If you’re feeling defeated and ready to give up on your weight loss efforts, you’re not alone. Many people who try to lose weight on their own face the same frustration. This struggle happens because obesity and the body’s response to weight loss are much more complicated than they seem. Research shows that individuals with obesity have a slim chance of achieving a healthy weight without medical help

Today, we are going to talk about two possible sources of weight loss help without surgery and what you can expect after 6 months with a gastric balloon, including results from Orbera and Spatz3.

Endobariatrics Provide Weight Loss Options Without Surgery

These days, people who need medical help to lose weight have the advantage of non-surgical alternatives to traditional bariatric surgery. Endobariatric procedures like endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and intragastric balloon treatments are becoming more sought-after because they are gaining more publicity on social media as patients share their stories of weight loss. These non-surgical options – like the Orbera and Spatz3 gastric balloons, can help you lose three times more weight than with diet and exercise alone.

How Does Weight Loss Work With A Gastric Balloon?

The Orbera and Spatz3 weight loss balloons can help you overcome many obstacles that have prevented you from losing weight in the past. Using these non-surgical options can help you jumpstart your weight loss journey and learn how to make healthier lifestyle choices. The published 6-month gastric balloon results show significant weight loss progress, where patients not only shed pounds but also maintained their success through permanent lifestyle changes.

A gastric balloon program helps patients lose weight through two key strategies: using the weight loss balloon tool and making permanent changes that promote weight loss.

The Endoscopic Installation Of The Balloon

The Reveal doctors use an endoscope to install the gastric balloon in a quick 20-minute procedure. The endoscope is a thin, flexible medical tool equipped with a camera and light. It is gently lowered down the patient’s throat while they are under light sedation. The hollow middle of the endoscope allows the doctor to insert a deflated medical balloon through it to reach the stomach.

Once it is placed in the correct location, the doctor fills it up with liquid saline until it gets about 5 inches in diameter. Once in place, the doctor removes the endoscope, and the patient is placed in a comfortable room where they will be observed for a short time before being discharged to go home.

The balloon occupies most of the available space in the stomach, helping you control your portions and causing the stomach to empty more slowly. This keeps you feeling full longer. These work together to help you consume fewer calories and lose weight.

Learning Healthier Habits And Making Changes

The gastric balloon stays in your stomach for 6 to 9 months before being removed. However, the support program extends for another six months. Many people see substantial weight loss within the first three months of having the balloon, and those who follow the program’s guidelines can maintain a steady weight loss even after the balloon is no longer in place.

While the balloon remains in their stomach, patients participate in a doctor-supervised program focusing on the importance of nutrition and identifying harmful habits that contribute to weight gain. After the balloon is removed, they are encouraged to stick to the program, avoid unhealthy behaviors, and establish new, healthier lifestyle routines. Most patients with obesity need to make substantial and permanent changes to their diet and behaviors to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

How Many Pounds Can I Lose With A Gastric Balloon?

The amount of weight you can lose with a gastric balloon can vary significantly from person to person. Factors that can influence the number of pounds you can lose include your starting weight, any weight-related health issues, and how well you adhere to your program. This includes a well-balanced low-calorie diet, regular physical activity, and other lifestyle changes that promote weight loss.

On average, the 6-month gastric balloon results can range anywhere from 10% to 15% of the individual’s total body weight. The exact number of pounds will vary depending on their starting weight, but it typically ranges between 20 and 30 pounds.

Key Benefits Of A Gastric Balloon

Both the Orbera and Spatz3 balloons are safe and effective medical interventions for weight loss. One of the key benefits of this type of intervention is that it is temporary. The balloon is eventually removed from the stomach, and no permanent changes have been made to the stomach or digestive system.

Another benefit is that there is no surgery involved in placing or removing the balloon. The procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure, so there is no hospital stay, and you can avoid the risks and complications that can arise after surgery.

Additionally, patients learn life-long skills and strategies that can help them make informed and healthier lifestyle choices to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
