If a gastric balloon isn’t the right choice, you might think about other changes you could make to your lifestyle, such as weight loss programs, other weight loss surgery including a gastric sleeve, gastric band or gastric bypass, psychological treatment or medication.
- Lifestyle changes involve making changes to your diet, taking some-or more-exercise and altering other lifestyle habits, either on your own or with the aid of a self-help support group
- Weight loss programmes set out an eating pattern and give dietary advice, as well as an exercise programme
- Psychological treatments can support your thoughts, feelings and actions towards yourself and your relationship with food, eating and exercise
- There are new weight loss medications on the market which may help. These can be prescribed by your GP
In our experience, most people who have weight loss surgery have already tried some, or all, of the other treatment options. Our specialist team, led by our expert Consultant, will discuss how effective these weight loss methods have been for you in order to establish if surgery is an option, and how they can support you in the future.
