For those that are looking to lose weight, combat obesity, or challenge existing comorbidities, a gastric balloon placement in Leeds can be a valuable investment. Depending on the balloon you elect to place, patients typically experience an average weight loss of between 10 and 18%.
What is a Gastric Balloon?
A gastric balloon is a revolutionary weight loss tool designed to be temporary, lasting in the stomach for 4 months with the Allurion Balloon and up to 12 months with the Orbera 365. Each balloon is placed with the same goal in mind: to give patients a break from hunger and help to facilitate weight loss. With Allure, patients also receive a full dietitian support package as standard.
Patients typically experience a weight loss of between 10 and 15% with the Allurion Balloon and 10 to 18% with the Orbera 365. The Orbera 365 is as of yet the only gastric balloon with FDA approval, able to be placed in the stomach for up to 12 months.
Can I Exercise with a Gastric Balloon?
In short, yes! Absolutely. We would only recommend you don’t do any kickboxing, as that could be very uncomfortable. Also, no skydiving, and no deep-sea diving either. Going for a run, a jog, or to the gym is not only ok but encouraged.
