Pre sales was good but then never heard from them again

1 50 Gastric Balloon

I opted to go with this clinic for my gastric balloon. The pre sales service was good and everything happened as planned when I travelled to Brussels for the procedure. However, as soon as i paid them on arrival, they checked me into the belgian hospital and i have never heard from them again. Everything was meant to be paid for but i also now have the belgian hospital chasing me for a further 100 euros!
It has now been over 12 months since i had the gastric balloon put in and i have never heard from them once......i have had to get the balloon taken out on the NHS!

Dear Stuart, Each month we organize aftercare clinics in Bangor for all our patients. We didn't see you once there for advice, diets,weight control, follow-up.... We can't force patients to come but it is up to you to make use of this Free aftercare service. The extraction of the balloon is even included in our price but you need to contact us and not the other way around. I regret we 've to hear from you this way as we're the only organisation that actually come to your home country to organize follow-up.The 100€ is an administration fee that you don't need to pay for as this was post to you accidently. Kind regards, the BSS team

My surgeon did a fantastic job

4 50 Tummy Tuck, Breast Implants

Tummy Tuck Breast Implants

I'm a 36 year old mum of 4 and as you can imagine after 4 babies my body changed but drastically. With every pregnancy I gain 4/5 stone and lost it again within the year following the birth of each child. My children have all been breast feed which left my boobs a little deflated to say the least. I saved for a few years whilst doing some research on different clinics. I decided to go with Belgium Surgery's after reading reviews and speaking with them ...I had my consultation and a few weeks later booked for my tummy tuck and breast enlargement!

The hotel was beautiful and the actual hospital was very warm welcoming and very very clean! My surgeon did a fantastic job despite some complications which saw me being rushed back to theatre. Doctors and nurses all spoke English perfectly and my nurse was really lovely,she made it clear she was my nurse and I was to call her for anything! I only have one down side to my entire journey......i chose this company because of the reviews etc but also because of the aftercare they provide in my town. I received no aftercare to the point that I had to remove my own stitches...(the person who was to visit my town to see their patients...including me and my stitches had supposedly broken their leg!) which mentioned 3 weeks later my stitches had still not been removed and the solution I was offered was for me to travel 9 hours to a doctor that works with them (out of my own pocket!) this for me when have been impossible! But that said if you aren't worried about the after care then Belgium Surgery's are amazing.

An excellent experience to date

5 50 Gastric Bypass • Paid: £7021

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.

Excellent all round

5 50 Gastric Bypass • Paid: £6379

Mini gastric bypass

My treatment went absolutely perfectly. The care I received was second to none, no faults or flaws at all. I had 2 supporters who travelled with me who were also put up in the hotel and transferred from airport to hotel. The staff at this clinic were excellent and so friendly and I seriously don't think I would have received this level of care at home. I had the mini gastric bypass which, to date, I am pleased with. I honestly could not rate Belgium Surgery Services high enough on the scale as it would be well above it. Just excellent all round and very pleased with pre and post surgery.

Bariatric Surgery Consultation

Bariatric Surgery Consultation - Belgium Surgery Services - Belfast

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

£3382 - £3682

Gastric Band

Gastric Band - Belgium Surgery Services - Belfast
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

£5951 - £6379

Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass - Belgium Surgery Services - Belfast

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.

£4923 - £5565

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve - Belgium Surgery Services - Belfast

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.

Christiaan Debruyne

Registration Number:
Job Title:
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.

Chris Debruyne

Registration Number:
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.
