The gastric balloon programme is perfect for men or women who want to lose weight safely and gain the knowledge and expertise to ensure the results are sustainable in the long term.
The weight loss programme at Prime Health includes the gastric balloon insertion, medical and nutritional advice, support, and follow-up care from a very experienced multi-disciplinary team that specialises in weight loss surgery and treatments.
The gastric balloon weight loss programme is a revolutionary yet straightforward, non-invasive weight-loss method. It is a 6 month programme that involves swallowing a gastric ‘pill’ which is inflated once in the stomach and remains there for up to four months. No endoscopy, no surgery or anaesthesia, no sedation – just results.
With the balloon in place, you will feel full after just a small portion of food and will stay satisfied for longer, and, supported with medical and nutritional advice you will be helped to not just lose weight but also make long-term healthy changes to your eating habits.
At the end of this four-month period, the gastric balloon deflates and is passed naturally through the body – no need for any extraction procedure.
A weight loss programme focused on success
Headed up by the UK’s leading weight loss specialists, our service aims to help you lose weight and make long term changes to your eating habits and lifestyle. The gastric balloon weight loss programme includes:
