Weight loss surgery UK

Obesity in the United Kingdom continues to rise daily and alarmingly it is rising fast. The government are issuing worrying reports about increases in obesity in children too. There are many factors why people are becoming obese and a lot has to do with bad food choices and eating habits as well as lack of exercise.
People are leading more and more sedentary lives and almost every family has one if not two cars compared with years ago when most families had no cars at all. Rising obesity has lead to an increased demand for weight loss surgery in the UK.

Weight loss surgery is intended to help those who are morbidly obese, to lose weight for health reasons and to help prolong their lives. Being so overweight that you cannot exercise can put a huge strain on internal organs and can have a detrimental effect on your quality of life. It can be extremely upsetting for those with this disease and it is hard to carry on with a normal life. Being overweight carries a certain stigma and it can cause depression, and chronic fatigue.

A lot of people think the simple solution to obesity is to ‘stop eating’ without realising that obesity is actually a disease and for some it is not that easy. Some people have become so large that they cannot exercise and cutting down on food has little or no effect. They need to be able to get their body working properly again and the only answer for some is weight loss surgery.

There are many different forms of weight loss surgery available from Biliopancreatic diversions, to gastric bypasses to laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. Some weight loss surgery can help the patient to lose almost 60 percent of excess weight which can help to prolong life expectancy. There are many places in the United Kingdom which can help those who are not ill but still want to lose that excess weight. The National Health Service will cover weight loss surgery for those who are at risk from being overweight and will not cover weight loss surgery for cosmetic purposes.

Having weight loss surgery done in the UK can mean paying privately for this. There are strict criteria which have to be met before a doctor can recommend that you have this procedure done under the NHS. However, it is becoming more and more popular for people to want to undergo the knife to help reduce their weight to improve the way they look. Weight loss surgery can not only improve one’s appearance but it can help to alter your eating habits, increase energy, improve choices in food and give your activity levels a boost. Losing weight by surgical means can instantly give some people back the self confidence they have been missing.

Most reputable clinics in the UK will adhere to strict criteria which has been set down by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence which ensures that all weight loss surgery carried out is in the best interests of the patient.
