HOW DOES SPATZ BALLON WORK?
THE SPATZ BALLOON itself AND THE INTERVENTION
Spatz3 adjustable balloon is made of high quality medical silicone. It is filled with colored saline And the amount is determined by a binocular examination. It is going to take up about a third of the volume of the stomach. Once the balloon is in place, the stomach empties more slowly because the balloon holds the food in the stomach for longer. At the same time, the balloon provides internal pressure in your stomach, which sends signals to the brain to eat less.
HOW THE SPATZ BALLOON WORKS
The Spatz3 Balloon is equipped with a unique valve that can increase or decrease the size of the balloon. The unique retractable valve provides the ability to adjust the size of the balloon, thereby increasing your chances of getting better results. If you experience an increased feeling of satiety with Spatz, the size of the balloon can be reduced, while it can similarly be increased if the opposite is the case. The doctor can adjust the size of the balloon while it is still on the stomach, and the procedure is therefore easy and often painless.
Spatz3 Adjustable balloon is inserted on an outpatient basis. The procedure takes approx. 15 minutes and performed during sedation, where no incision or hospitalization is required. You will be home within two hours.
