WHAT IS THE GASTRIC BALLOON?

A Gastric balloon Dominican Republic is a non-surgical temporary procedure that has been shown to reduce 10 percent of total body weight. It involves placing a light Gastric balloon Dominican Republic in the stomach for up to six months to help produce a feeling of fullness and reduce hunger.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE

While the patient is under mild sedation, a thin, deflated balloon is placed in the stomach through the mouth. Once in place, the balloon is filled with a saline solution. The solution also contains a blue tint so that it can be easily detected in the urine in case the balloon is broken. The balloon can be filled with different amounts of solution to match the structure of your body.

The balloon stays in your stomach for up to 12 months before being removed by your doctor. In particular it can be adjusted in the middle of the process.

During the ball process:

    • You must exercise and train with weights or crossfit at least 1 hour, 4 times a week.
    • You must change your diet and choose foods and drinks that do not contain sugar, flour or simple carbohydrates, eliminate junk food.
    • The solution to obesity will always be to change the lifestyle, it is never the Gastric balloon Dominican Republic or any other bariatric surgery.

GASTRIC BALLOON DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: WEIGHT CONTROL PROGRAM

Healthy and sustainable habits are required for long-term weight loss after balloon removal. After the balloon extraction, it is recommended:

  • Meet with an expert who specializes in weight control
  • Limit your daily calorie intake from 1,200 to 1,400 calories
  • Exercise at least five days a week

Our weight management programs are based on clinics and at home based on healthy lifestyle habits and behavioral health modification strategies that can help you re-train your appetite and maintain weight

Hola, mi nombre es Leocadia Javier, mi peso de antes era 208 libras, tenia aproximadamente 2 años luchando con el sobrepeso. Intentaba todas las dietas que me proponían y trataba de hacer ejercicio, pero no tenía la suficiente fuerza de voluntad para lograr lo que yo quería.

“Dr. Pablo Garcia and his team are the best! I felt comfortable every step of the way. The secretary Helen and Noelia are extremely helpful and they both had the gastric sleeve done before, so they can help with any questions or concerns. I’m currently 2 weeks post op and I feel amazing! I’m already 20 pounds down. (A plus: they are modern and speak English). They accommodated me to leave the country on my desire day after a post op and assuring everything was well. Helen even wrote me an excused letter IN ENGLISH for my university. It was amazing and they are very attentive through whatsapp and make themselves available even after you leave the country.”.

“I don’t ever write reviews but I have to because my experience was amazing and out of this world. From the second that I went into his office, he spoke to me in the most honest manner. He told me honestly that VSG was a great surgery for someone like me but ultimately it would be my choice. When I went into his office the first time, I just wanted information but after I saw how attentive he was, I felt comfortable to talk about my weight issues. He’s so respectful, honest, and makes me feel like a long time friend!! I had VSG on 1/10/2018. I trusted Dr. Pablo Garcia and my life has changed ever since. Thank you Dr. Garcia!!”

“I had gastric sleeve done on November 15, 2016 and it was the best decision I have ever made. Dr. Pablo Garcia was the one who performed the procedure. He was very supportive and informative about everything. I was weighing 394 pounds and in total I have lost 153 pounds.”
