As gastric balloons become a more popular alternative for weight loss procedures, we wanted to keep you informed on the recent developments in the market.
How do Weight Loss balloons work?
Gastric balloons are inserted into the stomach to take up space and cause the stomach to empty much slower than usual. In doing so, your stomach retains food for much longer by sending signals that your stomach is full, helping you to lose weight! Weight loss balloons, like the Spatz3, can be inserted during a short 15-minute procedure with no incisions or hospitalization. Within an hour you’ll be discharged and on your way home, making the procedure one of the safest bariatric surgery options.
There are two different types of gastric balloons:
Adjustable balloons and Non-adjustable balloons.
Adjustable Balloons, like the Spatz3, allow for either an increase or decrease to their volume size, while non-adjustable balloons are a one-size-fits-all system. As an adjustable system, the Spatz3 is proud to hold both the highest overall success rate and the highest weight loss of any gastric balloon.
Gastric Balloon Volume Increase
By increasing the volume of the balloon, you can extend the treatment effectiveness throughout the entire treatment process. By the 4th month, the body adjusts to the balloon and begins the weight loss plateau, with many patients starting to regain weight. With the Spatz3 volume adjustment, patients can continue losing weight throughout the entire process. As the only adjustable balloon on the market, the Spatz3 is the only balloon to offer the unique feature of a volume increase.
Gastric Balloon Volume Decrease
1 out of 10 patients are intolerant to the balloon treatment, and require a balloon removal. With the Spatz3, patients can avoid early removal of the balloon by decreasing its volume size, making the treatment possible for 10% of patients who otherwise would not be able to receive a gastric balloon.
With an adjustable gastric balloon, like the Spatz3, patients have a higher chance of reaching their weight loss goals without having to worry about the possibility of early removal.
The Spatz3 Holistic Weight Loss Program
As the only adjustable balloon on the market, oftentimes people will assume the balloon does all the work. However, that is not the case. To receive optimal results from the Spatz3, one must take the necessary strides to transition towards a healthy and more active lifestyle. For example, starting to diet and exercise is an excellent compliment to your balloon and will help you drop excess body weight faster than ever before! With over 70,000 successful balloon placements throughout the world, the Spatz3 is the most effective balloon procedure to meet your weight loss goals and build healthy long term habits along the way.
