Manchester, England United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 09, 2009 -- 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 offers Gastric Banding and Gastric Bypass surgery performed by some of the UK's leading obesity consultant surgeons and ensures potential patients meet strict criteria before agreeing to go ahead
