How it works: 6-month intragastric balloon
The function of the intragastric balloon is quite simple: it reduces the capacity of your stomach so that you feel fuller more quickly. As a result, your food portions decrease, but without experiencing the hunger attacks of conventional diets. In principle, the intragastric balloon is a temporary stomach reduction method – only without surgery and the associated complications. In combination with a program tailored to your individual needs from our weight loss experts, your internal coach will guide you towards a more balanced lifestyle. You will quickly see that your achievements motivate you to continue. The initial principles from the balloon will become habits that you will maintain after treatment.
How you benefit from this treatment
No surgical intervention is needed within the scope of the 6-month intragastric balloon treatment, making the therapy flexible and low in risk. Apart from the intragastric balloon, no medication is required, thereby also eliminating any additional side effects. Through the temporary stomach reduction with the intragastric balloon you will lose weight from day one.

“The classic intragastric balloon is the ideal solution for patients who have tried different conservative methods of weight loss but have failed to make the progress they desire.”
HOW IT WORKS
The intragastric balloon works quite simply: it is placed in the stomach through the esophagus via an endoscope. In a suspended state, it takes up about 35% of the stomach volume, therefore reducing the feeling of hunger and prolonging satiety.

You can lose up to 25 kilos within 6 months. You will also benefit from individually tailored support from our weight loss team throughout your therapy.
The intragastric balloon is particularly suitable for patients over 18 years of age who are overweight (BMI of 27 or more), or have initial stage obesity and who are motivated to undertake medically assisted weight loss therapy. Depending on your weight and BMI, different intragastric balloon products and treatment durations are available.

It usually takes 3 – 5 days for your stomach to get accustomed to the new balloon. During this time, it’s possible that you will feel a slight discomfort or an upset stomach. As your body quickly adapts, the intragastric balloon will merely give you a longer-lasting feeling of fullness throughout the day and therefore helps to adjust your eating patterns.
