Christmas Leftovers

Ah, yes, Christmas and New Year`s. A time for celebration. A time for family and friends. A time for love and goodwill. A time for…getting fatter?

According to an article published in The Independent, the average Christmas dinner in the UK contains roughly 6,000 to 7,000 calories, compared against a recommended daily intake of 2,500 for men and 2,000 for women—an appreciable difference. And, of course, it`s not just the one dinner. It’s also the daily caloric increases in the form of snacks that accumulate over the weeks to manifest as fat stores on our bodies.

A seemingly ever-present and endless stock of confectionary delights is paraded before us, beckoning us, enticing us to take just one more bite—a little nibble here, a nibble there. Too often, we surrender to temptation.

For individuals of a certain constitution, this indulgence may be perfectly allowable. They can lose what few pounds they have gained come the new year. But what about the rest of us? What about those of us who put on flesh far too easily and already have more than enough? The price we pay for our indiscretions is reinforcement of bad habits and putting greater distance between ourselves and our ultimate body composition goals.

'So, if obesity is something you contend with and you’ve already over-indulged during the past month, what can be done? Well, first things first: consult your physician on a diet and exercise plan appropriate for you and commence with it, post-haste. This is the first priority and, frankly, a no-brainer.'

That said, if you feel you have already exhausted the more conventional avenues to get your weight under control, there are people who specialise in this sort of thing and procedures that can help. If you’d like to learn more about these and how we can assist you, please visit our website or get in touch directly. We`d be glad to hear from you.

Tuck Yourself In: The Post Weight-Loss Abdominoplasty

Frequently, after you’ve experienced substantial weight-loss, whether by diet and exercise or bariatric intervention, the welcome reduction in body fat brings with it something decidedly less welcome: loose, sagging skin. As with most things, however, there is a solution. In this case, the abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck,’ as it is affectionately known, fills the bill.

Although there are several variants, the main procedure comes in two basic forms: partial and full. Both entail the removal of excess skin and a tightening of the abdominal wall by means of sutures, but differ is in the extent to which these adjustments are made. Each may also be combined with liposuction to enhance overall results. Candidacy for either mini or full abdominoplasty is, of course, determined by individual requirements and goals, and your doctor will help you decide on the best option for your body. . Learn more.

Voices of Medical Travel: Testimonial of the Month
Lucy, UK, Gastric Balloon, September 2018

‘From making an enquiry with medical travel through to the procedure being carried out, I found the whole process very seamless and my co-ordinator Hana very informative and always on hand to offer some friendly advice, even with directions.

The clinic really was spotlessly clean, and my private room lovely and comfortable. Everything was explained to me in really good English, and the nurses were friendly and professional in carrying out all necessary medical checks prior to the procedure.

JessicaThe procedure itself went very smooth and was over in just a few minutes with a little recovery overnight at the clinic, where I was checked on regularly and monitored. The clinic made sure that I was not discharged until they were 100% happy with my progress.

I am now two weeks on from having the procedure and doing really well, eating small liquid/soft meals, and have lost 8 lb. in 2 weeks, which is a great result, especially as I suffer from PCOS and struggled to lose just a few pounds with diet and exercise.

If I knew it was this easy I would have done it years ago. I now look forward to a healthier future and would definitely recommend Medical Travel for their expert knowledge and friendly approach.’
