If you want to lose weight for good and have looked into surgery, then take a step back before you decide to put your body through the stress and trauma of a major operation. Our Gastric Mind Band treatment is one of the most popular alternatives to gastric sleeve surgery. Here’s why it’s a much better option than going under the knife.
What is a gastric sleeve?
We hear so much about weight loss surgery in the media, but what most people do not know is that there are many different procedures. The three most common types of weight loss surgery are a gastric band, a gastric bypass and a gastric sleeve. We’re focusing on the latter in this blog. A gastric sleeve is where a large part of the stomach is removed so it is much smaller than it was before, so you’ll feel full quickly and eat less.
There’s no going back
A lot of people assume that all weight loss surgeries are reversible, but that’s actually a misconception. The only procedure that can be reversed is a gastric band – a gastric sleeve is permanent. So if you run into problems after your surgery and wish that you had never gone ahead with it, there’s not much that you can do. That’s why more and more people are looking into alternatives to a gastric sleeve.
You won’t have to put your life on hold
Having a gastric sleeve operation means having to take time off work, putting your social life on hold and getting used to a whole new way of eating – often with pretty unpleasant side effects. So why opt for major surgery when there is another solution? Our Gastric Mind Band is one of the most popular weight loss alternatives to a gastric sleeve, and it’s easy to see why. There’s no pain, no long recovery period, and no need to take time away from your job.
No hard work beforehand
If you want to undergo weight loss surgery, you’ll often need to lose weight and undergo many medical and psychological tests beforehand. There’s no need for any of that if you lose weight with us. Just get in touch with us to arrange your treatment – either at our centre in Spain or by Skype sessions – and we’ll be able to put together a series of sessions for you. We take care of all the hard work so that you don’t have to.
The Gastric Mind Band is a great alternative weight loss treatment to a gastric sleeve because there are no risks of serious complications afterwards. Blood clots, wound infection, a leak in the gut and a blocked gut are all possible side effects of a gastric sleeve. There is even a small chance of malnutrition and death. There are no such risks associated with our treatment, as it’s totally non-invasive. It changes the way you think about food, so it’s a long term fix that will help you lose weight at a safe, steady level.

We pioneered the Gastric Mind Band treatment, putting together a programme that took elements of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as many other elements of psychology. We remain the most trusted provider of weight loss treatments without surgery, and our care and commitment to those undergoing treatment is unparalleled.
