FDA-Approved Non-Surgical Balloon Weight Loss Method Helps People Shed Up to 50 Pounds

Americans spend almost 60 billion dollars annually in pursuit of weight loss with gastric bypass surgery being the most common type of weight-loss surgery; an option that isn’t for everyone. 

Like any major procedure, gastric bypass has significant health risks and side effects. In addition, to be a candidate for the procedure, one must have a BMI (body mass index) of 40 or higher. 

The fact is, a huge percentage of the population are only between 15 to 50 pounds overweight without any other options besides diet and exercise. 

Dr. Stanley Poulos, a San Francisco board certified plastic surgeon is an early adoptor of the nonsurgical balloon weight loss method approved by the FDA in 2016. Following the two-part program, patients lost an average 3.1 times the weight compared with diet and exercise alone.
