After completing the first six months of your journey towards health and well-being it’s time to remove the Gastric Balloon and strike out on your own, with help from your NYBG support team.

Removal of the Gastric Balloon takes around 20-30 minutes, similar to when you had it inserted, and you will remain under the care of your professional health care team for the next six months.

During the removal procedure, you will be sedated and the doctor will remove the sterile salt water from the Gastric Balloon before removing the deflated balloon from your stomach.

It is very important that you continue seeing your professional support team on a regular basis during this final six months of the program as this will set the foundations for the future.

The amount of weight you lose and how you maintain that weight loss will depend on how well you adopt lifestyle changes related to eating and exercise.
