Even though it’s a non-surgical option, deciding to move forward with a Spatz3 gastric balloon is still a big step. There are several avenues that you’ll want to pursue while researching the gastric balloon and whether it makes sense for you.
Naturally, you’ll need to meet with the doctor and staff at the clinic where you’ll undergo the procedure and receive follow-up care. It’s also helpful to see evidence that the gastric balloon procedure works. We know that most people can really relate to before and after pictures.
Take a look at this article that was published last month in Australia’s Daily Telegraph. It presents three recent success stories along with some compelling before and after photos. 42 year-old Emmanuel Perdis was able to lose 40 kg in a year with the help of the Spatz gastric balloon. Way beyond the cosmetic benefits, his Type 2 diabetes disappeared part way into his treatment. Perdis explains that the gastric balloon was a tool that helped him modify his portions, for example, going from 6 cups of pasta at a meal to one and a half.
Jabez Allies, also 42, quickly gained 20 kg after a difficult set of life circumstances piled up. With the help of the gastric balloon, she has been able to lose 18 kg in the first five months of treatment. Allies also benefited medically from lowering her blood pressure.
Both Perdis and Allies were cared for by Dr. George Marinos from Gastric Balloon Australia. Marinos, co-founder of the clinic, also lost weight with the aid of a gastric balloon.
