Intragastric Balloon System
The American Psychological Association reports that the most frequently mentioned reason for individuals not being able to make healthy lifestyle changes is not having enough willpower. Additionally, weight loss systems achieve varying results. Successful weight loss is defined as losing at least 10% of one’s initial body weight and not regaining it within a year. By this standard, failure rates for diets alone fall in the 801-95%2 range.
These facts have encouraged people around the world to search for a solution to their weight loss dilemma.
Worldwide, the gastric balloon is a clinically accepted tool in reducing excess weight, and has been used successfully in Europe and Asia for the last 30 years.
The Adjustable Balloon System is a non-surgical treatment for weight loss that will help you regain control of your weight. Used in harmony with a professionally supervised program of behavior modification and diet, it can help you achieve and maintain the health and aesthetic benefits associated with weight loss. The unique Intragastric Balloon allows both adjustments of the balloon volume and longer implantation time of 1 year – unavailable with any other intragastric balloon.
Comparable weight loss therapies typically require a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or higher. Our gastric balloon therapy requires a minimum BMI of 27, making our procedure a viable weight loss option for individuals who may not be ideal candidates for similar forms of bariatric surgery.
