“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
Bariatric surgery is the general term for a variety of weight loss surgical procedures that reduce the size of the stomach, helping patients to lose weight and maintain health through reduced consumption, healthy eating and exercise. The surgery is a tool, not a cure, to help treat weight problems. Our mission is to help patients transform their lives through surgical weight loss when nonsurgical attempts have been unsuccessful.

Patients who come to the weight loss program at Portsmouth are tested for a range of health concerns—liver and kidney function, diabetes, stomach ulcers, gallbladder problems, hypertension and other issues. Beyond this, they receive psychological assessments and are educated about behavior modification, physical therapy and nutrition. Patients proceeding with the program are required to lose a percent of their body weight through diet and exercise.
For example, many health experts suggest that dieters who receive regular face-to-face counseling are more likely to stick to a weight loss plan long enough to see results. But other studies have shown that remote counseling can provide the same benefit. And there are also some studies that support a ketogenic diet for weight loss. There are other studies, however, (and medical professionals) that have found ketogenic diets too restrictive and therefore not effective for losing weight and keeping the pounds off for good.

However, if you are one of the increasing numbers of people who don’t cook at all, this makes it much harder to be successful on the plan.  You need to be prepared to dedicate some time to buying groceries, food preparation and some basic cookery.  Yes you can use ready cooked salmon and lentils or bags of ready prepared veg but I would worry about your ability to stick with the plan over the longer term in this case.
Research is very clear that sustained weight loss results are based on more than a “calories in, calories out” approach. The SWLC offers tailor made programs, meal plans and a weight loss tracking system according to your height, weight, previous dieting history and lifestyle. Each program emphasizes hormonal health (i.e. insulin reduction and blood sugar control) that keeps the weight off in an easy to maintain manner.
You will receive a customized weight loss program that includes personal medical counseling from a board certified physician and dietary counseling from a licensed, registered dietitian. We will monitor your progress and make the necessary adjustments that will allow you to best achieve your short and long term goals. Although our primary goal is to help you reach your target weight quickly and easily, the focus of care is to allow you to maintain your weight loss permanently so that you will not put the weight back on after you complete our medical weight loss program.

Fat cells are dispersed unevenly throughout the body, and their distribution differs from person to person. Some people have a greater number of fat cells around the waist and hips, while others have more around their thighs. This is why body shapes vary so much and why so many of us are likely to gain weight in “all the wrong places”. UltraShape™ can change our contours by reducing the number of fat cells in a problem area.
