Intragastric Balloon Surgery in Saudi Arabia
The overall procedure is very simple and straightforward. Intragastric balloon surgery in Saudi Arabia takes anywhere between 1 and 2 hours. It can occur on an outpatient basis, or in an endoscopic clinic if your general healthcare provider allows it.
We recommend consulting your general healthcare provider and medical professionals at Spatz Medical to understand whether you qualify for the procedure.
The process involves intravenous sedation, a 15-minute balloon-filling procedure, and a one-hour recovery period. Once your surgeon gets a positive report through the consultation and your general healthcare provider greenlights the procedure, the surgeon will perform sedation.
After that, the surgeon will insert an endoscope through your mouth down to your stomach. Through the endoscope, they will transfer the high-quality silicone-based gastric balloon to your stomach and place it there.
Then the surgeon will fill up the adjustable Spatz3 intragastric balloon with sterile saline solution, which is completely harmless to the body if absorbed. Following that, the surgeon will recommend a one-hour recovery period and then the final consultation before you are ready to go!

If you have any medical conditions or suspect underlying health problems, make sure you state those clearly. People who have undergone intestinal or stomach-related surgeries are sometimes exempt from the procedure. The following conditions limit your access to intragastric balloon for weight loss treatment:
- Cardiac disease
- Lung/kidney/liver/lung disease
- Hiatal hernia
- Chronic NSAID
- Stomach surgery
- Esophageal surgery
Spatz Medical helps all patients achieve peace of mind before and after the procedure. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you undergo the surgery effectively:
Before the implantation procedure takes place with your Spatz Medical professional, ensure a good night’s sleep. It can help you react more actively and recover better after the procedure.
It’s important to fast for six or more hours before the implantation procedure. If you’re going to have your implantation procedure in the afternoon, make sure you stop eating and drinking starting the night before. Since it can be difficult for most people, you can have clear liquids in the morning, approximately six hours before the procedure.
Make sure you arrange an escort to take you home. We advise leaning on friends and close friends to drive you home after the procedure. However, you should inform them that the procedure can take anywhere between 15 minutes and 2 hours. You should avoid driving right after the procedure.
The post-procedure recovery period following the mandatory one-hour supervision under your surgeon varies for different patients. While some people require only 1-2 days to recuperate fully, others might require 6-7 days. On average, it takes our patients 4-5 days before they’re ready to get back to their work routine.
Communicating with Doctor
You should stay in touch with the clinic and your doctor after the procedure to communicate any unusual symptoms or signs. If you require support or have any questions, you can always reach out to Spatz Medical professionals for clarity.
During the first few days after the implantation procedure, you will experience common symptoms:
- Difficulty eating
- Acid reflux
These are the earliest symptoms that are indicative of good progress following the implantation. Although any unusual symptoms should be reported to your doctor immediately, the chances of that happening are rare.
We know that it can be difficult to ensure these symptoms during the first phase of weight loss progress with the Spatz3 gastric balloon. However, it also kickstarts great progress because the balloon will work for you (it won’t let you eat)!
Before phase 2 starts, you will have transitioned and the intragastric balloon in your stomach won’t manifest any painful symptoms. You will start feeling full quicker and for a longer time, limiting your food intake. Simultaneously, it will be easier for you to move towards a healthier lifestyle and diet behavior!

There Are Two Main Challenges With Gastric Balloons
Loss of Balloon Effect
Gastric Balloons lose efficiency by the 4th month (on average) and patients start to regain weight.
Approximately 1 out of 10 patients face early extraction due to intolerance.
The Spatz3 Solution
Spatz3 patients can have the balloon volume increased, when needed, to help prevent weight regain and to achieve the industry’s highest weight loss results.
With the Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon, patients can decrease the volume of the balloon to alleviate balloon intolerance.
