Rating from 1 Review I’m very happy with everything and the treatment was fantastic value for moneyLaura, Belfast, 01 03 18

Enhance Medical clinic was my choice for breast implants. Not only were they close to my home, but they were also the only clinic that had before and after pictures online. It was great that have a finance option available too. I’m very happy with everything and the treatment was fantastic value for money. The clinic is lovely and clean, with wonderful staff. I really couldn’t fault anything in terms of service and treatment. The doctor gave me a rough price prior to the appointment. I went for a couple of follow-ups to have dressings changed and so forth. Everything was on track according to these check-ups. If I were to single out the best part of my experience, it would definitely be the doctor. He made me feel so at ease! I’ll definitely be going back again.

Rating from 2 Reviews I’m thrilled with the results I’m experiencingAnonymous, UK, 20 03 18

After doing a bit of research, I chose this clinic. I just had a good feeling about them. Initially, I wanted to have a gastric sleeve done, but Professor Kerrigan said a gastric bypass would be better for the amount of weight I wanted to lose and he also said it would help curb my cravings. I’m thrilled with the results I’m experiencing. I’ve lost 4 stone to date and I couldn’t thank Professor Kerrigan enough. If someone passes me a chocolate bar now, I easily decline it. It was 500 pounds extra to have the gastric bypass done, but it was worth every penny. The night staff had started their shift by the time I was out of theatre and they were superb. Everyone was so attentive. These friendly ladies never left my sight - one of them even moved her desk to my door and she sat there all night, watching over me. The only negative thing about my experience, is that there was no one available at the clinic to take blood. It was up to me to get the blood work sorted, and this meant traveling to the other side of Belfast. Whenever I have my check-ups now, I have to take an entire day off work to process everything before I can have my review done. Having a nurse at the clinic who could take blood, would be very helpful. Other than this minor problem, everything else was perfect.

Rating from 5 Reviews An excellent experience to dateHazel, UK, 26 10 14

mini gastric-bypass and gall bladder removal An excellent experience to date. I was contacted very quickly by the surgeon and offered a face-to-face meeting within a few days at a clinic in Bangor. I met the surgeon who was spoke perfect English and explained everything to me in great detail and answered my many questions thoroughly. Together we chose the best procedure to meet my particular needs. This meeting was not rushed, in fact I was with him for nearly an hour, but more importantly I did not feel in any way persuaded or pushed into making any decisions immediately, rather I was asked to take time and reflect before getting back to him. I feel very comfortable I have made the right decision to have surgery at the clinic in Belgium, I have confidence in the surgeon and although I could perhaps get the procedure cheaper at an eastern European country, I feel the price is well worth paying a little extra for superior care.

Gastric Sleeve £4973 - £5622
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.
Gastric Bypass £6011 - £6444
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.
Gastric Band £3416 - £3719
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
