The gastric balloon procedure has been proven to help patients lose weight. Patients who received this procedure have lost more weight than patients who just received diet and exercise counseling alone. Patients with the gastric balloon procedure lost an average of 3 times as much weight as patients who only received diet and exercise counseling.
Unlike weight loss surgery, which is a major inpatient, anatomy-altering procedure, the gastric balloon is non-surgical, and is performed as an outpatient procedure. To ensure that weight loss is sustained, patients will benefit from the support of professionals who can help make healthy eating, fitness, and lifestyle habits a permanent part of your life. This customized approach takes personal schedule and habits into account to help create a healthy, long-term plan.
