The London Obesity Practice at the London Bridge Hospital is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative obesity therapy aimed at patients with a BMI of 30+. The therapy focuses on healthy eating habits and portion control and consists of 2 parts. Firstly, an intra-gastric balloon, known as the ReShape Duo, is inserted endoscopically in an outpatient procedure, and remains in the stomach for a 6 month period, occupying space in the stomach making the patient feel full. Secondly, the patient is supported by a dietician for the 6 months while the balloon is in place and given advice on portion control and support to develop healthy lifestyle habits.
Phase 4: Maintenance: most people start this phase at week 12, though it does depend on how much weight you have to lose. During this phase I work with you to make the programme become a long term way of life. I show you how you can gradually expand your food list and explain which foods you should you should keep in moderation. You will end up in a place where you will instinctively know how to stay in balance.
I first came to Ageless Medical Weight at the end of April. At first I was skeptical about the dramatic results I had seen on TV. I had tried everything and did not know if the program would work for me. I had constantly struggled to keep my weight off after doing those fad diets. It was always a short term goal to a look time problem. Nothing worked until I came to Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa. They did not quick fix the weight issue they fixed they weight issue. And it was easy. Ageless reprogrammed my body and my mind. This program gave me a whole new approach to life. A healthy life!
I was fed up with being tired, living an unhealthy lifestyle and struggling to deal with the everyday stresses that life brings us. Then I found Monica, a qualified nutritionist and lifestyle guru, who helped me change my whole way of thinking about my lifestyle. Monica encouraged and supported me throughout my journey, in fact she walked the journey with me. Her insight into my condition was simply amazing. Her knowledge and understanding of the direction I needed to take was exceptional. In five months I feel so much better, I have got my zest for life back and I have the added bonus of losing an amazing amount of weight in a healthy way, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without Monica’s support and help. Monica is simply superb and would I recommend her to someone else – absolutely in a heartbeat.
It’s important to understand how the body uses food but also how we in our culture use food; for pleasure, socialising, celebrating, entertaining and all sorts of other reasons. Having a professional that you can speak to, discuss where things are going well and where the challenges lie for you personally, is worth a hundred contradictory diet books.
You’ve most likely already tried just about every diet out there, and some! You’ve likely joined a gym (or several over the years), maybe had a personal trainer, tried a bunch of slimming clubs, meal replacement programmes, and maybe some other weird and wonderful ways to lose weight, but it’s battle you’re still fighting and probably feel like you’re never going to win… Despair not, we can help!
The way we do this is through metabolic resistance training that is designed to increase lean muscle tissue (which is metabolically active). One of the biggest myths we hear is that women don’t want to ‘bulk up’ but the opposite will happen with this type of training. Muscle takes up less space than fat (per unit of weight) and so adding muscle will lead to a decrease in fat as metabolism is elevated. We also end each session with metabolic afterburner’s – exercises that are designed to keep metabolism elevated for 24-36 hours after each session.
I was looking at knee replacement surgery. I was unable to get in the floor to play with my granddaughter. I went to Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa to do something about my weight. Four months later, I had lost 92 pounds and 92 inches. I am now able to run for enjoyment and chase my granddaughter for countless hours. This program restored my life and I am able to be more active.
At your first meeting, you will meet with a medical professional for preliminary testing. Certain states require that patients meet directly with a physician for the initial consult. In those locations, you will meet with a board-certified MD (medical doctor) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine). Some, but not all of the doctors, have additional training or credentials in obesity medicine.
The ReShape Duo weight loss programme will be offered at the London Bridge Hospital by Dr Jude Oben, Consultant Gastroenterologist and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians Obesity Working Party. Dr Oben says, “I am excited to be working with ReShape’s Duo balloon because of their efficacy and comfort. I believe firmly that non-surgical options such as the balloon should very much be a part of the obesity management pathway.”
The price of your post-weight loss contouring procedure varies depending on the extent of treatment needed as well as other possible factors.

We do offer CareCredit® as a financing option, and our office also accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover as well as cash or personal checks.
