Non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical temporary weight loss surgery with medical support.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF AN INTRAGASTRIC BALLOON?
The Intragastric Balloon, also known as Gastric Balloon Surgery is a non-surgical, temporary weight loss treatment for obesity, in which a high quality and durable silicone bag is inserted into the stomach through the throat with an endoscope or gastroscope.
When in the stomach, the bag is inflated with air or saline to resemble a balloon (hence the name). An Intragastric Balloon is designed to aid weight loss over a six month period, enabling patients suffering from obesity to feel full, curb their appetites, eat smaller portions and gain control, in order to follow a managed diet and lifestyle programme for improved health and well-being.
Larry had a Gastric Balloon with Tonic. Watch his story below.

THE TONIC CONSULTATION
FOR BOTH WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY & COSMETIC SURGERY IN DUBAI
At our Dubai weight loss and cosmetic surgery clinic we offer a bespoke service to all of our patients – this is because all our patients are unique in their own way and they are likely to have different needs and requirements.
When you book a specialist consultation with one of our bariatric or cosmetic surgeons we will arrange a pre-consultation check in with you. This is where our surgeon will get in touch with you prior to your in-house consultation and go through the details of the operation you are considering to ensure that:
- You are a suitable candidate for the surgery.
- The procedure you are considering is the correct one for you.
- Your medical history is within expectations.
- To discover if any concerns are preventing you from undergoing the operation.
- You have a chance to feel at ease with the surgeon before you attend your in-house consultation – we are fully aware of how daunting this can be.
