Are you struggling with weight loss in Rhode Island? Many people fail to lose excess weight, even with diet and exercise. One of the most well-known weight loss treatments is bariatric surgery. While this treatment offers numerous health benefits, it can carry risks and complications that can negatively impact your health. Endoscopic non-surgical procedures such as the gastric balloon and gastric sleeve have been clinically proven as safe and effective weight loss treatment alternatives.

Gastric balloon specialist Dr. Steven Batash works with individuals in Rhode Island and around the world to achieve their weight loss goals. Many patients who have a virtual consultation with Dr. Batash travel to his New York Clinic to experience the results many others have achieved. With the gastric balloon, you can see weight loss results of 40 pounds or more.

Top non-surgical weight loss doctor Dr. Batash has delivered successful weight loss results to numerous patients from Rhode Island and elsewhere. The gastric balloon procedure is combined with lifestyle and nutritional counseling for optimal weight loss results.

What is the Gastric Balloon Procedure?

The gastric balloon procedure is an innovative weight loss treatment to help people lose weight and achieve a healthier lifestyle. A temporary balloon is placed inside the patient’s stomach for up to six months using an endoscopic tube. Because the balloon is filled with saline, you are able to feel full throughout the day from less calories. After six months, the balloon is removed, as the patient develops the skills and habits for a healthier lifestyle. The most common side effect from the procedure can be nausea that dissipates after a few days.

You are able to return home a few hours after the procedure and return to work within a day or two. Bariatric surgery can take months to prepare for and can have a longer recovery. Once you have received the gastric balloon, lifestyle and nutritional counseling are made available to help you make the lifestyle changes you need for success. The gastric balloon procedure can be performed again in the future, as often as the doctor recommends for your health and wellness.
