The future of weight loss
Are you one of the millions of Americans who struggles to control their eating, maintain reasonable portions and curb unmanageable snacking? Have you found that diet and exercise alone have failed to produce the desired weight loss, leaving you frustrated and confused, and even hopeless? If this is the case, the revolutionary two-phase Fresno gastric balloon program at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute may be the ideal solution for your short-term weight reduction goals, setting you up perfectly for long-term lifestyle changes.
Experience a revolutionary lifestyle shift
During phase one – months 1 through 6 – while the balloon is present in the abdomen, patients receive ongoing nutritional advice and support from a qualified compassionate team. This success-oriented structure is continued into phase two – months 6 through 12 – after the balloon is removed.
A groundbreaking, appetite-suppressing device that is safe, effective and comfortable
Inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope, the soft flexible silicone gastric balloon is filled with sterile saline and acts as a deterrent to destructive eating. It creates a sensation of fullness and contentment in the belly resulting in less hunger. Over time, the gastric balloon has been shown to facilitate up to 3 times more weight loss than diet and exercise alone.
For many overweight clients, the pressures and risks of undergoing bariatric surgery are unappealing, whereas the gastric balloon with its safe, non-invasive, non-surgical insertion process presents an attractive and viable alternative. Still others undergo gastric balloon treatment in our Fresno office in order to prepare for bariatric surgery by losing a set number of pounds that will help to minimize potential complications and risks once they take that more aggressive step.
It's all in the numbers
The proven safety and efficacy of the FDA-approved gastric balloon is taking the Fresno body sculpting market by storm, with sensational results. In clinical trials, patients experienced weight reduction from 25 to 45% of their total excess, which in some cases meant a loss of as much as 70 pounds. In addition, the gastric balloon helped case study clients to make positive lifestyle changes that insured their long-term health and well-being well beyond the primary stages of the gastric loan program.
