Gastric Balloon Surgery Scotland
If you have been struggling with weight control and diets just are not working, then a gastric balloon may be the solution for you. Getting a gastric balloon is a non-surgical procedure that can bring life-changing results to patients who do not want a surgical procedure.
Who are Aspire Weight Loss?
Aspire Weight Loss is based in Bath Street in Glasgow’s city centre and is led by a nationally recognised team of surgeons who specialise in bariatric procedures.
Both surgical and non-surgical procedures and are performed by either Mr. Hasan Kasem or Mr. Chris Shearer — both of whom are recognised expert surgeons in Scotland and the UK in the field of bariatric surgery. Our surgeons are supported by dieticians and specialist bariatric nurses, also based in our Glasgow clinic.
Who is a gastric balloon suitable for?
If you are over the age of 18 and your Body Mass Index (BMI) is in excess of 35, and you have dieted without long term success, then you’re likely to be eligible.
How much weight will I lose?
On average the majority of our patients who have a gastric balloon procedure may lose approximately 50% of their excess weight.
What is a gastric balloon and how does it work?
Insertion of a gastric balloon is a non-surgical procedure which takes approximately 15-20 mins. The implant itself is a soft silicon balloon which is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach then inflated with sterile saline. The balloon acts as portion control taking up approximately 60% space in your stomach, meaning you eat less without feeling hungry.
There is also no overnight stay required, no wounds and no anaesthetic to recover from meaning you can be back home in just a few hours and back to work in one to two days.
What type of balloons do you use?
We only use the leading gastric balloons – Orbera. This is the number one product that has been trusted for over 20 years with proven results for safety and weight loss.
