How Much is a Gastric Balloon?

Losing weight is a long term process. It is a matter of changing your life and habits, rather than just eating less. Deciding to lose weight is a commitment of your time and effort. For increasing numbers of people, it is also a commitment of their money. The diet industry is a growing industry, and many would-be dieters spend lots of money on all sorts of diet plans. Compared to many other weight loss plans and diets, a Gastric Balloon is a cost effective solution to maximise your weight loss journey.

What is a Gastric Balloon?

A gastric balloon procedure suppresses your appetite by temporarily taking up space in your stomach and reducing the production of ghrelin, the hunger hormone.

On average, our patients will lose 10-15% of their body weight, with the help of our dietitian’s lifestyle and diet advice. The gastric balloon is a weight loss tool that helps you make changes to your lifestyle allowing you to lose weight quickly and effectively.

Who Needs a Gastric Balloon?

Gastric Balloons are not for everyone. They are for people who are overweight, and have struggled to lose weight before. A minimum BMI of 30 is required to be eligible for a Gastric Balloon. As they are long lasting, they are for people who might need to take longer to lose weight. A gastric balloon is for people who need the help to start changing their lifestyle that a balloon can bring.

What is the Cost of a Gastric Balloon?

There are different types of Gastric Balloons, depending on the length of time that the balloon has to last.

The BiB Balloon lasts for 6 months. This costs £4295. Overall, this works out at just over £700 a month.

Finally, the Orbera 365 lasts a whole year. It costs £4495 overall. This is around £375 a month as an average.
