Prior to having many cosmetic surgeries, including liposuction, it is recommended that you achieve your desired weight. It is a common misconception that liposuction is appropriate for those who wish to have a large amount of fat removed. This is incorrect. Liposuction is aimed at those who have stubborn areas of fat that they have been unable to lose with a healthy diet and exercise regime. However, this is something that is easier said than done. It can often be difficult to not only lose weight but to ensure it does not immediately return. So what are some tips you can follow to make sure once you lose weight it is gone for good?

 

1. Calculate your BMI

The first step is to know how much weight you have to lose. A good way to figure this out is by calculating your BMI. This not only takes into account your current weight but your height as well. Use a BMI calculator to find out your BMI. A healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9. To be able to have cosmetic surgery, you will need to have a BMI that is 30 or lower.

 

 

2. Make sure you’re doing enough exercise

 This can be a tough one, especially if you’re someone that doesn’t like the idea of exercise or you’re struggling to find free time in your day. If you’re just starting to get into a more active lifestyle, start off with something simple, such as walking. Gradually increase the length or intensity of the walks. It can also help to monitor your physical exercise. Consider writing down your activities in a journal – this is a great way to track your progress and keep you motivated. You can also use apps or trackers which will help to log your activities, such as how many steps you take. Aim for at least 10,000 steps per day and gradually increase this number.

 

 

 

 

 
3. Mix up your exercise regime

It can be tough to do enough exercise when you are not enjoying what you are doing. If you find yourself getting bored with the exercise you’re doing, why not find a new activity. Consider trying activities such as swimming, cycling or dancing – something that is a bit different from your usual walking or running. Research and see if there are any events coming up that you want to participate in, or if there are any challenges you can undertake – there are many challenges which you can do from the comfort of your own home. This will not only help to keep you motivated, it will also ensure you achieve better results.

 
4. Get enough sleep

 

Sometimes your weight doesn’t have anything to do with how much exercise you get or how healthy your diet is. Sometimes problems can start when you don’t get enough sleep. A lack of sleep can increase your stress levels, which has a negative impact on your appetite. Too little sleep combined with high-stress levels can result in binge eating or the body not properly burning off carbohydrates. While it is generally suggested that you need at least eight hours of sleep, you may find you actually need less. You will be getting the right amount of sleep if you are waking up feeling refreshed, rather than tired and groggy.

 
5. Don’t skip breakfast

 

There are plenty of reasons people use for skipping breakfast – not having enough time being one of them. However, it can be beneficial to wake up just 15 minutes earlier to fit in that first meal of the day. Eating a meal at the start of the day can prevent you snacking during the day, and keeps your calorie count under control.

 
6. Set realistic goals
 

So you know how much weight you need to lose and you are keeping track of how much physical activity you’re doing every day. The next way you can motivate yourself is by setting goals. However, this can be counterproductive if you set a goal that is unrealistic or unachievable. If you find yourself unable to achieve your goal, it is very easy to lose motivation and stop following a healthy lifestyle altogether.

 

Instead, try and break down your overall goal. Figure out what exercises you have to do each day to reach those goals. This will make the end goal seem less overwhelming and more achievable.

 
7. Keep track of what you eat
 

Even if you’re not reporting a food diary to a personal trainer or nutritionist, a food diary is still a great way to keep yourself accountable for what you are consuming. This will help you to see if you are eating foods that will increase your weight too often.

 

Make sure that your diet is low in sugars and carbohydrates; instead make sure your diet includes protein, full-fat foods, vegetables and fruit. It’s ok to have unhealthy snacks every now and then but consider limiting this to once per week. This will help with any cravings you have and will help you avoid binging.

There are many reasons why someone may want to lose weight. The main reason why someone may want to or need to lose weight is because of their health. Being overweight or obese has a huge impact on not only our physical appearance but the functioning of our organs.


Why we may need to lose weight

Every person will have a small amount of visceral fat which is fat around the organs which helps to protect them.  However, if you are overweight or obese the amount of visceral will depend on your weight. The amount of this fat will impact how your organs work. Your heart and kidneys can be encapsulated in large amounts of fat. This will damage and scar the kidneys which may lead to failure; the heart size will also increase in size but weaken in muscle strength as it needs to work a lot harder to pump more blood around the whole body. This again may cause the heart to fail. Organ failure can ultimately lead to death.



Weight loss options

There are many non-surgical and surgical weight loss options. The most popular weight loss option is dieting and exercise. This will help most people shed the weight needed. However, people may have conditions which may make weight loss much more of a struggle. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, Under-active thyroid and other hormonal based disorders make it much harder for a person to lose weight. This is when surgical options may need to be considered.



Gastric band 

This is a surgery which was created to help with weight loss. The surgeon will place a small band around the upper portion of the stomach to create a smaller pouch to store food. Making the pouch smaller will limit the amount of food you eat by making you feel full quicker.



Gastric Balloon

 A gastric balloon is both a non-surgical and surgical tool used to aid weight loss. The brand and type of balloon you choose to have determines if it is surgical or non-surgical. It is a tool which inflates in your stomach again making you feel full quicker. It is a very effective type of weight loss.



Gastric Sleeve 

This procedure reduces the size of the stomach by surgically removing a portion of it to create a smaller stomach. Again with the stomach being smaller, the person will feel fuller much quicker. Surgical weight loss options are only necessary for morbidly obese people or for people who have a high BMI. If you are considering undergoing a surgical weight loss procedure, consult many surgeons and doctors beforehand.    

Please note: these procedures are currently not offered at London Lipo Institute.

One day you finally take a step towards a life-changing decision which you’ve tried and failed before in numerous occasions. But this time you’re determined to make this change because you’ve had enough of feeling bad for yourself and it’s about time you felt happy in your own skin. You know diet and exercise alone can’t help you because you’ve done it before and experienced nothing but disappointment and distress, and who knows your body better than yourself. You’ve researched many weight-loss methods and that’s when you found us, London Lipo Institute. The weight-loss surgery procedure that we offer seems quite appealing to you, mainly because it promises quick and effective results and you won’t even have to go under the knife. Best of all, it’s near London and the prices are much affordable as opposed to clinics located at the heart of the city. Here are a few questions you most likely have in your mind about life after weight-loss surgery before you consider it. So we have answered them for you.

Will I feel like myself after weight-loss surgery?


Losing weight is definitely a life-changing experience, especially with weight-loss surgery, because you would gradually have changed habits that have been part of your life for quite some time. It will be overwhelming and most likely none of your family members will be able to relate to how different you feel. And no matter how many times you look at your hard-earned body in the mirror, you may not be able to process the fact that you aren’t as big as you were a couple of months ago. That’s why we offer an additional weight-loss program for those who may need that support to change their quality of life after weight-loss surgery. Your surgeon will be there for you in every step of your weight-loss journey to guide you in making the necessary adjustments in your lifestyle. You can even join support groups to meet people who have chosen the same path as you and who can relate to you in every step of the way.


How much improvement should I expect in the quality of life after weight-loss surgery?

You can definitely expect a better quality of life after weight-loss surgery, but it solely depends on your determination and control that will benefit you over time. If you are suffering from any obesity-related conditions then it will generally improve after your weight-loss surgery. The main purpose of the weight-loss surgery is, in fact, starting a healthy diet and exercise, so if you abide by it you will not only experience massive weight-loss but also gradually pursue a healthy lifestyle and hopefully for life.


Will I need to change my social life after the weight-loss journey?

No, not necessarily, but if the basis of your social life involved foods and drinks then you may have to find other ways to socialise. You shouldn’t worry about people hating you for what you have become after losing weight (a concern for most women) because the people who are close to you will understand the fact that you have to make certain changes in life after weight-loss surgery to gain fruitful results. Your loved ones should rather be proud of you for deciding to make a change in your life and even encourage you throughout to continue with your new lifestyle if it makes you happy.


Will I finally be content with the way I look? 

It really depends on how you are able to accept your new self. It will certainly take time to get used to the new lifestyle you have introduced in your life after weight-loss surgery, and you may even feel like you need to lose more weight. When you feel that way, just remind yourself of how you were before you made this life-changing decision and how much you’ve already progressed physically and mentally. Also, keep in mind that weight-loss surgery does not necessarily have to be the end of it. Weight-loss surgery only gives you the push you need to jump-start your life and temporarily aids in leading a healthy lifestyle, so you can continue to work on yourself. Most importantly, it will be much easier this time because you’ve already accomplished the hard part of making a change, which you should be proud of because we definitely are.

How does it work?

Weight-loss surgery may be a way to treat infertility in obese woman, say experts. Weight-loss surgery is already known to cure Type 2 diabetes, certain cancers and some other medical conditions, and it was found that using weight-loss surgery to improve fertility for obese women may also work. A study showed that obese women who were suffering from a condition called the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) that causes infertility, became pregnant after having weight-loss surgery procedure.


What is PCOS?

PCOS is a disorder that makes the hormones go out of balance and symptoms includes small cysts in the ovaries and changes in the menstrual cycle. It usually happens to women in their 20s and 30s but it was found that symptoms could even start from puberty. Being very overweight and obese naturally affects a woman’s ability to conceive and along with it increases pregnancy complications such as miscarriages. Not only that but any medical conditions related to obesity could also affect the long-term health of the mother as well as her children.

When should you choose weight-loss surgery to improve fertility?

Even though infertile obese women may have successfully treated their condition with weight-loss surgery, experts say that it should be your last resort, only if a healthy lifestyle does not work. Women who are planning a family should look to lose weight naturally by cutting down on calorie intake and exercise. This is because weight-loss surgery involves a lot of surgical complications that require many lifestyle changes after the surgery. Along with it, weight-loss surgery can also delay conception for up to a year and maybe even more, most importantly because the foetus may lack nutrients that it needs. Bariatric surgery is the most effectively known weight-loss surgery to improve fertility, as far as the studies show. But like previously said, it does come with a lot of complications.

Weight-loss surgery at London Lipo Institute

Here at London Lipo Institute, we do not offer a specific weight-loss surgery to improve fertility. You may wish to contact your GP to inquire about procedures such as gastric balloons or pose procedure.

The Good & The Bad
The Good

Weight-loss surgery is ideal for those people whose BMI falls over 30 and have not been able to lose weight even after trying various diets and exercises. There are different types of weight-loss surgeries available in London and the rest of the UK, and the choice solely depends on the health condition, BMI and the preference of an individual. There are a lot of positive effects of weight-loss surgery and it does more than just aid you to lose weight:

  • Improvement in lifestyle habits if recommended dietary plan is followed

  • Improves obesity-related problems such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, etc.

  • Expect 35-40% weight-loss on average but also depends on the type of weight-loss surgery you had

  • Reductions in the risk of premature death

  • Lower risk of Endometrial cancer



The Bad

Recently, researches found some negative effects of weight-loss surgery that made the headlines. The surgery has been associated with an increase in suicide rates and according to The NHS, effects of weight-loss surgery may increase twice the risk of self-harm. However, a different study claimed that the risk of people committing suicide is completely exaggerated. So to find out the truth, we did some of our own research. The suicide rates are being linked to weight-loss surgery apparently because of the psychological influence that it has on a person after their surgery. The study is inconclusive, but it is wrong to say that there are no psychological effects of weight-loss surgery, however, it is also vitally important to understand why this is happening.

The psychological effects of weight-loss surgery

It is very normal for a person to experience mood-swings as their weight stabilizes after surgery, but the reason behind it is often because they realise the problems they had before surgery still exists. What this means is that when people go through weight-loss surgery, they are mentally expecting a life-changing experience. Of course, they experience a big improvement in their health and appearance, but other life problems are still there. Therefore, it is very important that the person who wants to undergo a weight-loss surgery is mentally prepared to be disappointed if nothing has changed except their lifestyle. The effects of weight-loss surgery also involve risks of chronic headaches and nausea, however, this is mostly during the first stage after the surgery. Keep in mind that you will still be recovering, your body will need time to adjust to the change. If you experience discomfort, be sure to tell your surgeon who should be able to recommend you a safe remedy that you can take to cure it. The biggest factor found during the research was that a vast majority of people who had gastric bypass surgery for weight-loss were prone to self-harm. However, it was also found that the people who did self-harm were already diagnosed with a psychological illness. So they already had a higher risk than most people. Luckily, there are still some alternatives such as gastric balloons and pose procedures that have not found any major side-effects on people’s mental health after their weight-loss surgery.

Weight-loss surgery in London Lipo Institute

The effects of weight-loss surgery may have alarmed you, but here at London Lipo Institute we only practice non-surgical methods for weight-loss to provide the best and safest method to lose weight. The two procedures that we offer are:

  • Gastric balloon

  • Pose procedure

They are both non-surgically performed procedures and they offer the same benefits as their alternatives. Unfortunately, you may not be able to avoid the headaches and feeling of nausea, but most people only experience it for the first week of their surgery. Both surgeries offer fast recovery and guarantee that you will be back to feeling normal again in no time. 


Note: London Lipo Institute does not offer gastric balloon procedures or pose procedures.

What is it?

A weight-loss surgery, pose procedure involves reducing the size of the stomach to make the individual feel fuller quicker than normal. This means your food intake will be reduced into small portions. Therefore, eating nutritious food for every meal is vital for any type of weight-loss surgery. Quite a popular weight-loss surgery in London after gastric balloons, the procedure is performed using a long tool that is inserted into your mouth and into the stomach. The instrument is then used to create folds in the stomach walls to reduce its size.

pose procedure

Pose procedure explained

The pose procedure is performed using the endoscopic technique by inserting a long tool with a camera attached to it into the mouth and into the stomach. The procedure involves creating multiple folds in the stomach walls with an IOP (Incisionless Operating Platform) that grasps, folds and fastens tissues together.


pose procedure london

Benefits of pose procedure
  • It is a non-surgical procedure

  • No incisions are made so no scars are left on the body

  • The procedure is simple and quick (approximately 1 hour)

  • Quick recovery (2-3 days)

  • Lower risks

  • Can be reversed if necessary

What are the risks of a pose procedure?
  • A temporary sore throat and nausea

  • Ulcer (rare)

Are you a candidate for pose procedure?

An ideal candidate for pose procedure is a person who has BMI of 30-40 and who has 100 pounds or less to lose. You also have to be motivated and determined to make a significant change in your diet and exercise because pose procedure and any other weight-loss surgery depends on a healthy diet to get effective results.

Post-op Diet

The first few days after your surgery, you will be limited to liquids such as soup, water, milk, etc. Gradually you can start eating semi-solid food and then normal food within 2 weeks after your weight-loss surgery. However, the amount of food must be reduced and you should add nutrients to every meal. It will be important to ensure that your body is getting the nutrients you need but also stick to healthier options to achieve weight loss with the pose procedure.


Please note: London Lipo Institute currently does not offer this procedure.

According to a Swedish study, weight-loss surgery for diabetics could not only help them lose weight but could also be more cost-effective to lower down blood sugar compared to health-care and medications. Weight-loss surgery for diabetics, in particular, Type 2 diabetes, can make a big difference and so people are found to have experienced their blood sugar level goes back to normal in just a couple of days after the weight-loss surgery. A study showed that 400 diabetic people had seen improvement in Type 2 diabetes after weight-loss surgery, and 62% showed no sign of diabetes after about 6 years of weight-loss surgery for diabetics. Surgeons have recommended weight-loss surgery for diabetics if they have failed in controlling their blood sugar level with lifestyle changes and drugs, regardless of their BMI.

The options

Gastric Bypassgastric bypass A small stomach pouch is first created by dividing the top of the stomach from the rest of the stomach. And then the top portion is connected to the small intestine. The benefits of this weight-loss surgery for diabetics is that because the small intestine that usually absorbs the calorie no longer has food going through it, this means there is a low degree of calories being absorbed. Most importantly, like any other weight-loss surgery, gastric bypass suppresses hunger and causes changes in the gut hormones, which is primarily mechanisms of obesity including Type 2 diabetes.

Gastric bandgastric band A surgical treatment for obesity, it is similar to a bariatric surgery where an inflatable band is surgically placed around the stomach. The band is used to limit the amount of food a person can eat at one time as it creates a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach. After banding the stomach, the pouch can only hold an ounce of food. Because the gastric band is performed as laparoscopic surgery, it is considered the least invasive form of bariatric surgery.

Gastric sleevegastric sleeve The gastric sleeve is a procedure where 80% of the stomach is surgically removed so the stomach is able to hold a smaller amount of food. It has a great effect on the gut hormones again. which happens to be the source of hunger and blood sugar control. There is proof that this weight-loss surgery for diabetics can really improve Type 2 diabetes. Keep in mind all these weight-loss surgeries for diabetics are surgical and will carry complications of any other surgical procedures. Therefore, the decision to have it is really up to your preference. However, we do not offer these procedures here at London Lipo Institute because of their risk characteristics. We do, however, offer an alternative weight-loss surgery option called the gastric balloon.

Gastric balloons A non-surgical procedure, gastric balloon is simple, effective and takes only about half an hour for completion. The gastric balloons are used to trigger weight-loss temporarily and therefore has to be removed within a period of 6 months to a year. The procedure involves inserting deflated balloons using an endoscope with a camera that goes into the mouth and down into the stomach. The camera is used to help the surgeon guide the placement of the gastric balloons. Once in the stomach, the surgeon inflates the balloons by filling them with a sterile saline solution and then releases them. It is much safer compared to a surgical procedure and carries very minimal complications.


Please note: London Lipo Institute does not currently perform gastric bypass or gastric balloon procedures.

Success stories – Dorothy,31

One of our personal favourites among all the success stories, Dorothy (31) weighed 80 kgs before she decided to get gastric balloons for weight-loss. When asked why she wanted it, she said: “I have been overweight for a long time, ever since I can remember, so I wanna make this change because I wanna look like a different person, hopefully, the person I have always dreamt of being.”

“After I had gastric balloons placed inside my stomach I have to admit that it took some time to get used to the feeling inside my belly that made my family and friends worry, but they were also very supportive. And it was all worth it because it worked! I lost a total of 15 kgs within 6 months and continued losing a few pounds even after getting the balloons removed. People ask me if I would do it again and my answer is, Yes! I would do it all over again to feel as amazing as I feel right now. I am very proud of myself to have taken that step to change my life.”

Dorothy was an ideal candidate for gastric balloons because her BMI before the weight-loss surgery was just about 30 and she was not suffering from any serious obesity conditions. We decided on Orbera gastric balloon for her and we also reserved a second one to be placed if she hadn’t experienced any difference within 2 months, which at the end wasn’t required. She showed great progress from the start – the advantage of strictly following a diet plan. It was our pleasure to have contributed to Dorothy’s weight-loss journey and we are extremely pleased with her results.

Success stories – Nafisa, 45

“I decided to have gastric balloons because I felt like I had to do something for my health, for myself and my kids. With Easy Life I lost 22 kgs and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel lighter. People laugh when I say it but it’s true. I was a foodie when I was weighing 92 kgs but after getting gastric balloons my lifestyle has changed. My doctors and my support team supported me the whole way through and I believe they’re the ones who really motivated me to pursue a healthy diet. I weigh 70 kgs and I feel absolutely amazing.”

Nafisa (45) had her gastric balloons for 12 months because she wanted to lose a dramatic amount of weight. We had to adjust her balloons after 5 months as her weight-loss was gradually slowing down, which Easy Life gastric balloon allows, but after the adjustment, it was back on track. She has lost an amazing amount of fat and it seems that her diet habits have improved. We are proud to say that the person we had met 12 months before her weight-loss surgery has changed and she seems happy with her achievement.

Success stories – Lory, 52

Many people who come to us for weight-loss surgery say they want to lose weight not to look good but look like themselves again, and Lory, 52 was one of them.

“I hate needles so surgery was out of the question. So when one of my colleagues told me about gastric balloons I knew it was perfect for me. Ever since I got pregnant with my first child, I continued to get bigger. Next thing I know I’m already weighing 20 kgs heavier than I used to be. But I felt like it was too late for me to get back my body because I was a mum and truthfully I’m getting old. Gastric balloon proved me wrong and I’m glad because now I’m back to looking like myself again.”

You will probably come across a lot of success stories like Lory’s because pregnancy does change you and your body that some of us are not able to looking like themselves ever again. And that’s what we’re here for. These success stories are of people who diligently worked to change their life as well as the person they were. We, at London Lipo Institute, take pride in being part of their weight-loss journey and work together to provide the best and safest support needed by our clients to achieve their goals. We have a team of surgeons who will be helping you throughout your weight-loss journey, so you won’t be alone.

Are you considering a weight-loss surgery but you don’t know which option to go for? With a lot of options available out there, it’s an understatement to say that it can be overwhelming and confusing at the same time. Worry not! We are here to help you with your struggle and hopefully, by the end of the article, you’ll know what you really want.

First, let’s clear out the difference between gastric balloon vs gastric band. Both procedures aim to help people lose a significant amount of weight by aiding and encouraging a healthy lifestyle and diet. However, the two procedures are performed in a quite different way.

Gastric balloon

A non-surgical procedure, gastric balloon is simple, effective and takes only about half an hour for completion. The gastric balloons are used to trigger weight-loss temporarily and therefore has to be removed within a period of 6 months to a year. The procedure involves inserting deflated balloons using an endoscope with a camera that goes into the mouth and down into the stomach. The camera is used to help the surgeon guide the placement of the gastric balloons. Once in the stomach, the surgeon inflates the balloons by filling them with a sterile saline solution and then releases them.

Gastric band

Surgical treatment for obesity, it is similar to a bariatric surgery where an inflatable band is surgically placed around the stomach. The band is used to limit the amount of food a person can eat at one time as it creates a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach. After banding the stomach, the pouch can only hold an ounce of food. Because the gastric band is performed as laparoscopic surgery, it is considered the least invasive form of bariatric surgery.

The differences

The one thing to remember is that gastric band is still a surgical procedure and therefore will have similar risks as any other surgical procedures as well as a similar recovery period. Gastric balloon, on the other hand, does not come with any surgical complications and recovery time is much shorter. With gastric balloons in place, the stomach empties slower compared to gastric bands. A gastric band is ideal for candidates who have a BMI of 40 or above, or BMI of 30 with serious health issues and not eligible for other weight-loss surgery procedures. Whereas, for gastric balloons, an ideal candidate would be someone with a BMI of 27 or above and does not necessarily have to be suffering from a serious condition. There is a lower chance of needing a re-adjustment after getting your first gastric balloon. However, gastric bands are placed in such a way that it can be easily tightened or loosened to make any adjustments that may be required.

Which is better?

There are no better or worse weight-loss surgery procedures and solely depends on your health, weight and preference. If it is a question of gastric balloon vs gastric band, however, gastric balloon is most commonly preferred by people mainly because you do not have to go under the knife. It is also very ideal for people who have a heavy schedule and wish for a fast recovery. With gastric balloons, you should be fit to carry on with your normal routine after a day but do expect some discomfort during the first week of living with a gastric balloon inside your stomach.

Result!

The results of the gastric band vary depending on the progress of the person before the band is removed, but most commonly people are known to have lost 40-50% of excess body fat. But most people are reluctant to choose this procedure due to the fact that it has a lot of complications associated with it. On the other hand, gastric balloon is more commonly chosen by people because it has similar benefits as any other weight-loss surgery, but most importantly it is a non-surgical procedure. Gastric balloon vs gastric band – your choice solely depends on your preferences and the results you want. Have you made up your mind then?
