What is Surgery For Obesity?

Surgery for obesity comes in the form of Gastric Band Surgery which is also known as gastric bypass and also gastric banding but if you cannot get the obesity surgery done on the NHS then it can be very expensive. The cost of gastric band on average come with a price tag of £10,000 and this is why more and more people are turning to Gastric Band Hypnosis to lose weight which allows people to lose weight through hypnotherapy and with Claire Hegarty who is a leading in this field, she offers powerful results to help you to lose weight.

Gastric Banding Surgery which is sometimes also called laparoscopic adjustable gastric band or Gastric Bypass for short allows you to lose weight to reduce the amount of food that you are able to eat. Basically it acts like a belt around the top part of your stomach to reduce the amount of food intake and hence allowing you to lose weight. But is the gastric bypass surgery safe, unfortunately surgery for obesity is not 100% safe and this is why more and more people including celebrities are using gastric band hypnosis to lose weight.

Gastric Band On The NHS

Surgery for obesity on the NHS which is also called bariatric surgery and gastric bypass is not as easy as some people may think. Gastric Band on the NHS comes with strict guidelines and more people are turned away from having a gastric band on the NHS than people who are given the surgery for obesity operation.

With their only being so much money in the pot the NHS has to be very strict on who and who cannot have surgery for obesity which means many thousands of people who feel they really need a gastric band on the NHS lose out.

The NHS will only offer your surgery for obesity if they feel that your obesity is affecting your health and other treatment options have been tried and failed and even then, you are still not guaranteed to be given the all clear to have a gastric band on the NHS.

With the cost of the Gastric Band on the NHS being so expensive the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends that gastric band surgery should only be offered to patients if the following apply:

You have a BMI of 40 or more, or you have a BMI of 35-40 and a serious health condition that could be improved if you lose weight, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.

You have tried all the appropriate non-surgical methods, such as diet and exercise, but have failed to achieve or maintain a beneficial level of weight loss for at least six months.

You agree to commit to long-term follow-up treatment after surgery at a specialised obesity service.

You are fit and healthy enough to withstand the anaesthetic (painkilling medication) and surgery.

Please note that the criteria changes around the country so it all depends on what your local NHS trust has set down as their guidelines for Obesity surgery.

IS Surgery For Obesity 100% Safe?

This is a very important question that we are asked a lot. When going down the route of surgery for obesity it is very important that you do your research and make sure that you understand everything that is involved in the surgical process.

Unfortunately Obesity Surgery is not 100% safe and as reported in the media some patients have sadly died through having surgery for obesity. This is why some health experts and also the NHS say that surgery for obesity should be your last resort and you should try other methods for weight loss before deciding to have an operation to lose weight.

One of the things we need to make clear about the Surgery for obesity is by being overweight the surgery can be more risky like any surgery can if you suffer from obesity. The Anaesthetic is more difficult and obesity related diseases can add further complications to your weight loss surgery. According to statistics, one in 2000 people who have the gastric band bypass operation also known as gastric banding could die due to complications. The most common problem that causes death through the weight loss operation is the development of a blood clot in the lung.

The immediate risk to the gastric band bypass operation is as follows:


Adverse reactions to anaesthesia and/or medication

Deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in the legs)

Pulmonary embolus (blood clot on the lungs)



The longer term complications that can be involved through having the gastric bypass surgery are to do with the actual gastric band. According to studies, at some point in the lifetime of a gastric band around 10% of patients will need to have additional surgery which means more cost to you if you have had to have the obesity surgery done in a private hospital or more cost to the NHS if they allowed you to have the obesity surgery.

The three main reported problems that would cause you to have more surgery for your gastric band are as follows:



Tubing/access port problems
