Complete Weight Loss Solutions
Your Support Team
At CWLS, you are supported by our caring & experienced team right from the start of your weight loss journey Melbourne. We understand your decision to undergo weight loss surgery is not an easy one and can provide you with a welcoming & supportive environment. After surgery, we can help you learn, heal & understand your changes to adjust to your new eating habits to ensure you have the best possible outcome.
Alongside our surgeons, our support team includes physicians, nurses, a psychologist, and dietician, as well as a meditation & spiritual counsellor to support you along the way.
Support & Success
Losing weight can be a challenge but at Complete Weight Loss Solutions it is about a gentle life changing experience.
We understand that it is not only about weight loss. Todays’ over emphasis on body image can carry great emotional pressure. Then there are the added pressures of work, family and business, only to name a few. All need to be considered.
Complete Weight Loss Solutions treats everyone as an individual and that is where our support begins. We aim to identify your personal needs and this is why we have developed a way to help through gentle guided meditation.
We want to take care of our patients before, during and after their procedures. The offer of help is always there – you are never on your own.
Trust us to help you find your way.
