Testimonial's from people who have had this surgery:

"I have struggled with being overweight for most of my adult life. When I found out about weightloss surgery I made an appointment with Habib. From our first consultation through to post-surgery I can confidently say that Habib is one of the most professional and caring surgeons I have met. I didn't feel the need to get a second opinion as I was so comfortable being in his care and I knew I would get the outcomes I desired. My surgery was very successful and my recovery speedy. This is attributed to Habib's high level of skill and experience in this field. He genuinely cares for his patients and is passionate about losing weight and moreso, achieving a healthy, active and happy lifestyle. If asked, I would do this again in a heartbeat. I am only a few weeks post-op but already feeling so positive and looking forward to a happier, healthier me. Thank you Habib for giving me the opportunity to turn my life around !" A.J.


"At my fathers 60th birthday celebration I saw a close family friend for the first time in 6 months, I knew she had undergone a “gastric sleeve resection” but never would I have imagined how fabulous she would look. The following day I booked an appointment to see Habib. Little was I to know how this amazing man was going to change the rest of my life! Habib has a passion for his patients and for what he does, this is clear in his pre and post op care. He will treat you with total respect and honesty and will give you all the support and guidance you require. 14 months on, and 40 kilos off, I am a changed woman. I love life more than I have in a very long time. Not only do I look amazing and feel great, but I am happy, healthy and active. Habib is a very humble man, and I don’t think he will ever truly understand the difference he has made to his many patients. I only wish I had met Habib sooner!" J.D.
