Your stomach operation at the Wellness Kliniek

The stomach operation procedure

After all the preliminary examinations have been done and your intake consultation has taken place you are ready for your operation.
It is important that you are well prepared for the procedure. We strongly advise that you be accompanied (by a responsible adult: friend /partner), the day before the procedure and the days after.

  • The day before the procedure you will take a laxative medication and a sleeping pill: this means that you will not be fit to drive yourself the next day.
    The laxative medication, Prepacol, (10 ml.) needs to be mixed with fruit juice and taken in the afternoon around 16.00. The 4 pills, which go with it, need to be taken with the evening meal. As a result you will experience about 5 bowel movements. At about 22.00 you take a Temesta 2,5 to help you get a good night’s sleep.
  • Important! From midnight, the day BEFORE your operation, you must not eat or drink anything. The sleeping pill and laxative medication will help with this as well as encouragement from the watchful eye of your companion/partner.

The next morning you present yourself at the clinic at the pre-arranged time.  

Day 1: Admission and operation

  • It is important that you present yourself on time at the reception.
  • After the procedure you are taken straight to a single patient’s room.

TOP destination : Premium Private Health Care in Belgium


All plastic surgeons and dentists are experts in their cosmetic field and are fully government registered in their medical specialty.

Wellness Kliniek Belgium stands for safe surgery. The hospital disposes of cabinets for aesthetic dental treatments, operating theatre rooms equipped with high-tech equipment for surgery, recovery care and private patient rooms.

Quality of care is assured. Wellness Kliniek Belgium carries the international standards organization quality certificate ISO 9001 / EN 15224 for all its medical and surgical activities. 

Rates are among the best in Europe and are all-care-inclusive, but they do not include any VAT. Since January 1, 2016, the VAT exemption for aesthetic surgery and treatments has changed. As a result of this change, the VAT exemption will be applicable only for treatments that aim at the 'medical care' of patients (and are as such included in the Belgian INAMI nomenclature). In the absence of such a target, 21 % VAT will be applied. Aesthetic dentistry remains exempt from VAT.

Planning your medical trip has never been easier! For people who have to travel a considerable distance, the clinic offers a unique Next-Day-Surgery service: your consultation and operation on consecutive days.
