Gastric Balloon Non Surgical Treatment
Lasting Results Through the Gastric Balloon Weight Loss Procedure
One common result of popular weight loss options is that the weight eventually returns. That is true even with gastric surgery procedures that have been presented as the best weight loss solution available. In fact, a study published in the American Medical Association’s journal JAMA Surgery, examined long-term effects of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and its conclusion was that after five years, nearly half of patients experienced significant weight gain.
Today, however, there is the gastric balloon weight loss procedure, a non-surgical approach to weight loss that has shown to be three times more effective than diet and exercise alone.
The Gastric Balloon Weight Loss Procedure: Non-surgical and FDA-approved
The gastric balloon weight loss procedure, also known as intragastric balloon weight loss, is a simple concept: A board-certified surgeon places your balloon into your stomach through the mouth, using a minimally-invasive endoscopic procedure. Once in place, the balloon is filled so that it expands and takes up space in the stomach so you feel full and have less desire to eat. The procedure takes only about 15 minutes.
The balloon stays in your stomach for just six months while you participate in a 12-month supervised nutrition and exercise program.
Intragastric balloon weight loss works because it is a 12-month, supervised program that does more than help you lose weight, it actually helps you re-evaluate your relationship with food and teaches you how to make healthier nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices.
