"I am happy with the procedure and the care up till now"
3.5 50Reviewed 04 Jan 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I had a laparoscopic vertical sleeve on December 20th in Belgium, Vilvoorde.
I had the procedure done after 25 years on and off dieting, with sometimes great results however always ending up heavier than before, hopefully, this procedure will give me the tool to book a lifelong healthy weight.

I have discussed the procedure with the care managers in the weeks leading up to the procedure, upon arrival at the hospital I met Dr. de Bruyne, who explained the procedure. I had a 2-night stay in a real hospital (AZ Jan Portaels) and the care given was excellent. The procedure was without complications, except for nausea the first 2 days after the operation (common in sleeve patients). Post op I met Dr. Bruyne 2 weeks after the operation for a check-up, future checkups I will be with my own physician for bloodwork etc. I am happy with the procedure and the care up till now, only 2 weeks out so my experience is of course limited.

"I was very pleased with the care and hospital care in 2011 and still very pleased with my surgery"

Treatment Received: Gastric Band
I went to Belgium from the UK to have a gastric band fitted in 2011 and lost 12 stone. I have recently come home from Belgium from having a breast enlargement. I was very pleased with the care and hospital care in 2011 and still very pleased with my surgery this year!

The hospital is extremely clean and the staff is brilliant, friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning for further cosmetic surgery with Belgium Surgery Services in the future!

"The doctors and staff were professional and knowledgeable"

Treatment Received: Facelift,Neck Lift
I had an SMAS face and neck lift. There was a bit more bruising than I expected but overall I am amazed at how fast I have healed. I would definitely recommend this procedure.

The doctors and staff were professional and knowledgeable. I felt safe and cared for- although it was a bit rushed. The aftercare instructions were somewhat vague and I ended up looking up online to get more aftercare info. I would recommend this clinic.

"They are very good and I was quite impressed with them."
5 50Reviewed 28 Feb 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I went in for Gastric Sleeve Bypass Surgery and feel that the treatment was of good value. I have not have any after care treatment because things went well the first time around and I am greatly satisfied. I am extremely happy with the way things turned out.

I was searching online when I found information on the Belgium Surgery Services - Brussels clinic. They were highly recommended and their reviews were great. I still feel I made the right choice. My first impression was that they are very good and I was quite impressed with them.

Bariatric Surgery Consultation

All patients are welcome for a free of charge baratric consultations at our clinics to help them choice what type of obesity surgery will help you the most to lose your overweight

€ 3900 - € 4250
Gastric Band
Guaranteed for 3 years.

In this procedure, a hollowband made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end,creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of thestomach. The band is then inflated with a salt solution. It can be tightened orloosened over time to change the size of the passage by increasing ordecreasing the amount of salt solution. The entire procedure is donelaparoscopically, where a laparoscope is inserted through the abdominal wallthrough small surgical incisions.

It induces weight loss byreducing the capacity of the stomach, which restricts the amount of food thatcan be consumed.

Minimally Invasive Approach

€ 6950 - € 7450
Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass or stomach bypass is one of the surgical techniques for treating morbid obesity. Alongside purely restrictive techniques, such as gastric banding, and largely malabsorptive techniques, such as Biliopancreatic Derivation by Scopinaro, this is a combined technique.

As with a purely restrictive intervention such as the adjustable gastric band, this surgery is largely a restriction of the food intake, with reduced digestion a less important factor. However, the long-term results are noticeably better than those for purely restrictive surgery. This is due to reduced food intake and a reduced feeling of hunger.

€ 5750 - € 6500
Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve is the latest weight loss procedure that shows promising results. By restricting food absorbtion and reducing hunger the gastric sleeve might be your best option. Advantages of gastric sleeve include lower cost, less dumping, fewer complications and does not require adjustments after the initial surgery.

How does the Gastric Sleeve work?

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of weight loss surgery in which approximately 85% of the stomach is removed leaving a cylindrical or sleeve shaped stomach with a capacity ranging from about 60 to 150 cc, depending upon the surgeon performing the procedure.

Eyelid surgery

EYELIDCORRECTION (BLEPHAROPLASTY)

The eyes are the mirror of your face. Excessskin and folds on the upper eyelids or baggy eyelids give the impression ofpermanent fatigue. Upper and/or lower eyelid surgery can return that opensparkling regard, that you once knew. This sort of procedure isactually in the “hit parade” of the 3 most frequently carried outplastic surgery operations.

Whathappens?Upper eyelids
During the operation, the surgeon removes the excess skin which is draggingyour eyelids down. This is done through a fine incision in your natural crease,which leaves an almost invisible scar.

Lower eyelids
Bags under the eyes are often caused by pockets of fat and are usuallyaccompanied by an excess of skin. The operation involves removing the fat bagsand excess skin through an incision made just under the eyelashes or atthe inner side of the eyelid, which means that there is no visiblescar. 

Anesthetic
Most of the time a local anesthetic  issufficient. Although, it is possible to sedate a nervous patient, and ifnecessary put them completely to sleep.

RecoveryAfter surgery, you will need to rest forapproximately one hour before returning to the hotel. You will not be able todrive immediately following surgery. Some medication will be prescribed(Ibuprofen and paracetamol) which you will be able to take in case of pain. Theday following surgery, you can expect your eyes to be swollen and watery, inaddition your vision may be blurred and reduced. Bruising should subside aftera week or so (for upper eyelids), but can take slightly longer when both upperand lower eyelids have been operated on.
It is advisable to wear sunglasses when you go outside, and indoors ice-packsand gel masks can help to sooth the eyes and reduce swelling (although notscientifically proven). Your scars will be slightly

Eye Lift

Eyes are the mirror of the face. Drooping eyelids and heavy bags can make you seem older and tired. Upper and/or lower eyelid surgery can restore that fresh, sparkling appearance you once had. Eyelid correction is actually one of the three most frequently carried out procedures in plastic surgery.

During the operation, the surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue via a fine incision in your natural eye crease, which leaves an almost invisible scar.

Facelift

There currently exist different names for the face lift. You will hear talk of the Mini face lift, the MACS lift, the S-lift, the Soft lift, the SMAS lift, the sub-SMAS lift and the Quick lift.

Your plastic surgeon will determine with you which technique suits you best.

Life begins at 40! You feel more confident but this does not always show through onthe outside. When time passes your skin loses its elasticity andits glow gradually. You will notice the appearance of creases between thecorner of the mouth and the cheek (This is known as marionettes’lines) between the nose and the corner of the mouth (the nasolabialcrease) and the expression lines. Aging of the skin is caused by two principlefactors. On the one hand the force of gravity on the skin and on the other handthe skin loses its elasticity because there is less collagen in the skin.Stress, hereditary and the wrong doing of the sun are equally to cause.

The following exercise is very simple and can show you how your new face willbe. Look at yourself in the mirror. Next, lie down and look in a hand mirrorhow it outlines the creases of your skin between the nose, the mouth and thecheek.

Would you like to radiate eternal youth?

Whichwrinkles can the face lift eliminate?

A face lift allows us to turn back the clock. Thanks to this operation,you will look 10 years younger. The outline of the face is reshaped and yourskin will be firmer and will have a youthful sparkle. You are younger and it shows!

A face lift allows a light correction of deeper wrinkles. The nasolabial crease and the grimace are from then on less obvious.

To correct more superficial wrinkles, a peeling, laser treatment or “fillers” are more tailor made (see the paragraph on wrinkle treatment)

Tummy Tuck

Skin can lose its elasticity due to the ageing process or in cases of major weight loss. This leads to excess skin on the lower stomach. The stomach hangs. Sport can reinforce the abdomen but can never make up for this surplus of distended skin.

A correction of the abdomen, also called abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’, can help you to resolve this problem. This operation leaves a scar in the fold above the groin and around the navel. These scars are acceptable because this operation allows you to lose one or more clothes sizes and you also get a beautifully sculpted waistline in exchange.

Job Title:

Biography:
Licensed as a general surgeon in Belgium from 1996, lic 45651 (Medical Council Brabant/Belgium). Licensed as a full surgeon (General Medical Council England) from 2005 ref.6135672 Licensed as a full surgeon (United Emirates, Dubai)from 2004 Licensed as a doctor in Ireland from 2007. I studied in the medical school of the University of KULeuven from 1983till 1990 and I passed first class with great distinction. I studied six years from 1990 till 1996 general surgery with Dr D. Claeys in Ghent who is still one of the leading laparoscopic surgeons in Belgium. The last two years of my training were specific for laparoscopic and oncology surgery. I worked in1993 one year in the Sint Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein in The Netherlands one of the most famous hospitals for thoracic and vascular surgery. I started there the thoracoscopic program. I started as a general surgeon ( with the sub-specialisation of advanced laparoscopic procedures) in 1996 inAZ Jan Portaels hospital in Vivoorde ( near Brussels), Belgium. Very soon became the surgical treatment of morbid obesity a major part of my work. I operated more than 4500 obese patients with laparoscopic adjustable silicone banding and laparoscopic bypass operations. I used most of the available gastric bands in Belgium. They all have a CE accreditation. I started to work at The Emirates Hospital in Dubai () from may 2004. I was asked to start the laparoscopic adjustable Silicone Banding program and now we are one of the fastest growing surgical obesity services in this field in the Gulf region.

Biography:
Chris de Bruyne has been a General Surgeon in Belgium since 1996 (licence number 45651 - Medical Council Brabant/Belgium) and has also been registered as a full surgeon in the UK with the General Medical Council since 2005 (6135672).  He is the most experienced and successful Gastric Band surgeon in Europe. The complication results are published across Europe so all surgeons in the UK know that Chris de Bryune has the lowest complication rate for the gastric band procedure. He worked for a year in 1993 at the Saint Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands. The Hospital is one of the most famous hospitals for thoracic and vascular surgery and Chris began work there on the prestigious thoracoscopic program. He also worked as a general surgeon (with the sub-specialisation of advanced laparoscopic procedures) in 1996 at AZ Jan Portaels Hospital in Vivoorde (near Brussels), Belgium. During this time, the surgical treatment of morbid obesity became a major part of Chris’ work. Chris has operated on more than 9000 obese patients through either laparoscopic adjustable silicone banding or laparoscopic bypass operations. He has made use of a wide variety of gastric bands and will recommend the type best suited to the individual patient. All bands have a CE accreditation Chris has been doing pre and post-operative consultations for obesity surgery in Scotland (Edinburgh) London, Birmingham, Newport, Manchester since November 2005. When patients have the band fitted with our surgeon, 90% get to their ideal weight in a year. Studies have found that dieting alone is unlikely to lose weight. All of our aftercare can be done in the UK with our surgeon or a member of his surgical team. With aftercare, we work out at least £1500 cheaper than any UK provider, yet the operation is safer if you book with us. In General, the gastric band is a very safe operation, but with Chris de Bryune it only takes between 15-20 minutes to perform a very quick operation to improve your health for the rest of your life.
