Gastric Balloon

Save up to 75% of your costs on Gastric Balloon Surgery in Prague
Gastric Balloon is one of the most popular types of Weight Loss Surgery. This procedure is recommended for patients with BMI between 30 and 35. Gastric Balloon is inserted into the stomach, which evokes an early feeling of fullness. Dramatic weight loss and improvement of the patient´s life follows.

Although Gastric Baloon Surgery is very effective, not everyone can afford it. Because Weight Loss Surgery costs are constantly rising in other popular destination countries, it makes sense to come to Czech Republic to have this procedure done. It is not only affordable here, but you will also enjoy Prague, which is one of the most renowned cities for its hundreds of spires, picturesque views and magnificent cathedrals.

What is the difference between Gastric Balloon and SPATZ Balloon?
The only difference between these procedures is that Gastric Balloon stays in the abdomen for 6 months, while SPATZ Balloon for 12 months and is adjustable.

How is Gastric Balloon in Prague done?
In the morning of the procedure date you will have your preoperative tests and an English-speaking internist will examine you. After that, you will have a gastroscopy. If there are no ulcers found, the Gastric Balloon can be inserted. The surgery itself takes only 20-30 minutes and is carried out under local anesthesia. Then you will be taken to the inpatient ward, where you will stay for one night. The next day your surgeon will come for check – up. If everything is fine, you can leave back home, but it is recommended to stay one more night in a hotel. You will also get your personal diet plan. After 6 or 12 months the balloon is removed free of charge.

How long should I stay in Prague for Gastric Balloon procedure?
Only 2 – 3 nights in Prague are required for this procedure.

What is the mechanism of losing weight with Gastric Balloon?
The balloon reduces the capacity of your stomach and lowers the food intake. The balloon stays in your stomach for 6 or 12 months. During this period of time you will be getting used to the new diet. When the balloon is removed, you will have new eating habits and continue to lose weight.

How much weight can I lose with Gastric Balloon or SPATZ Balloon?
The amount of weight you lose after Gastric Balloon or SPATZ Balloon procedure depends on how closely you follow your diet and adopt lifestyle changes.  You can lose on average 16 kg (35 lbs) over 6 month period with Gastric Balloon and 25 kg (55 lbs) over 1 year period with SPATZ balloon. If you get used to new eating habits and lifestyle, you will keep losing weight after the extraction of the balloon.

When you lose weight you may be interested in having a cosmetic surgery to improve your look further. Sometimes patients look for Tummy Tucks or Liposuctions. These procedures are also carried out at our clinics in Prague.
