What is the

Gastric Balloon?

The Intragastric Balloon Placement is a weight loss procedure that involves placing a silicone balloon filled with saline solution in your stomach. This helps you lose weight by limiting the amount of food you can eat and making you feel fuller faster.

The procedure may be an option if you are concerned about your weight, and diet and exercise alone haven’t worked for you.

Are you an ideal candidate for the Gastric Balloon?

It’s not for
everyone

This procedure is ideal for those who are overweight and have a grade I or II level of obesity. It is recommended for patients with a BMI greater than 27 and patients with a BMI between 30 and 34.9 with moderate health risks related to obesity. The age range is from 13 to 70 years old.

ideal for
seniors

The gastric balloon has become a classic among operations for weight reduction in elderly patients with obesity since it is a non-invasive method without the risks that traditional stomach surgery would imply.

See how the balloon is placed in the stomach.

How to Prepare for the Gastric Balloon

The patient must fast for at least 8 hours before the procedure,

is premedicated (prescription is given at the assessment appointment) and must be accompanied by a family member or friend.

After inserting the balloon, from the first moment and after a couple of days, he/she may feel discomfort, nausea, and even vomiting, although these symptoms disappear quickly.

He/she may lose between 10 to 20 kilos with this procedure, but it is crucial that during the treatment, the patient learns to follow a nutritious, balanced, and healthy diet that ensures the long-term success of his/her weight-loss goals.
