Gastric Balloon
Case Cards

Real Patients, Real Results

We ask our patients to share their stories and be proud of their achievements. Weight loss is difficult, and we believe making steps towards our goals should be celebrated whenever possible. This act of sharing stories is often a source of inspiration for others, and as such this page is dedicated to just that. Below you will find case cards relating to patients who have been through our Gastric Balloon programme themselves. These patients were comfortable enough to allow us to share their journey, which is amazing.

Each journey is unique, and each journey is special. And although the results really do speak for themselves, we believe that sometimes it’s good to have a little insight into personal experience. Weight loss, as well as being generally transformative, has the ability to save lives. Get professional medical advice from the Allure team today.

Post Programme FAQ's

Will my weight stay off?

As long as you practice what you have learnt throughout the programme there is no reason for you to put weight back on. In fact studies show that 95% of weight loss can be sustained at 12 months if lifestyle changes are being maintained.

How long does it take to return to normal activities after placement?

Most people can return to normal activity within a few days. However, many people do experience nausea, abdominal cramping and, occasionally, vomiting after balloon placement for the first three days.

In most cases, your consultant surgeon will prescribe commonly used medication to help manage these symptoms as part of the package.
