Who Is It For?
A intragastric balloon is especially suitable for those patients who need to lose a considerable amount of weight before another surgical operation and require professional help. It can also help slightly obese clients who have repeatedly failed to lose weight on a diet plan and it also helps clients before an aesthetic operation in cases where the operation itself cannot ensure the ideal result and the patient needs to reduce their weight first. The balloon is introduced for a period of about six months.
Patients with gastric balloons typically experience around 20 and 30 % weight loss (10 – 20 kg). However, the amount of weight lost by each patient will vary depending on individual circumstances.
