A New Study Presented At The 26th Annual Meeting Of The American Society For Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Confirms That Laparoscopic Gastric Banding Surgery Results In An 83% Improvement Or Remission Of Type 2 Diabetes

A new study presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery confirms that laparoscopic gastric banding surgery (LAGB) results in sustained weight loss as well as an 83% improvement or remission of Type 2 diabetes.

A New Study Presented At The 26th Annual Meeting Of The American Society For Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Confirms That Laparoscopic Gastric Banding Surgery Results In An 83% Improvement Or Remission Of Type 2 Diabetes

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery (LAGB) not only results in sustained weight loss for morbidly obese patients, but it also provides an improvement or remission of Type 2 diabetes in 83% of the patients.

This news, the results of a new study, was presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The event was held in Dallas, Texas, and Slimband was there to learn first-hand about the ground breaking study.

To date, this is the largest long-term study on the impact of gastric banding on diabetes. This study strongly suggests that there is a definite connection between diabetes and morbid obesity. The study noted that the patients who achieved and maintained a significant weight loss also realized the greatest remission of diabetes in a shorter time frame.

The study included 95 participants who ranged in age prior to surgery from 21 to 68 years, with an average BMI (Body Mass Index) of 46. Researchers from New York University (NYU) Medical Center conducted the study from January 2002 through January 2004. Approximately 88% of the patients were taking oral medications to control their diabetes and about 15% were using insulin. On average, the patients had been diagnosed with diabetes about 6 ½ years before surgery.

As routine follow up to the surgery, the patients’ weight was monitored and blood tests were done. During the first year, researchers followed each patient on a monthly basis, and during the second year the follow-ups were every three months.

After that, the follow-ups were annual unless more frequent visits were needed. At the end of the five-year follow-up period the data clearly showed that in about 40% of patients, diabetes was in remission and in about 43% it was improved, which resulted in a combined improvement/remission rate of 83%.

The incidence of diabetes and obesity is on the rise and that has resulted in several studies for effective methods for sustaining weight loss and for diabetes remission. Bariatric Surgery has been shown to be an excellent option for the treatment of morbid obesity as well as a way to improve Type 2 diabetes.

ASMBS is a non-profit organization that works to progressively move forward in the science of gastric banding surgery.

Leading Cosmetic Surgery Providers The Hospital Group Has Helped Inform Teenage Surgery-Seekers In A BBC3 Television Programme

Two thirteen-year-old girls undertook a week-long journey to decide whether they really did want to take the plunge and have breast augmentation surgery as part of the ‘Boob Job: My Big Decision’ programme.

thehospitalgroup

The ‘grand finale’ of the week was a visit to The Hospital Group’s specialist cosmetic surgery hospital in Bromsgrove. During the week, the girls, Kianna and Kat, met women who had already had surgery and quizzed a group of boys to find out their views on breast size and the fake vs real debate. The girls also had a session with a family counsellor to explore their motivations for surgery plus a day’s work experience as a dancer and a chef to get a taste of adult working life.

The girls’ journey ended with an opportunity to sit in on a consultation with a real-life patient and consultant surgeon Mr Sulaiman, with the chance to pose all their questions to both the surgeon and the patient. They then followed the patient into theatre to experience first-hand the reality of undergoing a cosmetic procedure.

Following the experience, both Kianna and Kat decided that surgery wasn’t the answer at this stage in their lives. Although Kat still intends to have plastic surgery when she is older, Kianna realised that she is still growing and larger breasts could hinder a career in
dance. While The Hospital Group is one of the country’s leading surgery providers, it remains stringent in its values.

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group, said: “We were delighted to take part in ‘Boob Job: My Big Decision’. The Hospital Group is a responsible surgery provider and we are proud of our values. We have an extensive consultation process prior to surgery to discuss the realities of surgery with our patient – including what outcome they should expect as a result of the surgery as well as the recovery implications and the risks. Being involved in informing and challenging these two young girls’ thinking was very worthwhile.

“Women as young as Kianna and Kat would never be treated at The Hospital Group as we only treat patients over the age of 18. However, we do have interest from younger patients so this was a useful educational process.”

The Hospital Group’s role in ‘Boob Job: My Big Decision’ follows gastric surgeon Paul Super’s appearance on Channel 4 programme ‘The Hospital’, where he advised obese patients on bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost cosmetic surgery and weight loss surgery providers. The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none.

SurgiCare Has Revealed That Enquiry Figures For Tummy Tuck Procedures Have Risen By Over 70 Per Cent During The First Quarter Of 2009

This increase is great news for SurgiCare who this year received 355 enquiries during the usually relatively slow period between January and March, compared with 207 enquiries over the first three months last year.

Tummy Tuck

This latest data from the cosmetic surgery provider indicates that as the summer approaches many people are starting to become more bikini conscious, and are looking for the quickest solution to get them to their ideal figure and ready for the beach.

Abdominoplasty, which is often commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is usually performed to help remove excess skin on the tummy which has been gained due to pregnancy or as a result of losing a large amount of weight. The procedure is designed to help smooth and add firmness to a person’s abdomen, giving the patient a slimmer and trimmer profile.

These figures follow on the back of a survey carried out by Surgicare on post-op weight loss surgery patients which found that the average reduction in waist size following surgery was 13.2 inches. 80% of patients also expressed experiencing a significant improvement in their overall quality of life since their procedure and 77% stated that they would consider cosmetic surgery again in the future.

Based on these figures and trends from previous years’ SurgiCare is preparing for a record year, as Brits shun the economic crisis and instead seek a confidence boost by preparing to look their best for the beach.

Women From The North Of Britain Are The Bustiest In The Country, But Nearly Half Of Those Blessed With A Larger Chest Aren’t Happy With Their Size

Women from the North of Britain are the bustiest in the country, but nearly half of those blessed with a larger chest aren’t happy with their size.

According to a recent survey, Yorkshire ladies top the chart, with 35 per cent needing a DD cup bra or larger. Newcastle girls also call for larger sizes, along with 30 per cent of those in Bristol and 29 per cent of Brummies.

At the other end of the scale, only 22 per cent of Mancs and 21 per cent of London lasses boast boobs above DD.

But the study revealed that four in ten of those questioned think their boobs made it harder for them to find a man, while two thirds found it harder to exercise.

Ten per cent say they are too embarrassed to dance or chat to men. And a massive 22 per cent said that they had at least considered breast reduction surgery.

Women seeking to reduce their breast size can find solace at the UK’s leading cosmetic and weight loss surgery provider, The Hospital Group, which performed 1000s of breast surgery operations every year, including breast reduction procedures as well as uplift and enlargement/augmentation procedures.

Large breasts can be the cause of significant physical discomfort with constant backache or shoulder pain, and many patients talk of the effect that their large chest has on their self-confidence and even their personal relationships.

The Hospital Group perform an extensive range of cosmetic breast surgery procedures, ranging from breast reduction, nipple reduction, breast uplift and enlargement.

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group said: “We see a large number of women who are affected by their large chest, so it is no surprise that this study has found so many unhappy with their ‘blessing’. “At The Hospital Group, people can be assured of a dedicated, professional service, with astounding success rates and a limited waiting time. Our surgeons have years of experience, and can advise you honestly on how The Hospital Group can help you achieve the size and shape breasts you want. For those with larger breasts, that means a reduction; whereas, for others, an uplift or enlargement is required. Everyone’s anatomy and requirements are different, but our staff will listen to the patient and provide honest advice about the best treatment and likely outcome.”

The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none. Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost cosmetic surgery providers.

Toronto Weight Loss Surgery Gives Patients A New Lease On Life

Personal weight issues are usually private battles fought behind closed doors. Common feelings of shame, fear and low self esteem felt by individuals waging war against weight issues often keeps them from seeking assistance from friends, family and medical professionals. All it takes is one comforting hand to step into the picture and help put an individual at ease.

One Bariatric Surgery center is working hard to be that helping hand. Using a laparoscopic band, Slimband’s skilled surgical team creates a smaller gastric pouch by encircling the upper portion of the client’s stomach. The band is then adjusted by filling it with a saline solution to achieve the correct restriction. This creates the ability for the client to feel full faster and require less food while still feeling satisfied. Because less food is being consumed by the client they begin to successfully lose weight. On average, clients will see up to a 48% weight loss within the first year following the medical procedure.

Weight loss is the key motivator for gastric banding surgery; however it also results in additional benefits, with clients experiencing improved health, a positive feeling of self-worth and increased energy levels. All of these factors lead to a client leading an overall higher quality of life; becoming more socially engaged, physically active and with lower health risks.

Laparoscopic gastric banding is a simple and safe medical procedure resulting in a highly effective solution to weight issues and obesity-related health risks. There are a number of clients who seek this medical procedure as a way to treat Type 2 diabetes, as it has been proven to reduce symptoms and, in some cases, even cure the disease.

Once a client has attended the complimentary consultation and is qualified for the procedure, they get access to the extensive pre-op support the clinic provides in preparation for their surgery. During the minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery a small gastric band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach. An access port is placed underneath the abdomen wall that will allow medical staff to administer the saline solution for band adjustments.

While weight loss surgery of this type has become common practice in recent years, potential clients are advised to thoroughly research the credentials of a medical facility before undergoing the surgical procedure. While many treatment centers perform this operation, the Slimband clinic provides an unrivaled follow-up program with the expertise of a multi-disciplinary staff.

When a client books their procedure they also have access to the extensive post-operative support. The Slimband Support Program is specifically tailored to address the various needs of people struggling with obesity and weight loss. Their support staff provides knowledge and guidance in the areas of proper nutrition, psychological counseling, physical fitness and medical assistance. Because each of these follow-up treatments is included in the original procedure payment, no additional charges are incurred by the client.

The support program is offered at the Toronto Slimband clinic and outpatient arrangements can be made for long distance clients that live out of the area. Slimband also offers financing options for the surgery through a reputable medical procedure creditor.

Post-surgery clients learn to make better lifestyle changes by learning proper nutrition and how to make healthy meal choices when at home or dining out. Counseling programs guide clients in identifying triggers, creating goals for their new life and how to achieve them. Fitness experts encourage clients to include physical activities in their schedules and create customized fitness regimens in order to regain their self-confidence. Finally, the medical staff provides follow-up care to monitor the client’s progress, track the band’s restriction and fill levels as well as discuss any medical issues a client may be experiencing. The inclusive post-surgery follow-up care extends across a four-year period.

Surgicare Introduces New Vaser Lipo Procedure In Response To A Huge Rise In Smartlipo Enquiries

Following a first quarter year on year increase of 375% in the number of enquiries for SmartLipo through Surgicare, the cosmetic surgery network has announced the introduction of their new Vaser Lipo procedure.

SurgiCare’s current SmartLipo procedure is a revolutionary concept in fat removal, using laser technology to melt fat cells and provide immediately visible results. The introduction of Vaser Lipo technology leads to more selective and gentle procedure that reduces possible swelling and bruising, producing a shorter recovery period.

Liposuction has been around as a favourite body contouring surgical procedure since the 1980s, however a few years ago the technique of SmartLipo, was introduced as a form of Liposuction without the suction to help reduce recovery times. SmartLipo uses a fine fibre optic laser to break up fat deposits which are then gradually reabsorbed by the body over the next 6 to 12 weeks.

Vaser, which stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, is an ultrasound assisted form of Liposuction developed by Sound Surgical Technologies in Utah. Vaser utilizes fine probes which include engineered grooves to help control and restrict the effects of the ultrasound to targeting just the fat and not the surrounding cells, as well as reducing any potential bleeding.

Mark Bury, CEO at Surgicare, said, “Surgicare is always looking for ways to improve patient care and reduce recovery times. The introduction of the new Vaser Lipo procedure will mean even better results for patient and represents a major step forward. With the increase in the number of enquiries which we have already received for SmartLipo procedures this year, we expect to be very busy in the run up to the summer holidays.”

Recent Research Published By The American Journal For Medicine Showed 87% Of Diabetics Either Saw A Complete Cure Or Improvement After Weight Loss Surgery

As the focus on the nation’s expanding waistlines grows, medical experts now believe that weight loss surgery can completely eliminate all types of Diabetes.

The UK’s number one weight loss surgery provider, The Hospital Group, has seen outstanding long-term results for its gastric band patients over the last three years. Of the 106 gastric band operations performed in January 2007, the total weight loss was a massive 300 stone. Obesity is the main risk factor for Diabetes, so sustained weight loss on this level goes a long way towards fighting the condition, which affects 2.5 million people in the UK, according to Diabetes UK.

The research published by the American Journal for Medicine showed that following obesity surgery, 87% of diabetics either saw a complete cure or improvement.

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group, said: “More and more people are choosing to have obesity surgery with The Hospital Group and it’s fantastic because people see results so quickly, which gives them the get up and go to live healthier lifestyles – some free from Diabetes. You wouldn’t think it, but Australia is the gastric band capital of the world. Their government recognises the long-term savings it can make by funding obesity surgery on their national healthcare system – and in the same way, obesity surgery in the UK is saving the NHS money by curing Diabetes patients, which is currently costing the NHS £1m an hour.”

The huge surge in demand for obesity fighting treatments such as Gastric Bands, Balloons and Bypasses from The Hospital Group has more than doubled in the last year, rising from 111 operations in February 2008 to 225 in the same month in 2009. Continuing the trend, enquiries into gastric band surgery have risen by almost 25% from 727 in February 2007 to 963 in February 2009. Health-conscious surgery-seekers in February 2008 made 815 enquiries into The Hospital Group’s obesity surgery.

The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none. Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost cosmetic surgery providers, and the same high standards remain to this day. For further information of The Hospital Group’s range of gastric procedures, surgery-seekers should visit the website www.thehospitalgroup.org or call our patient care coordinators on 0845 762 6727.

Following the disastrous weight loss surgery experience of TV personality Anne Diamond in Europe, SurgiCare has urged anyone seeking a similar procedure to stay in the UK

SurgiCare, the cosmetic surgery specialist, has warned people seeking weight loss surgery to stay in the UK to undergo the procedure, instead of going overseas, following the terrible experience of TV’s Anne Diamond.

Ms. Diamond travelled to Belgium for the weight loss surgery that would fit her with a gastric band after unsuccessfully trying to lose weight by traditional methods, such as dieting. Unable to question the nurses regarding the operation due to the language barrier, Ms. Diamond blindly underwent the procedure.

The operation, which limits the stomach’s capacity for food by tightening a silicone loop three quarters of the way up the stomach, brought very little change to Ms. Diamond’s weight however and upon researching the procedure, Ms. Diamond returned to Belgium to have a ‘fill’, where the surgeon injects some saline into the port of the band to inflate it and increase the restiction. This also made no difference to Ms. Diamond’s weight.

It was only after consultation with a private medical company in the UK that Ms. Diamond was told that the gastric band was in the wrong place, a problem that could have been avoided if the procedure had been done under X-ray as it is at many clinics in the UK. After undergoing the operation once again, this time in the UK with nurses and surgeons she could communicate with, she managed to lose three stone before her weight reached a plateau.

Ms. Diamond’s experience isn’t a rare occurance with many surgeons in the UK admitting to having to repair gastric bypass operations that have been done in other European locations.

Caroline Deakin, weight loss manager at SurgiCare, said: “Surgery in the UK offers you peace of mind that you will be cared for in UK regulated hospitals, be able to communicate with all practitioners you have contact with and should you run into complications help is at hand 24 hours a day in a location not to too far from home.

“We would urge people not to go abroad; we have had several enquiries from distraught people who have opted for a cheaper option and who have been left high and dry; with very little or no aftercare at all and because of this they have not been able to utlise their procedure to its full potential resulting in little or no weight loss as well as suffering avoidable complications.”

Aftercare following gastric band surgery can last indefinitely, following an initial two year period with annual appointments.

Anne Diamond also commented on her successful UK operation, telling the BBC: “I was confident that it would work, because now I knew several people for whom it had been successful.

“And this time, I wasn’t so frightened about the operation itself. I understood the procedure, was able to talk it through, ask lots of questions.

“Weight loss surgery is certainly not the first step – and for many people it would never be an option. But it can help many people reverse their slide into ill health and possibly very serious conditions.”

Surgicare Reveals That Following Weight Loss Surgery, Most Patients Report A Big Improvement In Their Sex Lives

SurgiCare, one of the leading cosmetic and wieght loss surgery providers in the UK, recently conducted a survey of all their weight loss surgery patients about their lives following their procedure, with 71% reporting a big improvement in their sex life after dropping the pounds.

With nearly two thirds of men and more than half of women in the UK being overweight or obese and increasing pressure mounting to be slim and look good, more and more men and women are choosing weight loss surgery to achieve their ideal figure.

Mark Bury, chief executive at SurgiCare said: “Just a year on since surgery, our patients are reporting big improvements in their quality of life. 90% said that their mobility had increased, with 73% reporting increased levels of exercise. Our surgery also revealed that 71% of patients enjoyed a new found pleasure from their sex life, which is probably down to 86% reporting massively improved self esteem. We advise an increase in activity after surgery to maintain the weight loss, so our patients are definitely enjoying new and enjoyable ways to exercise.”

Mark was however keen to point out that weight loss surgery should not be taken lightly or be considered a quick fix. He commented, “Our weight loss surgery program is designed for patients who are obese and serious about losing the weight for health reasons as well as looking good. SurgiCare’s weight loss surgery includes a unique two year after care program designed to support patients and maintain the best wieght loss results in a healthy and safe way. We also offer lifetime aftercare through annual reviews at the end of the aftercare program itself. Whatever procedure patients undertake, it will not have the desired effect if the aftercare program is not followed. It is essential.”

With TV personalities like Fern Britton being open about having received surgery and providing a great example of the possible benefits following the fitting of a Gastic Band, more people are looking at how weight loss surgery can help them transform their life too.

SurgiCare, one of the leading cosmetic surgery providers, has announced that as the economy is going bust, UK women are boosting theirs

As the UK has been teetering on the cusp of going bust, SurgiCare, one of the leading cosmetic surgery providers, has announced a 135 percent increase in UK women boosting theirs.

It seems despite the current economic crises, women in the UK are still investing their hard earned cash on boosting their own assets. With financial depression set in all over the country and companies going bust every day, SurgiCare has revealed record figures for September 2008.

Mark Bury, chief executive at SurgiCare said; “Last months figures have absolutely no reflection on the current financial climate in the UK at the moment. In fact, they are record breaking. Over double the amount of women enquiring about breast enlargement, in comparison to last September’s figures, amounting to a whopping 135% increase. Cosmetic surgery is generally flourishing despite the credit crunch, with most procedures on the up, but breast augmentation is especially booming this year.

Mark continued, “Perhaps women are having breast enhancements to cheer themselves up as a result of the general depression gripping the UK at the moment, or maybe their appearance and self confidence takes precedence over their annual holiday or new car. Looking good is a physical defence in hard times.”

SurgiCare is a specialist in breast augmentation, offering everything from, breast enlargement, reduction, breast uplift to the new Macrolane treatment for women who want the perfect breast shape with no surgery or recovery time.

Jonquille Chantrey, SurgiCare’s non-surgical director said; “We have just introduced Macrolane, the non-surgical breast augmentation. It’s designed to enhance and improve the shape of the breasts. It’s a very effective and safe treatment which costs around £3,000, with a top up usually required every 12 months.

Most of the women I have treated have saved for a while or opted for SurgiCare’s finance package. They are not necessarily being frivolous, just sacrificing other things to look their best”.
