Which weight loss surgery is the most effective and safest?
Question by Kyran’s Mummy♥: Which weight loss surgery is the most effective and safest?
I’m 18 and weigh around 220 pounds (16 stones.). I have always been overweight and then I had a baby and it got worse. I have tried literally everything and me and my mum must have spent at least £1500 in weight loss programmes, pills, gym memberships etc. I want to lose 80-90 pounds. (6 stones)
I have really slim legs and they’re probably the only part of myself that I like, so I’m thinking I would only want fat removed from my stomach, arms and maybe neck. Because of this, I think liposuction may be the best as I can pick where I want the fat removed from.
Gastric Bands/Bypasses/Balloons all sound so scary and risky and I have read in several places that there is a 1 in 40 death rate for the bypass!
I’m not big enough to qualify for the band on the NHS, and simply can not afford the nearly £8000 most places charge. So, what are your opinions on surgery abroad?
I’ll tell you my issues with each surgery and you can tell me what you think;
Lipo – Results just don’t seem very effective. I also worry that because it is a removal of fat and not something that stops hunger, it may be easy for the fat to just build back up again? I would obviously try my hardest to keep it from coming back, but it hasn’t worked for the last 4 years so I’m a bit worried.
Band – Cost and Risk? What are your opinions?
Bypass – Same as above?
Balloon – Same worries as Lipo as it gets removed after 6 months.
I just want something that works. If I am going to be spending thousands of pounds on something, I want to look at myself and think “wow!” and it be so noticeable that other people comment.. and I don’t want to be waking up every day being scared that I’ll be leaving my son because I’m going to die or something crazy!
I really don’t know what to do. Any help appreciated

Lipo Suction only takes away four pounds of fat, and it can come back if you eat to much. I personally think the best thing to do is go on Weight watchers, it makes more sense than anything and you can do it on line, and the food is good also.I agree with you about the danger of Band,Bypass and Balloon. I had the Balloon done many years ago and of course with my luck the balloon burst inside and had to be removed that was very dangerous and didn’t even work for me.I wish you the best and hope that you decide to go on weight watchers.
