Types of weight loss programs in Singapore
Medical weight loss refers to the process of losing weight using clinically proven solutions backed by medical specialists or bariatric doctors. There are two categories: invasive and non-invasive.
Invasive medical weight loss often refers to surgeries targeted to help obese or morbidly obese customers to lose weight. These procedures include gastric bypass, gastric bands and gastric sleeves, done with the aim of controlling the patient’s food intake by permanently reducing the stomach size.
A popular non-invasive weight management solution involves intra-gastric balloons like the swallowable weight loss balloon and endoscopic intra-gastric balloon. These methods are great for those who aren’t keen on going under the knife. The endoscopic intra-gastric balloon requires the patient to go through an endoscopic procedure, which involves inserting a long and flexible tube through the oesophagus to inflate the gastric balloon into their stomach.
As for the swallowable weight loss balloon (available at DeFATO Hub), this quick and easy fix that takes just 20 minutes. An easy-to-swallow capsule, which is attached to a catheter, contains the deflated balloon. After swallowing it, the doctor will take an x-ray to make sure that the capsule is in place. The balloon will then be filled up with fluid via the catheter. After this, the doctor takes a second x-ray to make sure that the balloon fills up properly. Upon confirmation, the tube is gently detached from the balloon and placement is complete.
After four months, the gastric balloon will deflate and move out of your bowel system naturally. The weight loss balloon aims to help you feel fuller, which in turn helps you control your food intake and eventually results in body weight loss of 10 to 15 percent. If you continue to sustain a healthy lifestyle, the weight loss can carry on even after 12 months.
The all-rounded weight loss program at DeFATO is a detailed process that begins with a consultation with an advisor. This step helps the team to evaluate if you’re eligible for the program. After relevant health screenings, you have a physical consultation with a medical specialist; this gives you a clearer understanding of the clinical program from a professional.
A nutritionist is readily available to craft out your personalised diet plan for weight loss and management, while taking into consideration your food preferences and allergies. DeFATO Hub aims to improve your diet with the slightest changes possible. Following the nutritionist’s diet plan, you can arrange a one-month meal prep service to arrive at your doorstep. Full marks for convenience!

Success stories: hear from two happy customers!
“During last year’s circuit breaker, I put on so much weight. Because I was working from home, I wasn’t as active, and I also kept snacking. When the circuit breaker ended, I weighed the heaviest at any point in my life at 78kg. I tried all sorts of diet and exercise to lose weight, but it didn’t work. I decided to try out DeFATO Hub’s program as a final resort.
What I like about DeFATO Hub is that I didn’t need to worry about anything at all. They supported me in every way, from meal prep to fitness plans, and even a lifestyle coach. Diet-wise, they didn’t restrict me from eating my favourite nasi briyani, which was surprising! I thought I’d only be allowed to consume salads and chicken breast, but instead they focused on having a balanced diet and making changes to my current lifestyle. This opened my eyes to a more sustainable way of weight loss. With them, I managed to lose 11kg after four months! I’m now 67kg, and I’m looking to lose a bit more.”
“I took DeFATO Hub’s basic program. I was 95kg for many years, but I’ve now managed to lose 15kg. I’d always wanted to lose weight, but I didn’t have the willpower to. The weight loss balloon from DeFATO Hub really helped to make up for my lack of willpower. The best part is that it’s clinically-proven and backed by doctors, so it’s a trusted method of weight loss.
I was initially a little concerned about the price, but after losing the weight, I feel so much better physically and mentally. I’m even thinking of getting another balloon put in! My weight loss journey made me realise that my health is an investment, not an expense. I have no regrets. My money was definitely well spent.”
Prices for DeFATO’s weight loss program in Singapore starts at $499 per month. For more information, visit defatohub.com.sg.
