How does it work?
The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is a medical grade, saline-filled gastric balloon that rests in the stomach cavity and decreases appetite by occupying approximately a third of the stomach volume. In addition, with the gastric balloon in place, the stomach empties more slowly, keeping you feeling full longer.
The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is inserted during an outpatient procedure that takes about 20 minutes and is performed under sedation. No incisions or hospitalization required. Youll be home within a few hours.
The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is a tool to aid weight loss and will yield the best result when used in conjunction with diet, exercise and a behavior modification program.
The amount of weight you lose will depend on how closely you follow your diet and adopt long-term lifestyle changes. Average weight losses of 16 kg after 6 months and 25 kg after 12 months are reported with the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon. Depending on your initial weight and your motivation, significantly greater weight losses have been achieved.
