Allurion Weight loss Baloon Patient - “I stood on the scales and I was mortified!”
Amy, aged 31 from Liverpool, underwent our Allurion Weight Loss Balloon procedure in March 2023.
After struggling with gradual weight gain after university, Amy realised that diet and exercise alone were not enough to help get the weight off.
Speaking about her cosmetic surgery journey Amy said: “After extensive research I came across the Allurion Weight Loss Balloon procedure. I did hours of research on the best consultations for this procedure and came across Mr Bassi, which was one of the reasons I decided to book a free, no obligation consultation at Pall Mall.”
The Allurion Weight Loss Balloon is the first gastric balloon that doesn’t require any surgery, endoscopy or anaesthesia for placement! What’s more, within your Pall Mall package, you’ll receive multi-disciplinary support from experts during your weight loss journey with an expert Surgeon, Dietician, Nurse and Patient Co-ordinator.
You’ll receive a set of digital weight loss scales, a fitness watch and an iPhone or Android app to support you on our weight loss journey. You’ll also receive care from our Pall Mall team including a pre and post-op appointment with a nurse and up to two years aftercare.
Amy continued: “On the day of my consultation, I stood on the scales and I was mortified at the number displayed. I was 20 stone and 2 pounds – the biggest I have ever been.
“I was so passionate about my weight loss journey and making a change to give myself a better quality of life, so during my free consultation I spoke openly with Mr Bassi and told him my story. He was really comforting throughout the whole consultation and provided me with hope that I could get the body I wanted. I was so excited about it all!
“After my consultation with Mr Bassi, I was certain that I wanted to go ahead.”
After your free of charge consultation, there’s a legal 14 day cooling off period for all patients before you can book your cosmetic surgery procedure.
“I was delighted with how quickly I got my procedure booked in within a couple of weeks. The finance options offered really suited my lifestyle too, which reassured me that this was the right option. The next steps were to book a pre-operation assessment in with Maxine, Pall Mall’s Outpatient Nurse Manager, to go through mandatory checks.”
