Weight loss clinics abroad

Currently in the UK, weight loss surgery (also known as bariatric surgery) is only available on the NHS to people whose obesity is causing them life-threatening medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.  Even for those who are eligible,waiting lists can be very long and the cost of private treatment prohibitively high.

For this reason, increasing numbers of people who have unsuccessfully tried all other methods to lose weight are travelling to modern, competitively-priced weight loss clinics across the world.  A full range of weight loss surgeries is available, including gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass and duodenal switch. Prices are often considerably lower than those asked in the UK, and some people chose to combine their surgery with a recuperative holiday in their chosen treatment destination.
