weight loss procedures
The big 3 surgical weight loss procedures.

There are an increasing number of ways to lose weight with the assistance of surgical procedures. In the UK it is often possible for these procedures to be carried out free of charge under the NHS. This can be quite controversial in certain quarters but it can be argued that the health benefits gained by the individual who has had the operation would make them far less likely to be an excessive user of the NHS in the future, and if the individual also gains a greater quality of life surely that makes it worthwhile.

The big 3 procedures are
  1. The Gastric Band Operation : this is perhaps the most well known of the surgical weight loss operations, possibly due to the large number of celebrities who have had the procedure.
  2. The Gastric Bypass Operation
  3. The Gastric Balloon Operation
