Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Weight Loss

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is closely associated with obesity. NAFLD on its own is usually asymptomatic but can lead to severe complications such as cirrhosis if left unchecked. Luckily, one of the best ways to prevent and combat NAFLD is via weight loss. If you are struggling to lose weight using traditional methods (diet plans, exercising, etc), we could help.

Surgical Weight Loss

Surgical weight loss options at Allure include the gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and mini gastric bypass. The surgery that you ended electing for will depend on a variety of factors, including eligibility, and it is ultimately down to the consultant surgeon at hand to decide whether or not you are fit for a certain procedure. In the meantime, our patient advisors can help walk you through the available options.

Non-Surgical Weight Loss Balloons

Non-surgical weight loss balloons, referred to as gastric balloons, are a fantastic and temporary tool utilised by patients across the United Kingdom. With total body weight loss expectations of between 10 and 18% (depending on balloon chosen), this non-surgical option has become increasingly popular. The gastric balloon itself works by occupying around 60% of the stomach, delaying gastric emptying, and by reducing production of the hunger hormone. Combined these create an avenue for weight loss, one which enables patients to make long-term habit changes for maintained success.

Like all medical procedures there are some things to note, such as you are likely to experience some initial symptoms. These include sickness, nausea, and cramping in the first 2 – 3 days but they can last longer as your body adjusts to the balloon being in place.
