The Spatz3 Intragastric Balloon
The implantation of Intragastric balloons has gained popularity worldwide as a safe, non-surgical method to kick-start weight loss and regain a healthy lifestyle. A saline-filled balloon resting within the stomach cavity decreases appetite by occupying a portion of the stomach volume. In addition, the stomach empties more slowly, keeping the patient full for a longer period of time.
The Spatz3 balloon is a unique, high-quality injection molded balloon that is unlike any other balloon. It is authorized to remain in the stomach for 1 year, compared to 6 months for other gastric balloons, giving the patient more time to make changes to their eating habits and lifestyle. On top of that, the Spatz3 balloon is adjustable in volume, allowing for repeated bouts of weight loss each time an adjustment is made. Standard gastric balloons lose their effectiveness once the body acclimatizes to the balloon.
When used in conjunction with a proper diet, exercise, and behavior modification programme, the Spatz3 adjustable balloon yields results far greater than any other balloon. Average weight losses of 17-24kg have been reported.
