The benefits of the gastric balloon procedure will most readily be experienced when combined with a proper diet.

With this goal in mind, we are pleased to be able to offer you a customised nutrition programme, which includes recipes tailored to your personal tastes, Skype coaching sessions, and general advice on weight management. Incredible though it may sound, you’ll find that a healthy diet can actually be quite delicious.

 

The six-month programme costs 350 EUR / 300 GBP and includes:

- A personalised 14-day diet plan, with simple and tasty recipes to get you started on the right path

- Ten Skype sessions with our certified and experienced nutrition coach

- Tips and tricks on a healthy diet, cooking, and more

 

We know maintaining a healthy weight can be a challenge, but, together, we can make it a piece of cake. Our coach will support you and help you find the most appropriate and efficient plan to lose body fat and keep fit. Get rid of those pounds forever!

How does it work

MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE

Please fill in as much information as possible, and we will get back to you with an evaluation of your questionnaire by one of our doctors. 

 

DEPOSIT PAYMENT

Once an agreement has been made for the proposed dates, prices, and surgeon who will perform the procedure, the next step will be to pay the deposit to the clinic account. The deposit is a 100% booking guarantee of your date. If you do not show up for the surgery without providing us with a reason, we cannot return the deposit back. Of course in the event that you are ill or if an emergency prevents you from keeping your date and you are able to notify us in a timely manner, we are able to find new dates for you and use this deposit to secure a new date.

The outstanding balance must be paid on the day of the surgery (we accept cash, credit cards, or a direct bank transfer into clinic account).

GASTRIC BALLOON (6 months) Orbera, Medsil

Gastric balloon is a soft silicone balloon which is placed into the stomach. Balloon works as a filling inside the stomach creating lack of hunger and feeling of fullness which will help to decrease your food intake and lose weight without additional surgery. This completely reversible procedure is considered minimally invasive and is introduced for a period of 6 months. As stated in all academic sources, the weight loses are 15-20 kg in 6 month. The final weight loss always depends on the previous weight of the patient.

The pre-operational checkup and the procedure are done in one day. Before the actual procedure, an endoscopic examination of throat, stomach and duodenum is done. The patient is able to leave the clinic within the first day after the operation. 

The balloon flows freely in the stomach, evokes the feeling of fullness, reduces the capacity of the stomach and by that lowers the food intake. Thanks to this mechanism, the patient looses weight. The balloon stays in the stomach for 6 months, during which the patient gets used to the new dietary restrictions and continues to follow these even after the balloon is taken out again.  

One of the biggest advantages of the gastric balloon is the use of local anaesthesia – injection and less intervening in the human body as would be with other bariatric operations. Gastric balloon procedure is performed under intravenous sedation and lasts approximately 30 minutes.

 

BALLOON SPATZ (12 months) Spatz3

Gastric balloon is responsible for the average weight loss 25-40 kg in 1 year. The final weight loss always is individual and depends on the previous weight of the patient. The saline-filled gastric balloon rests in the stomach cavity and minimalizes hunger in a safe way. The balloon stays in the stomach for 12 months, during this period the patient gets used to the new dietary restrictions and continues to follow these even after the balloon is taken out after one year. 

The surgery itself takes only 30 minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia. Before the actual procedure, an endoscopic examination of the throat, stomach and duodenum – the gastroscopy - is done. After that, the balloon is endoscopically inserted and filled with liquid mixed with special blue medical colour. The colour indicates a potential leak of the balloon by colouring the urine. In case of a leak, the patient can quickly look for medical help so the balloon can be removed. If the empty balloon moves along the digestive tract, it usually spontaneously leaves the body in a few days. After the period of 12 month the balloon is taken out endoscopically.

POST PROCEDURE CARE

Usually you’re on a liquid diet the first weeks. It is recommended to drink clear broth, tee, coffee, diet non-sparkling beverages, juice, yogurt, etc. Do not drink too much at once. It’s better to eat and drink more small portions than less and bigger ones. It’s generally believed to be a safe and reliable method. The risk factor is very rare.

The most frequent complication is the deflation of the balloon. This can easily be avoided if you follow the advice to have the balloon removed after 1 year. The disadvantage of the adiposity treatment with the gastric adjustable balloon is the limited timeframe of 12 months.

This period is proven to be long enough to get used to a new lifestyle and eating habits. Side effects such as heartburn, stomach aches, nausea or vomiting can occur in some cases right after the surgery. Most of these go away within 3-5 days after the procedure. In case of intolerance (2% with standard balloons) the SPATZ balloon volume can be decreased so the treatment can be continued. If a patient feels discomfort following the placement or the balloon does not adapt perfectly, it is always possible to readjust its size and therefore avoid an early removal of the dispositive.

After the period of 6 or 12 months the balloon is taken out endoscopically. By using special tools a small hole is made in the balloon so the liquid or air can get out. Then, the balloon is removed.  The risk of taking it out is very small. The most common complication is the spontaneous leak of the balloon in the stomach. This happens only if the patient does not follow the time limit of 6 or 12 months, which is also one of the disadvantages of this approach. Since the body has to get used to the changes, gastric issues as heartburn, stomach ache, nausea or vomiting can occur in some cases right after the surgery. Most of these go away within a few hours after the procedure. It is possible to take out the balloon immediately if they remain longer.
