One of the most important concerns for any individual seeking surgery is that of safety and regulation. This issue has been brought to light recently to a large degree by cosmetic interventions which remain unregulated.
On the other hand, weight loss surgery is subject to guidelines, team specifications and outcome measurements which are designed to ensure that the individual will be treated fairly and surgery only performed when indicated. There are multiple parameters that Weight Loss Surgery teams must adhere to, to ensure safety and excellent long term outcomes. The professional bodies that are involved in regulation include NICE, BOMSS, and the Royal College of Surgeons. Armed with this knowledge, trust your surgical team to do what is best for you.
