Lose weight with Intragastric balloon and liposuction
LIPOSUCTION is not a treatment for weight loss, and the gastric balloon has the only medical indication for patients how are super obese with high risk, and with the balloon they only loss 10 to 30 pounds at much to prepare them to have a definitive procedure like , duodenal switch, gastric sleeve, or gastric bypass.but your better option is do exercise and have follow up with the nutritionist.
