Top Gastric Balloon and Bariatric Surgery at the Dubai London Hospital
If you need bariatric surgery or a gastric balloon (also known as weight-loss balloon), Dubai London Hospital can help. Our team of experts in bariatric surgery specialises in weight loss surgery to help overweight and obese people slim down and get in shape for improved quality and longevity of life.
Who might benefit from a weight loss balloon or bariatric procedures?
We all know that obesity rates are rising worldwide, so if you’re struggling with your weight, you’re far from alone. Being overweight or obese can be due to medical conditions or lifestyle choices. Our team’s personalised approach to creating a tailored plan that will suit your specific needs will help you achieve your goal.
We provide a relaxing environment in which you can receive high-quality weight loss treatment from medical experts who have a proven track record of helping people lose weight and regain their health. By taking a patient-centred approach to weight loss, we can help even those who have become dangerously overweight and need surgical intervention.
Why lose weight?
Being overweight or obese carries all sorts of health implications, making you more susceptible to developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, coronary disease, strokes, and high blood pressure. It can also limit your quality of life and lead to depression. A healthy weight-loss program can help reduce such risks and can improve both your physical and mental well-being.
Some people can lose weight through a change in diet and more physical activity, but others will struggle to shed the pounds by themselves. If that’s the case, then weight loss procedures are an effective choice. Your bariatric surgeon will be able to explain the various options that best suit your condition.
What treatments does Dubai London Hospital offer?
We provide a range of both invasive and non-invasive weight loss treatments. These include:
- Fitting of a weight loss balloon. This is one of the most popular choices to avoid weight loss surgery.
- Gastric sleeve surgery. This involves partial removal of the stomach and leads to greater weight loss than many other treatments.
- Gastric bypass surgery. A reduction in the size of the stomach by stapling, decreasing appetite.
- Gastric band surgery. This involves applying an inflated band to the top of the stomach to form a small pouch and reduce appetite.
Your bariatric surgeon will be able to discuss the pros and cons of all procedures. Taking into account your preferences, looking through your medical history, and working from their own experience, our team of experts will be able to suggest the most appropriate course of action.
What is a gastric balloon for weight loss?
A gastric balloon – otherwise known as a stomach balloon – is a non-surgical weight loss treatment which yields incredible weight loss results. This is one of the most popular forms of weight loss treatment. In a simple procedure, a small balloon is inserted into the stomach and gently inflated with a saline solution. As the balloon expands, it occupies space in your stomach and greatly reduces your appetite, meaning you eat less and begin to lose weight.
The beauty of a gastric balloon is that it’s reversible, so once you’ve reached a healthy weight, the balloon can be removed. This type of weight loss treatment has been shown to be highly effective for those struggling to lose weight on their own, and it’s a very straightforward and minimally invasive procedure.
What sort of aftercare can I expect?
We understand that the weight loss journey doesn’t just end with a weight loss procedure. Weight loss must lead to a healthy, sustainable weight, and that requires further input from our team of experts. After your procedure, we ensure you receive the best possible aftercare in the weeks and months following the surgery. This includes follow-up appointments, weight monitoring, and advice on healthy living. We also provide an in-house nutritionist consultation to help you through your weight-loss journey with a holistic approach.
Our team has extensive experience in providing comprehensive care before, during, and after procedures. We have a dedicated team of surgeons and support staff, as well as specially trained nursing staff and care assistants who will look after you throughout your stay with us. All of our staff are trained to the highest level and have many years of experience in caring for patients.
