That’s why our dietician will continue to support you even after you remove the balloon, for additional six months, to ensure that you avoid the weight regain and stay the course with a healthy eating habits.
The dietary counseling starts even before the balloon insertion. Our dietician will help you understand the way forward in terms of food and drink changes that you will encounter. Patient awareness is of a paramount importance in reaching successful results. After the balloon insertion, you will have access to the dietician up to two times a month. You can schedule a phone consultation or send an email about your food and drinking questions, and you will meet a prompt and informing reply.
