While standard balloons may need to be removed due to intolerance, the Spatz3 is volume-adjusted extending the treatment process to yield the most successful weight loss results. When balloons lose their effect after 3-4 months, only an adjustable balloon can have the balloon enlarged to renew the balloon effect.

The Spatz3 is the only flexible treatment tailored to the patients’ clinical needs.

“I have lost 41 kg (92 lbs) over 12 months with the Spatz balloon. Here is my story:

Weight loss has always been a challenge for me. I have tried it all. You know what I’m talking about – diet, exercise and pills. It either doesn’t work or it doesn’t last. Even if I followed the diet carefully – it was so difficult, and eventually I failed.

I knew that I needed help in controlling my appetite – but diet pills don’t work so well. When I heard about the success of balloons, I was very interested to see if it would work for me.

They were testing a new adjustable balloon at the university hospital near my home. My doctor suggested that I try it.

The first few days weren’t as bad as I expected. There was nausea and vomiting, but I managed to get through it. After that, it was much better. My appetite was reduced and I lost weight steadily. After about 4 1/2 months my appetite started to come back. My doctor recommended adding more fluid to the balloon. I went back to the hospital for a quick procedure. Since then I lost another 15 kg.

My life has changed. I am so happy with the results so far. I feel so proud when my friends tell me that I look great. My clothing became so loose that I had to go out and buy all new stuff. Most important of all, I feel great.”

3 year follow up: “I am doing great. I lost another 7 kg since my balloon was removed. That 1 year of balloon treatment really helped me change my eating habits.”

Success Story 2

Spatz3 patient implanted in Trinidad, June 2015 – has lost 46 lbs in 6 months.

Success Story 3

I had the balloon implant at the beginning of August. Since then I have lost about 18% of my total body weight and my blood sugar levels have dropped considerably.

The procedure was as easy as I was informed – I fell asleep and 30 minutes later woke up and went shopping with my husband. After the procedure I found myself quite weak for about 4-5 days, after which my strength and appetite slowly returned.

Today (March) I am in great shape, working out as usual, and can barely feel that the balloon is still there.

I am working with Spatz team and ensuring that changes in my eating behavior will remain with me once the balloon is removed. I am really happy that I decided to go ahead with this procedure.

Success Story 4

Michal lost 30 kg (66lbs) within 11 months.

After I tried everything, from pills, diet plans, weight watchers and all sorts of methods, I understood I needed something more. After I read about it, I decided to go for it!

The process was amazing.

To my surprise, the balloon implantation was very short, within 10 to 15 minutes it was done. It’s true that the first 4 days I felt weak, I’m not the kind of person that returned to work the day after.

Besides the fact that the treatment process was a good challenge to myself, it was nice seeing myself lose weight on a weekly basis. It was relatively easy, amazing and I simply received “me” back to myself. The New Michal.
