Weight Loss Procedures
HELPING PATIENTS TO ACHIEVE A HEALTHIER BODY WEIGHT AND LIFESTYLE
In the UK alone it is estimated that over 10million adults are classified as obese, which is based on a body mass index – BMI – of above 30kg/m2. However, maintaining a healthy weight, and lifestyle, in today’s world is an ever increasing challenge. As a result a lot of people are turning to weight loss procedures for a solution. There are many motivations for this, including:
- Weight loss procedures can improve confidence and self-esteem, and lead to better mobility and higher energy levels
- Health and quality of life are two of the most common reasons why people look to lose weight
- Obesity can lead to serious health problems including type 2 diabetes
At The Harley Medical Group, we are specialists in cosmetic procedures. Often patients will contact us about liposuction or a tummy tuck to remove fat, but these are about body contouring after weight loss, whether that is done naturally or with a procedure.
It is important to reduce your weight to a healthy level before contemplating any of our procedures, and a weight loss procedure provides a safe and effective way to do so*. Weight loss surgery is a different discipline and requires a different set of skills and for that reason we refer our weight loss clients who have a BMI over 32kg/m2 to our partner provider, Healthier Weight.
