Weight Loss in a Busy World

Weight loss is tough. If it wasn’t, we’d all be in great shape. Especially in our very modern, very busy world, it is very easy to lose track of your health and the way in which you move and eat. How often do we neglect making a healthy lunch for work and instead indulge in something quick, easy, and not so healthy out of sheer convenience? It is no wonder then that obesity continues to be on the rise in the UK. According to the most recent NHS survey, two-thirds of the English population are overweight.

It is becoming more and more important that we take care of our bodies, and there are ways that we can be supported by medical professionals in order to achieve our weight loss goals. Both surgical and non-surgical, here are a few options available with the experts at Allure.

Could Medical Weight Loss Help?

Gastric Balloons

The gastric balloon weight loss tool is temporary and discreet, all we suggest is taking three days off of work to help manage those initial symptoms. Allure Weightloss offer the Orbera 365 and the Allurion Balloon, which offer a total average weight loss of between 10 – 18% and 10 – 15% respectively. The Orbera 365 is FDA approved to stay in the stomach up to 12 months and requires an endoscopy at placement and removal. The Allurion Balloon comes in the form of a swallowable capsule and stays in the stomach for around 16 weeks before deflating and passing ‘naturally’.

Bariatric Surgery

We also offer bariatric surgery in the form of the gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and mini gastric bypass. It takes longer to recover from bariatric surgery, around 6 – 8 weeks. But you can expect to go back to work at 2 – 3 weeks depending on your progress and profession. Patients can lose around 70% of their excess weight on over a two year period.

Dietetic Care

Our unique aftercare service allows Allure Patients to take advantage of our HCPC registered dietitians. The dietitian you see will depend on the procedure you elect. Odul works with gastric balloon patients whilst Chris works with those individuals have gone through bariatric surgery. It is essential that patients work with our dietitians in order to make those long-term habit changes that facilitate prolonged maintenance of weight loss.
