When it comes to the end of your placement with the Orbera 365 12 month gastric balloon (or if you need your Allurion Balloon removing early), you will need to return to your Allure Weightloss clinic. If you are looking for a gastric balloon placement in the UK, and this is part of your comprehensive research into the procedure, why not speak to a member of the team directly and they will be able to guide you through all your questions in a 0-pressure conversation.
You will need to fast two days prior to your removal and our team will provide you with instructions in advance. This is similar to what you were expected to do at the start of your journey with us. It is essential that you do fast as any food found left in the stomach will lead to the consultant having to abandon the procedure.
What Happens Once the Balloon is Removed?
Once removed you will be observed for two hours and won’t be able to drive for 24 hours. This is because of the light sedation that is administered to patients in order to keep them comfortable during the procedure. Because we are removing the balloon, no ‘recovery’ diet will be necessary and you should find you are able to resume normal dietary intake when you feel ready. Remember, during your time with Allure you will have had numerous 1-1 dietitian sessions scheduled in order to help you make those necessary long-term changes to the way you approach food. This will be the cornerstone of your ongoing success post-placement.
Each member of the Allure Weightloss team has been selected for their dedication to a patient-focussed approach to care. This is, of course, especially the case when it comes to our experienced and talented consultant doctors and surgeons, all ready to help you realise your weight loss goals via medical methods. You can find our full team online today.
