What is the Gastric Balloon?

A gastric balloon is a temporary weight loss procedure. Gastric Balloons are spherical in shape, approximately 500ml in volume and are filled with water or saline.

Streamline offers two different balloon programs, the Orbera 365 balloon & the Elipse balloon. In our experience, both balloons work best when they are combined with an individualised weight loss programme.

How does the Gastric Balloon work?

The balloon sits in the stomach, making you feel full, controlling appetite, so that portion sizes are reduced and patients are less driven to snack.

Will a Gastric Balloon work for me?

The Gastric Balloon has been designed to support patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27 and above, you can calculate this via our online tool.

To support your success as with any weight loss surgery, patients need to be prepared to work hard with the gastric balloon and follow the advice given by your clinical team.

However, not everyone is suitable for the Gastric Balloon procedure and you would need an initial assessment with a Bariatric Consultant Specialist to assess your suitability and ensure the Gastric Balloon is right for you
