What Is A Gastric Balloon?

A gastric balloon, a soft, silicone or polyurethane balloon, is a revolutionary non-surgical weight loss device designed to assist with portion control. It’s placed inside your stomach to create a feeling of fullness, therefore reducing overall food intake. Ideal for individuals seeking a less invasive method than traditional bariatric surgery, it serves as an effective weight management tool.

We offer three types of balloons including:

  • Allurion Gastric Balloon – a swallowable balloon that is placed without needing any anaesthetic or endoscopy.
  • BIB / Orbera Balloon – a 6 or 12 month balloon placed using endoscopy.
  • Spatz-3 Balloon – a 12 month adjustable balloon placed using endoscopy.

Why Choose a Gastric Balloon?

Choosing a gastric balloon offers several key advantages, foremost being its non-surgical nature which significantly reduces the risks typically associated with surgical procedures. This temporary and flexible solution, usually remaining in place for 4 to 12 months, is perfect for individuals looking for kick-start to start their weight loss journey. It has been proven effective, with many patients experiencing significant, life-changing weight loss that leads to a range of health improvements. A gastric balloon is more than just a procedure; it’s a crucial step towards adopting a sustainable and healthier lifestyle, supported throughout by our expert team.
