Weight Loss

Do you want to lose a lot of weight and have you already tried everything? Then a weight loss surgery at Wellness Kliniek may be a good solution.

There are several types of stomach reduction procedures, such as a gastric bypass, the Mason gastroplasty, a gastric band, the Scopinaro surgery and the gastric pacemaker.

At Wellness Kliniek, we always tailor the treatment to the patient, looking for the best and safest operation to suit you and your body. In most cases, the preferred option is the gastric bypass.

Safe stomach reduction at Wellness Kliniek

At Wellness Kliniek, safety is of paramount importance. That's why we always discuss with the patient which stomach reduction operation best suits their body and health. If necessary, we conduct additional medical examinations. After all, the body must be able to tolerate the operation. By examining the health condition thoroughly and using only the best specialised surgeons, we can go for the best result.

Types of weight loss surgery

Looking at the types of weight loss surgery, there are numerous options, including the gastric bypass and the gastric sleeve, as well as the gastric band and the gastric balloon. Is it a question of local fat accumulation? Then liposuction is a better solution. As said, we will look with you to see which procedure is best for you. We will tell you more about it below.

Gastric bypass

A gastric bypass is a good choice for overweight people who are at risk of health problems as a result. For example, because you eat a lot of sugar and carbohydrates and are finding it difficult to stop. Have you tried numerous diets without the desired result? Then you can put an end to your excess weight with a gastric bypass.

During gastric bypass surgery, the size of the stomach is reduced to about the size of a shot glass (15 to 25 ml). A small stomach pouch is created, as well as a new gastric outlet. The small intestine is partly repositioned (hence the name bypass) and the duodenum is reconnected. As a result, the digestive system is modified. As a result, you will be able to tolerate less food and you will eat less, while the digestive system remains healthy. You will eventually lose some 70% to 80% of your excess weight.

Apart from the fact that you will feel satiated more quickly after a gastric bypass procedure, you will also suffer less from acid reflux. In addition, it is in most cases the best option for people with diabetes or high cholesterol. A gastric bypass is often the most effective procedure for significant weight loss.

Gastric sleeve

With a gastric sleeve, the stomach is reduced in size in the form of a sleeve (hence the name). After this operation, your feeling of hunger will be considerably reduced and you will be able to lose about 70% to 80% of your excess weight, allowing you to return to a healthy body weight.

The difference between the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass is that with the sleeve, the small intestine and the stomach sphincter are kept intact, making the operation slightly less extensive. This operation is more likely to be chosen if your cholesterol is good, you do not have diabetes and you also rarely suffer from acid reflux. In short, the choice for a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve depends on your body and digestive system.

Gastric ring - Gastric band

With a gastric ring, also called a gastric band, a kind of elastic band is placed around the stomach, making it smaller. As a result, the body can absorb less food and you feel satisfied more quickly, which means that on average you can lose about 15 kilos. The tension of the gastric ring can be adjusted over time, or the gastric ring can even be removed completely.

At Wellness Kliniek, gastric surgery is preferred, as the effects are often better in the long run. Of course, you will be advised extensively, so that together with the doctor you can come to the conclusion which operation suits you best.

Gastric balloon

A gastric balloon can also help you lose around 15 to 20 kilos on average. A soft, liquid-filled ball of silicone is placed in the stomach, giving you the feeling that your stomach is fuller and you therefore experience less hunger. It is removed after six months, which means that you have to drastically change your eating habits and stick to them even after this period to avoid gaining weight again.

A gastric balloon is certainly not always the best option in the long run and can be seen more as a stepping stone to a healthier lifestyle and body weight. After all, after the removal of the gastric balloon you have to remain mentally very strong and not fall back into your old eating pattern. At Wellness Kliniek, we don't recommend this technique, but rather opt for gastric surgery for both short and long term success.


Do you suffer from local fat accumulation, for example in the legs, hips or stomach? Sometimes, despite various diets and (strength) exercise regimes, it is just not possible to get rid of excess fat in certain areas. In such cases, weight loss surgery is not the best option, but (local) liposuction is a better idea. Liposuction allows for specific treatment of certain areas of the body in order to get rid of excess subcutaneous fatty tissue.

It is a good option for ladies who aspire to certain body curves. There is also the option of liposculpture, whereby the fat cells can be reused to emphasise other parts of the body (e.g. natural buttock augmentation or breast augmentation with one's own fat).

Food intolerance test

If you are obese, have a bloated stomach and fluid retention and still can't get rid of it despite strict dieting, it could be that you suffer from food intolerance. In this case, a blood test could be the answer, to find out exactly what you are intolerant to. A change in diet can therefore lead to fewer complaints in the area of fluid retention, obesity, but also other complaints such as painful joints, gastrointestinal complaints, migraines and diabetes mellitus type 2. Talk to our doctors to find out which foods are good choices for your health and a balanced weight.

What can you expect from a stomach reduction?

Depending on the procedure chosen, the operation will proceed differently. Of course, we always discuss this with you in detail, so that you know in advance what to expect. Gastric surgery requires you to stay at least one night at Wellness Kliniek, so that we can monitor you closely after the operation. Fortunately, complications are rare. You will be bandaged with post-operative bandages and you will be largely recovered within two weeks of the operation.

It is important that you follow the doctor's advice after the stomach reduction surgery. In this way, recovery will be promoted and you will be able to resume your daily activities as soon as possible. You will also come back for more consultations so that the recovery process can be monitored properly. You will need to adjust your diet in response to the operation. You will receive extensive advice about this. You can ask for support from a dietician.

How much does a stomach reduction cost?

At Wellness Kliniek, we strive for transparent pricing, so you can consider whether an operation is within your budget. The current rates can be found on our treatment prices page. Because we perform many treatments per year, we can keep our costs low. Moreover, we always operate safely with the shortest possible operation time, as this promotes recovery. After a stomach reduction you will eat less than before, which means you will save on food costs in the long run.
