Based on our experience, a gastric balloon procedure typically leads to a weight loss of about 1.5-2.5 stone (approx. 9.5-16 kg) during the first 6 months that the balloon is in place. However, it’s important to note that individual results may vary, and some individuals have achieved even greater weight loss.
We anticipate that around 70-80% of your weight loss will occur within the first 3 months of having the balloon. After this initial phase, your weight loss may slow down or stabilise, and the balloon will primarily serve as a supportive tool to help you maintain your new weight.
The amount of weight you lose will depend on various factors, including your starting weight and how well you adapt to the new eating habits that the balloon encourages. It is crucial to remember that there are no magical solutions for weight loss, and maintaining long-term results requires discipline and focus. This is why our support plan places significant emphasis on nutrition and physical activity, as they play vital roles in achieving sustainable success. By following the provided nutritional and lifestyle guidance, you can enhance your chances of long-term weight management.
