Weight Loss Without Surgery Stories. Bariatric, or weight-loss surgery, is becoming increasingly more popular, as the global obesity pandemic escalates. There are many different, surgical options. These range from the reversible procedures, such as the gastric balloon and the adjustable gastric band, to the more invasive, and irreversible, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass options. Unfortunately, many people fail to ask enough questions before selecting the surgical option. It does not come with a 100% success rate. Often however, people mistakenly think that surgery leads to guaranteed weight loss.

Surgery is Not The Easy Option

For those looking for an easy way to lose weight, surgery is a popular choice. However, selling surgery as the easy option really is misleading. Surgery itself poses a number of risks, and the road to recovery can be very long and painful. Sometimes the procedures themselves are unsuccessful, and can result in devastating complications. Also, at times, it may be necessary for the surgeon to reverse the procedure. So, rather than being a quick and easy way to lose weight, weight-loss surgery can end up setting you back even further.

Doctors often market weight loss surgery as the miracle solution, particularly for those who have never managed to lose weight and keep it off. However, it can be incredibly painful and disruptive, it is not always successful, and a number of people experience weight regain. The main downside to surgery is the potential risk of side effects and complications. And, on top of that, weight-loss surgery doesn’t come with a 100% guarantee of success! You should also be aware that when you are obese, the general risk of complications during surgery, and having a general anaesthetic, is much higher.

Another downside that is very real, but something that people don’t talk about too much, is the psychological effect on the individual, and their immediate family. Christmas Dinners may never be the same, nor will family holidays. Bariatric/weight-loss surgery really is not the solution is portrays itself to be.

Mechanical Bulimia

There’s a relatively new, so-called weight loss without surgery technique on the market. It is described as non-surgical, reversible, FDA-approved, and you don’t need to make any effort, or follow a specific diet for it to work. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? So what is this amazing thing? The process is called aspiration. It’s a device that the surgeon fits under “twilight anaesthesia”, in just 15 minutes, as an outpatient procedure. Basically a thin tube is placed in the stomach, and this connects to a button fitted on the outside of the body. And how does this help you to lose weight?

Well, 20 minutes after you eat, you go to the bathroom and connect a hand-held device to the button. The device will suck out 30% of the contents of your stomach, which then goes down the toilet! Critics have described it as “mechanical bulimia”. Choosing My Weigh Less is a completely safe, non-invasive, and effective way to go, and surprisingly providing similar success rates. Weight loss surgery is a relatively new invention, but people have successfully achieved weight loss without surgery for many years.

Top FAQs

FAQ 1: Do surgical weight-loss treatments work?

Answer: This is not as easy to answer as you may think. Yes, surgical interventions work, but often no more so than many non-surgical options. Many people think that the surgical operation provides guaranteed weight loss, but that’s not the case. As an example, the Surgical Gastric Band has a success rate of around 65 per cent. So, for 35% of people, after taking the risk of having surgery, they will not lose the expected weight.

FAQ 2: What are the risks of weight-loss surgery?

Answer: As most people are aware, surgical intervention involving a general anaesthetic has an increased risk of complications, if a person is overweight. The recovery time is often substantially longer, and additionally, if a person is overweight, the risk of wound infection is dramatically increased.

FAQ 3: Is weight-loss surgery a guaranteed way to lose weight?

Answer: No, weight-loss surgery is not a guaranteed way to lose weight. It comes with risks and potential complications, and it doesn’t have a 100% success rate. People may experience weight regain or other problems after surgery.

FAQ 4: What other weight-loss methods are available that work as well as bariatric surgery?

Answer: There are plenty of different weight-loss methods available nowadays, but My Weigh Less is a particularly popular option. Over a thousand people have travelled around the world to complete the treatment developed by Martin and Marion. It has been featured on TV around the world and is the subject of two bestselling books. Their work is endorsed by two of the top psychologists in the world. On the site, you can read a full Medical Endorsement and link to a Clinical Evidence page…It works.

FAQ 5: What are the psychological effects of weight-loss surgery on individuals and their families?

Answer: Weight-loss surgery can have significant psychological effects on individuals and their immediate families. It can change the way people experience events like Christmas dinners and family holidays, which may never be the same after surgery.

FAQ 6: What is the “aspiration” technique for weight loss without surgery?

Answer: The “aspiration” technique is a non-surgical, reversible procedure where a surgeon fits a device in the stomach. This device allows individuals to remove 30% of the stomach’s contents 20 minutes after eating by connecting to a handheld device. Some critics have referred to it as “mechanical bulimia.”

FAQ 7: Are there non-surgical alternatives for weight loss?

Answer: Yes, there are non-surgical alternatives for weight loss. Technology and apps, such as smartwatches and weight loss monitoring apps, can help individuals track their fitness, diet, and exercise.

The programme incorporates an updated version of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, TCBT, which is the subject of our bestselling book, published globally by Hay House.

Let me give you a couple of examples: the programme will allow you to make a number of simple cognitive changes in your thought processes…small changes that deliver ‘massive results’. For example, think for a moment how different your relationship with food would be if we re-programmed your subconscious mind to effortlessly replace the word “want” with the word “need”? The result, imagine you are out having dinner with friends, and after ordering a burger, instead of hearing the waiter asking: “Do you ‘want’ fries with that?” without thinking, you hear and automatically process the question as: “Do you ‘need’ fries with that?” Things would be very different, because at a cognitive level, we process those words differently. Later, maybe the waiter says, do you ‘want’ another glass of wine? You, of course, hear and cognitively process the word stream as do you ‘need’ another glass of wine. You can watch an animated video explaining ‘Want and Need’ and how it works at the bottom of this page.

Another ‘fix’ in the programme relates to just why people eat. So, during the programme, you will be asked when was the last time you ate in response to actual, physical hunger. Most people say: “Thinking about it, I haven’t been physically hungry for years”. And so we ask them: “Do you ever eat when you are bored, stressed, tired, lonely, depressed, sad, to reward yourself, when watching TV, or maybe just to please someone else?” Then, we do another reset, and so it goes on…
