessary knowledge to help you monitor the progress of your gastric balloon placement, and health.
Your tailored sessions with the Bariatric Nurse will be conducted via Zoom at an agreed time. These sessions will look to outline your progress and speak about any concerns you may have, or have had. The nurse will be able to answer your questions and provide the appropriate medical advice.
Dietetic Support Service
Our HCPC registered Dietitians are on hand to support your weight loss journey. Depending on which balloon you elect to have placed, the dietitian will help you make better dietary decisions in 1-1 zoom consultations. Allure Weightloss has found these sessions are instrumental to the success of your long-term weight loss journey.
Weight Counselling can be elected as an extra cost on top of the Allure Weightloss Programme. The aim is to help those that feel as though they need it tackle the deeper, more complicated issues surrounding eating habits and issues with weight loss. Patients have found this extra support extremely helpful and eye-opening. As such, we are pleased to offer the service with our wonderful Allure Psychologist, Dr Mark Bruce.
Why is Gastric Balloon Aftercare Important?
Having a gastric balloon placement is a big step in the weight loss journey, and whilst it is exciting, it may also feel a little daunting. At Allure Weightloss we want to ensure that our patients feel as supported as possible throughout the programme. Our gastric balloon placements in the UK are therefore supplemented by Dietitian care to ensure you get the most out of your weight loss journey with us.
