Do you need to lose anywhere from 20-60 pounds but just can’t seem to make it happen with diet and exercise and other conservative measures?* Now there is a safe, affordable and proven method to achieve your goal in a short time period. This method is attractive to many people because it does not require surgery.
The stomach balloon has 20 years of history as a successful non-surgical weight loss solution. It starts with placing a soft balloon in your stomach to reduce your hunger and encourage portion control. It is combined with a one-year coaching program to help you keep the weight off.
The balloon is inserted into your stomach through the mouth. This is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure. The patient is under sedation during the procedure. Once the balloon is in place, it is filled with saline. The space occupying balloon in the stomach slows the passage of food through the stomach which reduces your hunger. The balloon must be removed after six months. Generally patients can expect to lose about two pounds per week during that six month period. This procedure is FDA approved.
