Gastric ByPass Testimonial from Sam T to Tullia Law

Testimonial to Tullia Law Gastric-Bypass-surgery

Dated 25 Feb 2011

Hi Tullia

Just a few words to thank you for all your help and support towards my Gastric By-pass surgery.

I had the surgery on 25/10/2010 with a pre-op weight of 269lbs and now weigh 215 lbs on 24/02/2011.

Before the surgery I was Type 1 diabetic using 300+ units of Insulin and 2000mg of Metformin daily to try and control my Diabetes, without much success I may add.

Since the day of the operation I have not needed any Insulin at all and only use up to 1000g (2 tablets) of Metformin, this alone justifies wholly the operation never mind the added bonus of losing weight..being a lot fitter..able to now buy clothes off the peg and knowing they will probably fit (well mostly, still some strange sizes out there lol)

I cannot praise the medical care I received enough in Belguim, the surgeons and medical staff could not do any more to make me feel at ease before and after surgery, even to the point of visits to my hotel after leaving hospital and phone calls when I returned home....try getting that with Private care (in the UK) never mind the NHS in the UK.

Tullia Law alone deserves special praise for supporting me and organising everything despite having a very personal bereavement during the time leading up to my operation.

Due to my bank 'losing' my initial fund transfer I ended up having to pay twice to ensure my desired date was booked and have to thank Tullia for the prompt repayment to my account as soon as the missing money turned up in their account ( 2 weeks later...so much for banking efficiency ).

In short my experience has been very favourable and have no reservations recommending this to anyone.

Best regards

Sam T

Gastric Band Testimonial From Stella Perkins for Tullia law

For Tullia Law
Gastric Band Surgery in Belgium

From Stella Bate
20 February 2011

I decided after much consideration and research that Gastric banding was the option for me. Then after much research I found ‘The French cosmetic surgery’ company. I spoke to a few people that had undergone surgery with them and found this very useful to be able to answer my questions.

As a nurse I am aware of the risks associated with surgery and infections and wanted to make sure I was choosing the best option.

I was really pleased to hear that the hospital had never had any cases of MRSA or other superbugs, and after attending I can understand why. The hospital has people cleaning all the time. There was even a man going up and down all day on what looked like an indoor road sweeper.

As with any surgery I had some discomfort and nausea after surgery. As soon as you ask for something to help it is there within a few minutes. There was no waiting around for them to sort out the medication. Not all the staff speak English fluently but there is always someone around who does.

Overall my experience was very pleasant and the hospital was extremely clean and efficient. I felt fully informed and have no concerns or reservations about recommending it to others.

Testimonial From Jackie Carr for Tullia Law

To Tullia Law

Testimonial 8 Feb 2011

Dear Tullia

When I made the decision to have gastric band surgery, I didn’t know where to start. I made dozens of enquiries in the UK and abroad and chose French Cosmetic Surgery (Lazer Clinics (France) Ltd) because they offered such personal attention and understood what a big discussion it is too choose any kind of surgery.

They have been so friendly and listened to my individual needs, tailoring a package that was right for me.

I’m delighted to have lost almost all of my excess weight so quickly and feel fantastic. For the first time in years, I can say that I am a normal weight.  I have a normal BMI, normal blood pressure,  my joints don’t ache any more,  my general health is better than ever, and I am enjoying life to the full.

I can’t thank French Cosmetic Surgery enough for finding me the right surgery, the right surgeon and after care to meet all of my needs.

No fuss, they just gave me the information I needed and put me in touch with real former patients who gave me the benefit of their genuine experience.

I received excellent care and attention at every step of this amazing journey and should I choose further procedures, I would definitely use French Cosmetic Surgery again.

Testimonial from Nicola Durrant for Tullia Law

Testimonial for Tullia Law

from Nicola Durrant

Dear Tullia

I would like to say how pleased I have been with the care I have received pre & post band.

The whole experience has been fantastic and I would recommend your company without doubt to anyone considering having surgery.

I was a little sceptical about having the procedure carried out in a different country but I can honestly say that any doubts that I had were dismissed after speaking to people who had had the procedure in Belgium and then going there and having a gastric band fitted in October last year (2010).

To date (Feb 2011) I have lost 35 lbs and feel on top of the world.

I can recommend French cosmetic Surgery (Laser-Clinics-(France) Ltd) as a provider and would deffinately use them again in the future.

The hospitals they use are spotless and the staff are lovely and can't do enough for you.

I hope this testimony helps anyone out there considering surgery and using French Cosmetic Surgery as their provider.

Yours

Nicola Durrant

Testimonial from Bob H to Tullia Law

To:-  Tullia Law

Dear Tullia Law

Thanks for all of the assistance that you have shown me. I really appreciated you "holding my hand" through the decision I made to have the Gastric band fitted. I am now 3 1/2  months on from the band being fitted and I firmly believe I made the right decision.

The day of the band fitting I weighed in at just over 19st.

Today I weigh 16st 2lb.

I have felt that the loss to date was painless. The hardest part for me has been the re-education of my eating habits as my brain has found it hard to adjust to my stomachs new size. But I am getting there slowly.

Only another 3 stone to go!!

Furthermore I would like to praise the aftercare I have received from Chris Deprez. As I explained to you prior to surgery,  I spend most my time out of the UK due to business therefore I was concerned about how I would get my fills.

Chris has been totally flexible and has organised fills for me around my schedule.

The fills themselves are totally painless. I enjoy meeting up with Chris who treats you as a friend and puts you totally at ease.

I have enclosed for you the picture that kick started my desire to take drastic action.

I will send you an after photo in the next couple of weeks.

Kind regards

Bob

Since I have had this operation my life has changed completelty.

I wanted to have this kind of operation for a long time but I wanted to be sure of the surgeon as I did not want anything to go wrong. It is only by chance that I came to know that Dr. Jacque Guiset has this wonderful reputation.
"I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. Now when I go swimming or to the beach I have only admiring glances as my Breasts are so natural looking, and for a woman this is very important."

I cannot thank Dr. Jacques Guiset and Tullia Law enough, he has changed my life and made me completely happy..

An Explanation of the BMI Calculator

In the mid 1800’s Belgian scientist Adolphe Quetelet developed the Quetelet index, which is known today as the body mass index (BMI). This statistical measurement compares a person’s height and weight and is a useful tool to identify weight problems within a population or for an individual. Though a BMI Calculator cannot measure the actual percentage of body fat, its ease of calculation makes it a popular diagnostic tool for health experts.

The body mass index is defined as an individual’s body weight (in kilograms) divided by the height (in meters) squared.

For imperial units, the formula is modified as follows:

Height in Inches: [weight (lb)* 703] / [height (in) * height (in)] Height in Feet: [weight (lb) * 4.88] / [height (ft) * height (ft)]

Body mass index was always intended to be a general guide for health professionals. However, doctors must consider other factors on a case-by-case basis. For example, muscle density, bone density, and ethnic origin can skew the results of a BMI Calculator. For a general guideline, the body mass index is broken into separate categories outlined below with the corresponding BMI: Severely Underweight – Less than 16.5 Underweight – 16.5 to 18.5 Normal – 18.5 to 25 Overweight – 25 to 30 Obese Class I – 30 to 35 Obese Class II – 35 to 40 Obese Class III – Over 40

Using the BMI Calculator, a health and nutrition survey in 1994 found that 59% of American men and 49% of women have a body mass index over 25.  In America individuals with a BMI higher than 40 are considered morbidly obese, which accounts for 2% of men and 4% of women. A more recent survey in 2007 shows an increase in America’s weight, with 63% of Americans considered overweight and 26% in the obese category. For individuals who are underweight, a BMI close to 15 is an indicator of starvation, and 17.5 is an informal indicator of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa.

It is very common to consider the BMI Calculator in the medical underwriting of private health insurance plans. Providers will use a high BMI as a cut-off point to raise insurance rates or deny coverage. Furthermore, the BMI is often used by surgeons to determine if a patient qualifies the Gastric Band procedure. Typically, doctors are looking for a BMI of 35 or higher when considering potential candidates. Each case should be considered on an individual basis, but the BMI calculator does serve as a useful tool.
