We put you at the centre of everything we do. From your initial consultation with one of our specialist bariatric (weight loss) surgeons, through to your procedure and aftercare, we’ll only ever recommend what’s in your best interests.

Our story

1.

3.

Tonic was founded as a family-run business, drawing on over 40 years of experience and driven by a passion: #GivingBackLives.

Since then, Tonic have partnered with a team of weight loss experts, becoming the UK’s leading weight loss surgery provider.

We are now a well-established centre of excellence, providing weight loss surgery at our clinics situated across the UK, in Manchester, Salford, Birmingham, Kent, Derby, Leeds, Luton, Leicester and Central London. 

All our surgeons are NHS consultant specialist bariatric surgeons with a plethora of experience and knowledge in the field of bariatric surgery. All operations are carried out in private local hospitals, meaning there’s always an option for surgery near you.

Our patients have become a part of our family (we still keep in touch with almost everyone, even after the 5-year aftercare is complete!). 

If you’re considering weight loss surgery, we’d be delighted if you’d become a part of our ongoing story, joining thousands of happy patients who have taken back control of their lives. 

Our Pledge to You

At Tonic, our patients come first, no matter what. 

We’ll never suggest weight loss surgery unless it’s 100% the right decision for you, and we’ll be with you throughout the process.

This is the Tonic vision:

Teamwork

We work together as a close-knit team, from our consultants to our surgeons, our dieticians to our nurses, successful delivery of weight loss surgery relies on our team coming together, which is something we’re incredibly proud of.

“I have struggled with my weight all of my adult life, I have PCOS and every diet I have tried just wasn’t successful.

I have lost over 10 stone and I feel absolutely incredible. I would never have dreamt to have the life that I currently have now.”

Paul

“Life before surgery was fake, I had a happy face but was not really happy. I wouldn’t go on lads holidays with my friends or take my kids swimming. 

I have lost over 10 stone and it’s been life changing. I have got my life back. I can now take my kids swimming, go on holiday, do those things that I should have done 10,15,20 years ago.”

Danni

Weight Loss

“Before I had surgery, I’d always yo-yoed with my weight. I was ashamed because of the size I’d gotten to. I was unable to buy the clothes I wanted to wear. I didn’t feel like the person that I wanted to be nor did my reflection match the person I felt inside. 

The surgery with Tonic has absolutely changed my life. I’ve lost 5 and a half stone, and I am more confident and outgoing.”

Chanelle

Weight Loss

“Before weight loss surgery, I couldn’t cope with doing anything strenuous and I couldn’t spend time with my children in the way I wanted to. My eating was out of control, and I had been yo-yoing. 

A year out from surgery, I’m a completely different person. Last year, my body fat percentage was in the morbidly obese category. Now, I’m in the healthy weight category.”

Claire

Weight Loss

“I lost 8.5 stone. I feel like one of the gym girls, I have done a 10k this year and I am signed up to Brighton half marathon next year! I chose Tonic because I saw so many success stories online and because of the aftercare package. You have the dietician, the PT, the psychotherapist and the constant support group from others who have had surgery and the team in the office”
