The gastric balloon procedure is a non-surgical and short-term weight loss program that places a smooth, soft saline-filled balloon in your stomach. Because the balloon takes up room in your stomach, there is less room for food storage. The placement of the gastric balloon in the stomach results in more portioned controlled meals by the patient, because they consistently feel full.
The balloon comfortably conforms to the shape of the patient’s stomach and has been used in the management of obesity for over 20 years. The balloon technology has evolved over time, which has resulted in a modern, durable product that produces thousands of safe and effective weight-loss results across the world.
