Why you should choose us for your surgery

We know that deciding on Weight Loss Surgery as the way to deal with your obesity problem is something you only come to when you have tried all the conventional ways to lose weight and they have not been successful for you. You may have been able to lose weight through diet, but haven’t been able to sustain the weight loss. Opting to have surgery is a major decision, and one which requires a lot of thought. You need to be sure surgery is the right choice for you, and that you are ready for the changes it will bring. We believe it is essential that before you make your decision you understand as much as possible about the surgery, how it works and what we do to enable you to have safe surgery and successful weight loss afterwards. No surgery is a magic wand – it doesn’t do all the work for you, but it is a marvellous tool to enable you to lose weight and sustain the weight loss easily -you will have to work with it to get the best results. We will help you to do this.

If you arrange your surgery through us with Dr Cierny in Brno you will have more detailed pre-operative tests and a longer stay in the clinic than you are likely to have in the UK or elsewhere. We believe this is essential to ensure your surgery is safe and your recovery is properly monitored. Don’t worry! You are not left to fend for yourself in unfamiliar surroundings. We will be in Brno with you during your stay and we will be there for you to look after you and help you through all the various steps you have to take, before and after your surgery, and we will give you all the support you need when you return home.

  • We make sure you are FULLY  INFORMED to enable you to make the right decision and choose the surgery that is right for you.
  • We make sure you are FULLY PREPARED for your visit for surgery
  • We ACCOMPANY YOU on your trip to Brno for your surgery, and we are there in the clinic with you to help you
  • You have FULL MEDICAL TESTS  the day before your surgery (not just blood tests and an ECG) to make sure your surgery will be as safe as possible
  • You stay in the clinic THREE DAYS AFTER SURGERY so the team can monitor you and make sure you are safe and fully recovered to go home
  • We SUPPORT AND MONITOR YOU for a whole year to make sure your weight loss after surgery goes according to plan – and you can contact us at ANY TIME for help and advice.
  • The standard of medical care and support you will receive from Dr Cierny’s clinic and from us is on a par with the VERY BEST – ANYWHERE IN EUROPE AND THE U.S.

The problems of being overweight and all the associated risks and damage caused by obesity to our general health are dramatically increasing in the U.K. Obesity levels have tripled in England over the past two decades, and now official statistics show that approximately 20% of British adults are clinically obese. (with a B.M.I. - Body Mass Index - of over 30)

Many of us who are overweight have tried in vain over the years to lose weight. We are bombarded with all kinds of diets, pills and products that promise success - often these products and diets are extremely expensive, and they just don’t work long term, so we end up blaming ourselves for our “failure” to make them work!

Almost all studies show that diets very rarely succeed long term in helping us to achieve lasting weight reduction. How many of us dieters have suffered the yo-yo effect, gaining back more than we lost after we finish with the diet. Successive failures to lose weight can cause us deep psychological problems and create very low self esteem.

Statistics show that it is extremely difficult for those of us with severe obesity to achieve long-term weight loss with dietary or behavioural modifications alone.

Statistics also show that a surgical weight loss procedure (Bariatric Surgery) is the ONLY way for most of us with a severe obesity problem to correct our weight and regain a normal stable weight for a sustained length of time.

Surgery in itself is NOT a magic solution, but it is the tool which can allow us to bring about those changes to our diet, to our whole relationship with food and to our nutritional health that would be impossible by any other means.

Whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery or not depends on many factors, and one of the most important is your B.M.I. – your Body Mass Index. The IFSO (International Federation for Surgery of Obesity) set strict guidelines on the levels of B.M.I below which surgery is not allowed, and these criteria have been adopted by the UK Government Health Advisory Body, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE).


Please check your B.M.I. on our calculator and keep it in mind when considering the procedures we offer.

Obesity Surgery is, of course, available on the NHS, by referral from your GP to a bariatric surgeon, but the vast majority of those who meet the BMI criteria will find local health authorities will be unable to fund surgery, and will set much more stringent criteria for surgery in an attempt to direct their very limited financial resources to the most urgent cases.

Because of this, the vast majority of Weight Loss Surgery patients are forced to seek a surgical solution to their obesity in the private sector. Some prefer to arrange surgery close to home in the UK, but the costs can be EXTREMELY high, Many seek surgery abroad.

We believe the standards of care we give, the way we inform and prepare our patients for surgery, and the safety of surgery we offer are second to none, and we believe our approach, in terms of accompanying patients through their surgery in Brno, and maintaining contact with them after they return to the UK is the best way to ensure a safe and trouble free experience of obesity surgery, and long term weight loss success after the operation.

The weight loss solutions we offer are all carried out in Brno in the Czech Republic, as are all our cosmetic procedures. The reasons for this are simple.

The levels of expertise, training and competence of medical and nursing staff in the Czech Republic are extremely high in relation to the U.K., and amongst the very best anywhere in Europe.

The hospitals and clinics we have carefully chosen as partners are modern, very well equipped with state of the art technology and compare most favourably with the best Private facilities here in the U.K., yet they provide affordable top quality care and treatment – with friendly English-speaking staff dedicated to your comfort and well being - AT A FRACTION OF THE COST YOU WOULD BE MADE TO PAY AT HOME.

The levels of secondary infection in the Czech Republic are VERY LOW. MRSA, C.Difficile and other hospital-spread infections are a major worry for anyone considering elective surgery in the U.K. The rates of MRSA in the Czech Republic are less than half those of France and Belgium, and just a fraction of those in the U.K. Scrupulously clean, clutter-free hospitals and clinics, careful nursing and patient handling regimes and a commitment to take all necessary measures to avoid secondary infections ensures your safety in our partner clinics and hospitals.

For all obesity treatment Cosmetic Bliss is proud to work in exclusive partnership with the renowned and highly experienced Bariatric Surgeon Michal Cierny MD. PhD. All obesity procedures are carried out at his clinic in the beautiful city of Brno, second largest city in the Czech Republic and a delight to visit. In addition to his surgical experience, Dr. Cierny is responsible for the founding of the “Bandingklub” in Brno. This is a patient support association to help provide a forum and give information to obese patients who have undergone Weight Loss Surgery or who are interested in bariatric surgery. This has been so successful that the idea has spread and there have been similar groups with the same name forming all over the Czech Republic. If you wish to visit the Bandingklub website you can do so here. The range of weight loss procedures comprise:

Further information on these procedures can be found on the relevant pages, where you will be able to choose which option may be most suitable for you. You will make your final decision, of course, in consultation with Dr Cierny after he has evaluated the information you have provided.

Please remember that a (British) representative of Cosmetic Bliss will always be in Brno to meet you at the hotel and to accompany you to the clinic for your procedure. We will visit you afterwards too – making sure everything goes well for you. We feel this is really important - to give you support and to make you feel at ease during your stay.

Careful pre-surgical evaluation by our Bariatric team, to ensure your suitability for surgery, the selection of an expertly performed surgical procedure that is right for YOU (because we are all individuals with different needs), and the support of continuing after care following your procedure will enable you to achieve the weight reduction you seek, and to become more healthy slim and fit – long term!

Once you have read the information we provide please do not hesitate to call us for an informal discussion, when we will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.
