5 most important reasons why you should come to Poland for the gastric balloon procedure.
1. Gastric Balloon is a non-surgical weight loss procedure
The biggest advantage of a gastric balloon over other weight loss procedures is that it is performed with the use of the non-surgical technique. The doctor will numb your throat with the spray, so you won’t feel anything during the procedure. Then plastic mouth guard will be put between your teeth and gums, that is done in order for the doctor to pass the endoscope through your mouth down to your stomach and insert the balloon. After the balloon is inserted it will be filled with saline solution or gas to occupy space in your stomach. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and is done under a mild sedative, which means that the same day you can go back home.

3. More people qualify for gastric balloon surgery than for other weight loss procedures
If you are not a candidate for the surgical weight loss procedures you may be a candidate for the gastric balloon procedure. To be the candidate you should have BMI (body mass index) between 27 and 35 while for other weight loss surgeries you must have BMI (body mass index) of 40 or more. Gastric balloon is often used before having a weight-loss operation, to reduce surgical risk. But remember only doctors can decide if you are a candidate for the gastric balloon procedure in Poland or not.
4. Recovery after gastric balloon surgery in Poland is fast
Gastric balloon does not require any anesthesia and for the most patients, there is no need to stay in the clinic after the surgery. Even though among all weight loss procedures, a gastric balloon has the shortest recovery period, it is still advised to take some time off work to give the body time to get used to new weight loss technique.
5. Gastric balloon is a reversible procedure
Most weight loss procedures make permanent changes in your digestive system, gastric balloon is not one of them as it must be removed in 6 months (can also be removed earlier if needed). The disadvantage is that it makes the chances of regaining weight higher, the advantage is that there is no need for you to take the vitamins for the rest of your life as your digestive system will be able to absorb all the vitamins from the food. Beauty Poland offers you not only weight loss procedures but also plastic surgery like liposuction Poland or lipectomy Poland.
