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."
Anybody can drop weight dramatically but to actually lose fat without damage to your metabolism requires an approach that is unique in this industry. There have always been rumours of ‘photoshopping’ before and after pictures but the industry’s real ‘dirty secret’ is that many of the photos you see are of people who’ve been starved and dehydrated for a 10 day period before their photoshoot. As soon as they eat a ‘normal’ diet, these people gain huge amounts of fat and can damage their metabolisms to the extent that it’s tough to lose fat in future.
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.

Despite London being a large metropolis, there are a plethora of green and outdoor spaces which can be utilised to help you with weight loss. Using so-called 'Boris bikes' as a form of transportation, taking advantage of one of the many residential parks, or accessing one the outdoor pools or lidos can be a productive and more enjoyable way of getting in shape than the confines of a gym.

The blood test looks at standard blood parameters, this includes liver function, thyroid, glucose, inflammation markers, cholesterol, red and white blood cells, etc.  This can therefore provide a great tool to track progress.  I often see inflammation markers reduce, glucose regulation improve, cholesterol levels lower. Note: It is not a blood test that looks at “food allergy”

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.
I have helped numerous clients succeed in significant weight loss journeys that involve losses of over 20-30 kg in body fat over the space of 1-2 years or more. I actually find such longer term journeys more rewarding as they allow me to teach my clients about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle habits on their physiology. This not only helps them, but also helps those closest to them as well.
