BODYCRAFT, Leading Private Weight Loss Providers, Takes Control of Obesity with Integrated service.

Bodycraft, one of London’s leading purveyors of private weight loss surgery based at the prestigious Parkside Hospital in London, has extended its service to offer clients an integrated and holistic approach towards addressing obesity and excess weight gain using a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures. Combined with lifestyle and diet changes, Bodycraft’s procedures help protect individuals against a variety of health issues to support them to gain their self-confidence and take back control of their weight. With a commitment to combating UK’s obesity epidemic, Bodycraft provides a tailored service suited to clients’ individual needs and goals for successful and sustained weight loss.
Furthermore, each weight loss programme is powered by Bodycraft’s trademark in-depth consultation and an attentive after-care service by its team of credible and reputable surgeons.  Losing weight for combined health and psychological benefit is increasingly becoming the vital goal for those who struggle to overcome excess weight gain and the issues related to this. To address the psychological as well as the physiological implications of excessive weight gain and obesity, Bodycraft’s holistic weight loss services includes: 
  • Wide-ranging surgical and non-surgical procedures – all ‘gastric’ procedures including gastric bands, gastric bypass, gastric sleeves and body contouring such as tummy tuck, Male breast reduction (gynaecomastia), neck and face lifts
·         Methodical dietary advice and menu plans – bespoke meal plans and advice on healthier and nutritious food options. 
§  Comprehensive on-going support and after-care – friendly and enthusiastic specialist support staff and counsellors offering complete guidance through every crucial stage of weight-loss procedures. Bariatric surgery is one of the signature surgical procedures at Bodycraft and is recognised as a proven way to achieve significant and long-lasting weight loss. The industry-leading Consultant Bariatric Surgeon, Mr Marcus Reddy, who developed the South Thames Bariatric Service – the preferred provider for NHS bariatric surgery in the region – spearheads Bodycraft’s bariatric surgery team.  
Recent research suggests that up to 48% of men and 43% of women in the UK could be obese by 2030, adding an additional £1.9 billion per year in medical costs for obesity-related diseases such as cardiovascular issues, diabetes and various cancers if current trends are to continue. The growing diabesity epidemic is also testament to the growing health risks attached to obesity, as estimates suggest that by 2025 over four million people in the UK will have diabetes and in most cases Type 2 diabetes, one of the reasons being the rapidly rising numbers of individuals who are overweight and/or obese. 
The economic impact of obesity and excess weight gain in the UK is just as severe: UK’s obesity rate costs the National Health Service a staggering £4 billion a year. With talk of there being a double-dip in the UK economy, if housebound patients as a result of obesity and excess weight-gain were to have corrective surgery and return to work, this could give the UK’s economy a £1.8bn boost.
This is echoed by Prime Minister David Cameron’s recent proposal to introduce the “Fat Tax” in Britain to foods with over 2.3 per cent saturated fat
