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.

Want to improve your self-esteem? Plastic surgery is a great way to reduce any excess skin and fat left behind after major weight loss. Its goal is to restore more perfect proportions. If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, you’ll be able to get rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better, in addition to getting rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes, and infections. If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs, then this program of procedures may be just right for you.

I called Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa after my doctor prescribed Liptor for my high cholesterol and I did not have any energy. Six months later, I lost 104 pounds and had healthy lifestyle. I prevented having to take any medicines for my high cholesterol. I love the way I feel and I wanted to share my success with those struggling with their weight in the London area.
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. 
The IRS does allow Flexible Spending Accounts to be used for Medical Weight Loss Plans and many of our patients have used this to pay for some of their program. Proper documentation is required in order to use this benefit. We will help you through this process. If you have a “Flex Plan” though your employer, check with your Benefits Administrator to see how this will benefit you.

Prior to your first appointment with the doctor, we will first need to establish your BMI ( body mass Index) as you need to have a BMI in excess of 30 (27 with associated comorbidities), not be taking any medication for conditions such as epilepsy or depression, and provide confirmation that you are over the age of 18 (ID required) before any appointment can be offered.
Phase 2: Get in the zone: lasts for 14 days and is the strictest part of the programme.  Some people can get detox and withdrawal symptoms (headaches, cravings, etc).  I have other people who can feel hungry while they go through this adjustment phase.  It is best to avoid exercise during this phase.  At the end of this phase energy is increased and the weight loss results are usually very motivating.
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.
There are many ways which one can go about losing weight in London. Gyms are a traditional and effective way to shed pounds, and London gyms have developed excellent customer service and superior facilities. Several large chains offer branches in London such as Virgin Active and Fitness First. One of the benefits of being a member of such gyms is the ability to use different centres across the capital and indeed the country. They offer standard gym equipment, along with swimming pools, classes and personal trainers. However, do expect facilities to differ from location to location. Prices start around £40 a month for an off-peak membership. There are of course many exclusive gyms across London but these services come at a premium. For those looking for a gym on a budget, the central YMCA is a great choice. Located close to the West End, the centre boasts a £25 metre pool and several classes including boxing and belly dancing.

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.”
Part of my work in clinic is to identity and address the root cause which is responsible for the symptoms a client is experiencing. The most common underlying condition I see is unbalanced hormones. Once I noticed that balancing hormones leads to the reduction of so many other symptoms, I knew I had to create a simple plan to help people understand and support their hormones.

You don’t have to be an athlete to notice how nutrition can impact your performance. For you it could be your performance at work, in the gym, or at home with your family.
