Am I a candidate for a gastric balloon?
A gastric balloon can be a suitable option for individuals who require weight loss before undergoing another procedure or prefer a non-surgical approach to weight loss. To determine if this procedure is appropriate for you, it is recommended to consult with one of our professional doctors for an evaluation.
Do I have to follow a special diet?
In addition to following a transition diet that starts with liquids and progresses to solids, there are usually few dietary restrictions after a gastric balloon procedure. However, it is common for doctors to recommend a strict diet to help reduce the risk of regaining weight.
How long will recovery be?
After the procedure, patients typically leave the hospital on the same day and can usually resume their normal activities within three days. Your weight loss specialists will provide guidance on the appropriate diet and exercise regimen to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Is it possible to regain weight after the balloon is removed?
Losing weight can be a challenging process, and maintaining a healthy weight after the gastric balloon is removed requires lifestyle changes. Without a proper diet and exercise program, there is a risk of regaining all the weight lost during the procedure.
