The Gastric Balloon is a unique and effective non-surgical weight loss program. It is an outpatient endoscopic procedure performed by our bariatric surgeons. The Gastric Balloon is unique in that it’s not a stand-alone diet, not surgery and not a diet pill. It has been a clinically accepted weight loss treatment internationally for many years.
The Gastric Balloon is a soft, expandable intragastric (inside the stomach) device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach. It provides a six-month kick start to healthy weight loss and is an ideal solution if you are looking to lose up to 10-15kgs* of excess weight but are fearful of surgery, fed up with diets, pills and other weight loss programs that just haven’t worked. It requires less work up and leads time compared to other bariatric procedures and operations. It is something to consider if you need help controlling your appetite or looking for an easy way to kick-start your weight loss?
The Gastric Balloon combines two effective therapies that combine to get you started on your weight loss journey.
- Part 1 of the program is designed for the body to lose weight.
- Part 2 is to help you manage your hunger, boost your willpower and change bad habits.
During those six months (and beyond) you will work together with our support team of weight loss experts on a personalized plan that is designed to:
- Overcome the challenges of retraining your appetite
- Help you to adopt new nutritional habits
- Establish a reasonable exercise routine
- Help you succeed and stay motivated
Experience demonstrates that the majority of a person’s weight loss typically occurs during the first three months of treatment. After that time the presence of the intragastric balloon plays a supportive role in helping you to maintain your new nutrition and exercise habits prior to removing it after six months.
The Gastric Balloon Managed Weight Loss Program can provide you with the tools to alter your eating behaviour, to start an exercise regime, and to keep you on track, but how much you lose depends on your level of motivation.
*Weight loss results vary from person to person.
