Life After Spatz Gastric Balloon Up-Adjustment
Spatz3 is the world’s only Adjustable Gastric Balloon System
Spatz3 is the only adjustable gastric balloon in the world. While other balloons lose their effect after a few months causing you to stop losing weight or even regain it, one of the advantages of Spatz is that you can adjust the volume of the balloon.
This adjustment of the gastric balloon rejuvenates its effect and prolongs weight loss. For everything to go well, we recommend that after your up-adjustment you take into account the following tips.

Balloon Effect Rejuvenation
You may be wondering: will I have a first and second phase effect after an upward adjustment? The answer is not necessarily. One third of patients will have symptoms (such as: nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, etc.) but two thirds will have no symptoms. Rather, two-thirds of patients will not have the same sensations they had at initial balloon implantation. There is nothing to worry about.
The stomach may be less affected than at the beginning. The post-adaptation period can skip phase 1 and go directly to phase 2. Basically, the effect of the balloon is restarted and you will continue to learn to eat less.
Use it as a tool to change your behavior
As you can feel, in the first phase the balloon does all the work for you. While in the second phase, you control the amounts of food and frequency yourself.
After the adjustment, the balloon becomes larger and takes up more space in the stomach. Without this adjustment, some patients start to gain weight. Thanks to the Spatz gastric balloon adjustment, many patients will be able to prevent weight regain.
For others, making the balloon larger will help them lose more weight, just as it helped them in the first months of treatment, through signals and alerts when the stomach begins to fill. Remember that a larger balloon does not usually stop you from eating, but helps you feel full when you need it most. This can help you get extra motivation in your weight loss and help prevent weight regain.
Follow our tips to change your behavior and encourage the second phase of gastric balloon adjustment.
Change your lifestyle
Don’t wait for signals. Now is the time to start anticipating signals – in other words, you look back on the previous days and know that you didn’t eat properly even before you got the signals. When you can do this, you begin to achieve what those with healthy lifestyles have achieved – they take responsibility for their food intake and are aware when they did not eat correctly, and make the correction.
That is your ultimate goal, which will make a lasting change towards your goal of a healthier life.
It is best to rest up after you have had an up adjustment. Your body will need to adjust to the larger balloon so get some well-deserved rest.
Lean on family and friends for support
Use the support of your friends and family, especially during the first few day’s post balloon procedure. You may need to arrange help for child-care for 4-5 days, as you will be feeling weak and may have a difficult time handling kids.
