As the newest gastric balloon available in the USA, the Silhouette Clinic is excited to offer the Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon!

What is Spatz3?

The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon is the world’s first adjustable weight loss balloon. Unlike non-adjustable balloons, a one-size-fits-all option, the Spatz3 can have its volume adjusted after implantation providing patients with the most personalized weight loss balloon experience. As a result, we are proud to offer the highest overall success rates and highest weight loss results*!

How does Spatz3 help patients lose weight?

Once inserted, the Spatz3 balloon occupies approximately 30% of your stomach. This will cause you to eat less and feel full faster and longer. Additionally, the Spatz3 helps you develop healthy eating habits to maintain your weight loss after the balloon is removed. By interpreting the signals you receive from your balloon, you will have the opportunity to adjust your eating habits for the better so that you can continue your weight loss into the future.

Why is Adjustability important?

The adjustability feature is what separates the Spatz3 from non-adjustable gastric balloons. Imagine there was only one size of shoes, let’s say size 10. If you’re a size 12, how will you squeeze your foot into the size 10 shoe?

The same goes for your gastric balloon. While we aren’t “squeezing” the balloon into your stomach, every individual is different and therefore needs a system that can be adjusted to fit their needs. The answer? Spatz3’s adjustability.

The adjustability feature helps improve 2 main areas of gastric balloon treatment:

  1. Approximately 10% of patients will be intolerant to a gastric balloon due to stomach sensitivity, which with your average non-adjustable balloon leads to a balloon removal and the completion of your treatment. However, with the Spatz3, the size of your balloon can be reduced to alleviate symptoms, allowing you to complete your treatment and reach your weight loss goals in the process.
  2. Around the 3rd – 4th month of gastric balloon treatments, your body will have adjusted to the presence of the balloon, and you will see your weight loss plateau (and in some cases regain weight). With a non-adjustable balloon, there isn’t anything that can be done to avoid this phenomenon. But, with the Spatz3, we can increase the size of your balloon to reignite your weight loss! The up-adjustment feature is the reason Spatz3 has the highest weight loss of all balloons tested in FDA trials*.

How much weight can I lose with Spatz3 Balloon?

The amount of weight you can lose with your Spatz3 is directly correlated to your commitment and willingness to comply with the professionally crafted weight loss program from The Silhouette Clinic. By working with your support team to introduce an exercise and dieting routine to your daily life, you’ll be on your way toward meeting your weight loss goals!

Throughout the FDA Clinical Trials, Spatz patients lost a total of 53.6% of their excess body weight and 15% of their total body weight*. On average, patients lost 31.7 pounds*, however many patients have succeeded in losing 50+ pounds; it all depends on your adherence to your professionally crafted program.

Who qualifies for Spatz3 Balloon?

Spatz3 is the ideal weight loss solution for those with a BMI between 30 and 40 who can participate in a medically supervised weight loss program. If you have previously received stomach or bariatric surgery, such as a hiatal hernia repair, lap band, or gastric bypass, you are not eligible for the balloon. Additionally, if you are pregnant, you are not qualified for the Spatz3.
