Bariatric weight loss surgeries, such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), force patients to drastically reduce the amount of food they consume by surgically creating a small stomach pouch. Most gastric procedures reduce the stomach's holding capacity from about two quarts to two ounces. When eating, this pouch fills quickly. Because patients feel satisfied and full sooner, they eat less.

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.
You cannot spot reduce! Weight loss results from an energy deficit; burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic exercise will help create this energy deficit. Genetics and gender play a role in where we store excess fat and where it comes off first. Abdominal exercises will tighten and tone the abdominals but will not directly affect the layer of abdominal adipose.

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.
“It is great to be able to offer our patients a safe and effective non-invasive solution to fat loss that delivers impressive results without any downtime. The exciting development this device brings to the market is the ability to focus the ultrasound energy below the skin and destroy the fat cells without any harm to neighbouring tissues. The effect is permanent, so long as the patient maintains good diet and exercise.” Mr Christopher Inglefield
Ultrashape – no pain, no downtime, effective fat reduction system. An alternative to liposuction for targeted pockets of unwanted and hard to shift fat such as saddle bags and post baby tummies.

It is a truly non-invasive procedure with no needles, no incisions, no scars and no recovery time.

Kim lost 235 pounds and 215 inches in only 14 months.  She is an amazing success story of determination.  Kim stated “If I can do it, anyone can!”  “I have struggled with my weight my whole life.  I have gone up and down the scales numerous times.  Before Ageless, I did not know how to life a healthy lifestyle.  The staff at Ageless Center has taught me to be the healthy version of me.”  Kim worked hard on her weight loss and she looks amazing.


Results were that I quickly shed some excess weight and body fat, reduced abdominal measurement (over the stomach); felt more energetic and more focused. Five month later, I am still feeling the benefits and, more slowly, the weight is still reducing. Monica was a great help, very responsive and flexible to my timetable. A great service, well worth the time and effort.

Weight-loss programs typically have a monthly fee and may charge for packaged food or drink supplements, from $18 a month for the least expensive online plan, to more than $700 monthly. Food delivery programs featuring fresh food cost more. The cost of medically supervised weight-loss programs varies upon the services offered. Health insurance companies may cover some or all of your costs if you have weight-related health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension or diabetes.

The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.

Read, watch and listen to some of the success stories from our inspiring members! We have kept our testimonials honest and raw to show that the road to weight loss isn’t always a straight one and that’s okay. Also we are absolutely against photo-shopping the body shapes of our clients as we are proud of all their achievements no matter what size! Please note that in some cases we use alternative names and images to preserve identities of clients who wish to remain private.
Obesity results from interactive influences of biological, physiological, psycho-social, behavioural and environmental factors. With such a multifactorial aetiology, prevention of weight gain, weight loss and weight maintenance is less than straightforward. Whilst the energy equation (calories consumed = calories expended +/- calories stored as body fat or glycogen) holds true, food choice is highly complex. As such, interventions that only address factors at the individual level, and do not take into account the social and environmental influences mentioned above, are unlikely to be successful.
If you are unhappy with our response or if you need any advice you should contact the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Their telephone number is 0303 123 1113, you can also chat online with an advisor. The ICO can investigate your claim and take action against anyone who’s misused personal data. You can also visit their website for information on how to make a data protection complaint.
As you get closer to your weight loss goal, you’ll move into the Short-term Maintenance phase. During this short stage, you can slowly increase your intake of carbohydrates and calories. You'll introduce servings of starch, dairy, and normally there is an increase in the servings of veggies, fruits, and fat. Protein calories may stay the same or change. Most patients continue weekly visits.

Combining multiple procedures allows for one anesthesia and one recovery period. Each body is different, and Dr. Nimtz will tailor his approach to your needs, concentrating on your specific trouble spots, while keeping you safe throughout the procedure and your recovery. Commonly combined procedures include the lower and upper body lifts. The lower body lift tightens the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, and thighs. An upper body lift may consist of an arm lift, breast lift, and possibly breast augmentation. For men, a male breast reduction procedure may also be included.
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.”
Angelique is charismatic, knowledgeable and really encouraging – she is so connected to what foods benefit our systems and about what will make us feel well.

A: Each patient follows a personalized program and undergoes a recommended series of one to three treatments in order to maximize results. Clinical studies have shown a measurable reduction in body circumference in most patients, even after a single treatment. The series of treatments is performed in one-month intervals, giving time for the body’s natural metabolic processes to safely clear away the destroyed fat cells. During these intervals, patients can treat other areas of the body and undergo other complementary procedures.

Rigorously structured: you will be given super clear guidelines on what you can and cannot eat.  Rules to stick to (3 meals no snacking, 5 hour gap between meals, no oil / fat for the first two weeks, etc etc).  A detailed meal structure that will show exactly how many grams of food you should eat at each meal (yes that means using a scale to weigh your food).

Once it is established that you would be medically suitable and that you are completely happy to proceed with the treatment the doctor will advise you of our low fat, low sugar diet programme and will discuss other courses of treatment that can help you manage your weight. You would then come back at regular intervals for your progress to be monitored by the doctor.

Sustained weight loss for patients who are morbidly obese—usually defined as being 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight or having a body mass index of 40 or higher—is even harder to achieve. And serious health risks have been identified for people who move from diet to diet, subjecting their bodies to a severe and continuing cycle of weight loss and gain known as "yo-yo dieting."
Traditional methods of weight loss can often be tiresome and, frankly, dull. But it doesn't have to be this way. There are several ways to get fit that eschew the gym and the jogging pants. Dance has seen a resurgence in recent years and is also an excellent form of exercise. Many gyms offer classes you can attend for a fee. But if you're especially keen on learning a skill, Pineapple Dance Studios offers classes for beginners. There are no joining fees and you simply pay a reasonable fee upon entry. For those into Salsa, check out Caramelo Latin Dance School, where both regular courses or one-day intensive session are available. For those looking for an intense detox and weight loss package, then Barry's Bootcamp may be suitable. They boast impressive results, but be prepared to work!

A: The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.
