Weight loss patient testimonials

"It's the best decision I've ever made, 10 stone lighter and never felt better"
Charlene, gastric sleeve, 2013
Fiona, 2014 Edinburgh 

Fiona had a sleeve gastrectomy in December 2011 with Mr Andrew de Beaux, she said of the procedure ‘Thanks to the team at the Murrayfield I lost nearly 7 stones and am now maintaining my healthy weight and feel so much better. The support offered is really amazing.’ Following her weight loss, Fiona then had a tummy tuck September 2013 with Mr Patrick Addison and a breast uplift and reduction, assisted by Mr Hilal Bahia in April 2014. She said ‘Following my weight loss, I had some excess skin that was uncomfortable. The plastic surgery procedures that I had in 2013 and 2014 allowed me to complete my journey to a happier, healthier lifestyle.’


I lost 10 stone after having weight loss surgery 2 years ago. I decided to have weight loss surgery after I was refused the knee replacement because I weighed too much. I started gaining weight some 20 years ago after sustaining serious injuries from a fall whilst window cleaning. My weight increased as I couldn’t exercise as I did before my accident. Now that I’ve had the surgery, I’m just delighted with the results. I look great, my health has improved and for the time being, the knee op is on hold!’ 


My weight crept up gradually over the years and made it harder for me to carry out my mobile hairdressing business. My weight has always fluctuated and I’ve struggled to keep it down despite numerous attempts through dieting. You name the diet, I’ve tried it! Despite my best efforts to lose weight, it just didn’t shift. Rather than live a life with obesity, I decided to be proactive and have weight loss surgery. After losing 9.5 stone I’ve never looked back…and I look great too!


I dropped 7 stone after this amazing procedure 2years ago.  The staff were brilliant throughout the entire process and operation, answering any and all of my questions.  The opportunity to have this operation was easily the best single decision I have ever made and I would recommend to anyone with health concerns to make that initial contact and explore what a better future can look like. I have to try clothing on as I still don’t believe my waist size!



I tried desperately to lose weight for years in order to undergo a kidney transplant operation that I need to live. Having tried dieting and exercise without success, I decided that surgery was right for me. I am now 7 stone lighter and am now eligible for my kidney transplant which should hopefully go ahead later this year.
