What is Gastric Balloon Weight Loss?

Gastric ballooning, also known as endoscopic intragastric ballooning, is a non-surgical weight-loss technique that involves inserting a specialized balloon into the stomach to occupy space and reduce the stomach's food holding capacity. This causes you to feel fuller faster and restricts your intake to smaller meals. The operation is just temporary, and the balloon is normally removed within 6 months.

Why you need Gastric Balloon Weight Loss?



Obesity is when a person has excess of body fat caused by genetic and environmental factors that are difficult to manage while dieting. Obesity is defined as an excess of total body fat caused by a caloric intake that exceeds energy consumption. Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a metric used to estimate the health hazards of obesity.

How does it work.

The gastric balloon is a procedure that requires no surgery or anesthesia. Our Bariatric Surgeon will ask you to swallow a pill with water and is then located in the stomach with the help of X-ray. It is inflated with sterile water until it enters your stomach. The soft balloon is designed to help you reduce your food intake by taking up space in your stomach which gives the sensation of being full faster, which aids in weight loss by lowering food consumption.

The balloon deflates after few months without the need for an endoscopic procedure, and it naturally leaves the body. As a result, this procedure is totally safe and non-invasive when it comes to weight loss, and it will help you lose those extra kilos without the hassle of a hospital stay, sedation, or even endoscopy.
