Gastric Band Success Stories : Gastric Band Surgery Before and After Photographs
Gastric Band Success Stories and before and after testimonials and with photographs from those who have undergone gastric band surgery make compelling reading for anyone considering going under the ‘knife’. But be careful – gastric band success stories are sometimes not all they may at first seem.
Surgical weight loss, as in gastric band surgery, offers hope to those who’ve pretty much given up in their own ability to shed weight. Many see it as the easier option. The Elite Clinic in Southern Spain has plenty of success stories along with selections of before and after photos of clients after completing the gastric mind band permanent weight loss treatment. The gastric band before and after photographs you see here help to paint many thousands of words!
Gastric band success stories, which include before and after pictures detailing weight loss achievements, tell the tale far more vividly than words alone ever can, which is why they are frequently used in the world’s press. Many professionals believe that with a bit more psychological input and guidance, the call for surgery might evaporate. But those simply thinking about it, seeing the massive physical change ‘bandsters’ (the name given to those who have a gastric band fitted) usually experience, may not feel there’s an alternative. They can’t – or think they can’t – lose weight for longer than a few weeks or months, and having repeated the cycle many times, decide to opt for what they think is the right solution: gastric band surgery. But there is an alternative that works without any of the side effects – the Gastric Mind Band, which offers a psychological based approach.
There is More to Gastric Band Surgery than Meets the Eye
Gastric band success stories. They appear to be all teddy bears and rainbows – have gastric band surgery, lose weight, and be slim and happy for the rest of your life. Become another statistic among the gastric band success stories! It often seems the formula is portrayed this way, doesn’t it? Of course a number of not-so-popular scenarios are seldom mentioned, like the effect that gastric band surgery can have your
Be aware, it’s not always the way, though. even bariatric surgeons say ‘weight loss surgery can speed success in achieving optimal weight’. Notice the phrase? Not achieve success, but speed it. The statement makes it clear, and implies that it’s up to how much the patient is prepared to put into the process, doesn’t it! Of course there are successes, people who’ve turned their lives around, shed the pounds, and rid themselves of weight-related illnesses. There are tales of marriages saved, wardrobes full of dull shapeless clothes discarded to be replaced by high fashion creations that suit slimmer figures.
If you are considering having gastric band surgery, instead of checking all the gastric band success stories in the UK, start looking for failures. The success rate published by the NHS is 74 percent, so does that mean that 74 percent of people achieve their dream result? No, actually it means that 74 percent of patients will have lost up to 50 per cent of the desired weight in two years, and that 10 per cent will develop long term medical complications.
However on the flip side of that success, it’s worrying to read how bad a contrast the failures can be. One of GMB’s clients is a former gastric band patient whose band failed so spectacularly she says she was near death more than once. She, like hundreds of others, turned to our non-surgical alternative, retraining her relationship with food, to turn her life around.
And you only have to see our very own before and after pictures to realise surgery really isn’t necessary. It’s a choice, not an inevitability. With the Gastric Mind Band procedure there is of course no surgery, no risk of MRSA, no general anaesthetic, no hospitalisation, no restricted foods, no extended waiting periods, and of course it comes at a fraction of the cost. Before you make the decision to go under the knife you owe it to yourself to check out the stories of the hundreds of people from around the world who have visited the Elite Clinic for our Gastric Mind Band permanent weight loss treatment.
Gastric Band Surgery – Understand the Process
Gastric Mind Band clients benefit from the considerable research and development that went into the GMB method. The developers, Martin and Marion Shirran, have now built up more than eight thousand one-to-one clinical hours, over the past ten years, working with people who fly to the clinic from around the world, each determined to achieve their ideal body weight. At the end of the GMB treatment each client leaves the clinic with his or her own set of carefully prepared tools; most are completely unique to the GMB treatment, including a very extensive manual for life, and a set of individually studio produced digital recordings of each of the sessions. And don’t ever forget there can be no fear of a return to the old yo-yo dieting scenario. This is a permanent solution.
At the Gastric Mind Band clinic we are totally committed to following up our clients, and on-going research and development. We are proud that we offer the most thorough answer to those wanting a lifelong solution to their weight problems, in fact it is now often referred to as the Gold Standard in permanent weight loss.

Martin and Marion Shirran, the developers and trademark owners of the Gastric Mind Band procedure, have since been featured in just about every newspaper and magazine in the UK. They also travelled to the United States to be interviewed on the two largest US TV news channels. Their Gastric Mind Band treatment has now become something of a phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic, developing into the treatment of choice by members of the public, and celebrities alike. The procedure they developed has since gone on to be the subject of the book, The Gastric Mind Band, published by Hay House.
