|The intra gastric balloon is a starter for your diet|
The balloon is an efficient help if you can not manage to follow a diet for more than 2 months or if you quickly gain weight after stopping the diet (only, 5 to 10 % of the patients only are keeping their weight loss, with the common weight loss programs).
It is a starter which will give you a feeling of satiety. You will be able to follow the diet prescribed by your nutritionist and loose within 6 months the weight which would normally require an effort of 2 years.
This starter is efficient if it is associated with a multidisciplinary approach. The team of experts will help you to lose weight and above all, avoiding to regain weight after the removal of the balloon.
