Gastric Balloon Surgery

For effective and noticeable weight loss results, the gastric balloon surgery available at OClinic in Sydney provides sustainable weight loss, and can assist you to develop lasting healthy habits. Whether you have struggled with restrictive diets for some time, or you are not seeing results from exercise, this surgery type can be ideal for losing weight and maintaining it over time, and for your health and wellbeing overall.

How does the gastric balloon surgery work?

During a short surgery, a balloon will be inserted into the stomach, by way of the mouth. Here, it will be inflated, creating a feeling of fullness in the stomach. The procedure has many benefits, including:

  • Reducing the amount of food intake
  • Reducing hunger
  • Making the patient feel fuller, sooner
  • Prompting the patient to make healthy food choices
  • Creating pathways towards healthy eating habits

When left in for six months, the balloon has the greatest chance of achieving the desired aims. Only a temporary measure, it provides the grounds for long-term, measurable behavior changes and healthy eating habits across the lifespan.

As well as the initial surgery, the team at OClinic provide on-going support and guidance after the six-month period in order to sustainably manage your habits and keep the patient at the target weight. This includes nourishing management of nutrition, diet and exercise, to ensure the patient remains as healthy as possible. Working with you and your lifestyle, we ensure that the results are something you can achieve in the long term.
