Frequently Asked Questions about the BIB Program

How much weight will I lose?

You can experience significant weight loss averaging between 15-20 kilos; however your results will depend on how well you follow the program and adjust your eating habits.

Will I be able to feel the balloon in my stomach?

There will be discomfort during the first few days. After that, the primary sensation of the BIB is a feeling of satiety.

Are there side-effects or complications with the BIB?

The first three days will be very difficult. Cramping, nausea and vomiting are normal and should be expected. It is very important that you follow your doctor's instructions and drink plenty of fluids. Medication may be available to help ease the discomfort.

How long will it take to recover after the procedure?

You should plan at least three days of inactivity to recover from the procedure. You will be able to resume normal activity sooner or later than this depending on how quickly your body adjusts to the BIB.

How will the weight-loss results compare with other diet programs?

You can expect to lose more weight with the BIB. Because the BIB gives you a feeling of satiety, you are better able to control your eating and make healthy changes in your habits.

Does the BIB require frequent visits to my doctor after the procedure?

The follow-up program is critical to success with the BIB and in learning new lifestyle skills. You will meet with your physician and support team at least monthly while the BIB is in place. During this time your progress,will be evaluated and you will learn valuable principles of health, nutrition, and exercise that will provide you a foundation for long-term success.

Does the BIB limit activity?

The first week you should not plan any heavy activity. Once your body has adjusted to the BIB, you can continue your normal activities. Starting a regular exercise program is highly recommended and will improve your success.

What happens if the BIB leaks?

If the BIB leaks, you will notice a change in your urine color (it will be greenish). Although very uncommon, this can be a serious situation. If you notice a change in urine color, you must call your doctor immediately. If the BIB deflates, it will likely pass through your body naturally, but in some cases it may need to be removed by your doctor.

Can I drink alcohol?

Alcohol in moderation is fine.

Can I eat anything I want? Are there any food restrictions?

You will not feel like eating as much as you used to. In addition, if you eat fatty foods or sweets, you may feel sick. Excessive over-eating while the BIB is in place can be dangerous and can result in a serious medical condition.

How is the BIB removed?

The BIB is removed through the mouth in the same manner it was inserted. The 20-minute procedure is performed under sedation.

Must I participate in the follow-up visits to be successful?

The BIB is not a magic pill, but a tool to change your lifestyle. Taking part in the program will give you the education and support to change your lifestyle habits and have a better chance for long-term success.
