Weight Loss clinic

Dr Free and his team have assisted several thousands of people achieve fantastic weight loss results leading to a much healthier & happier life.  When you come in for your free consultation, Dr Free will discuss your particular goals, and all of the currently available options, such as medications, intragastric balloon, and surgical options for weight loss.

There are many different options for weight loss available to patients, and each has its own particular components. The most common surgical procedure performed is the sleeve gastrectomy, however Dr Free performs many surgical and endoscopic procedures, as some options would be ideal for some patients and not suitable for others for a variety of reasons.

Allurion Gastric Balloon

The Allurion Balloon is balloon that is placed in the stomach which decreases appetite and oral intake. The Allurion Balloon process is more than just a Balloon, it’s a 6-month medical weight loss program that helps you readjust your mindset towards food to sustain your weight loss, for your long-term health.  The 6-month Allurion Program includes the Allurion Gastric Balloon, personalized follow-up from our specialist weight loss team and nutritional guidance throughout the entire program. 

Additionally, you will receive the Allurion Connected Scale, the Health Tracker, and access to the Allurion App, which will help us track your weight loss progress more efficiently.  There is no anaesthesia, surgery or endoscopy required for its insertion, a capsule that contains the balloon attached to a thin tube is swallowed under the guidance of experienced staff & Dr Free, it is then filled, and an X-Ray is performed to ensure its correct placement.

We understand that surgical weight loss can be expensive for un-insured patients, however we have specific processes to dramatically reduce the cost whilst still maintaining excellent results and safety standards.

We look forward to seeing you for your free, no obligation consultation.
