Most people who have thought about weight loss have tried the traditional methods – dieting, exercise, and weight loss medications, mostly with varying levels of success. These methods can often be successful in the short term, however the results rarely last.
The positive effects of weight loss and weight loss surgery are well documented. While most people who are overweight have considered bariatric (weight loss) surgery at some point, many are uncomfortable with surgery as an option.
There are now a number of non-surgical procedures available which offer better weight loss results than traditional methods (diets, exercise and medications) without the need for surgery. These procedures are typically performed endoscopically (using a flexible camera which is placed through the mouth into the stomach while you are sedated). The non-surgical procedures available at The BMI Clinic are summarised in the table below.
