Gastric Balloon by Endoscopy

Gastric Balloon by Endoscopy is a non-surgical tool for the treatment of overweight and obesity. It is a temporary therapy for weight loss in patients whose Body Mass Index is greater than 27 (overweight) or as a pre-treatment for bariatric surgery.

It is a silicone sphere filled with sterile saline solution that is inserted into the stomach through the mouth using an endoscope. It provides a feeling of greater satiety with less food intake, thus facilitating the change of habits and lifestyle.

Gastric Balloon
The gastric balloon is a non-invasive option for weight loss in overweight and obese individuals. The balloon is removed after 6-12 months, by which time the patient should have learned healthier eating habits and achieved significant weight loss.

The Gastric Balloon is not a long-term solution for obesity and must be combined with lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and regular exercise to achieve and maintain effective and sustainable weight loss.

However, the gastric balloon is only used temporarily and must be removed after a specified period, usually between 6 and 12 months. As with any type of gastric balloon, there are associated risks and side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. It is important to evaluate your case to decide if it is the appropriate treatment for weight loss for you.

Benefits of Gastric Balloon by Endoscopy

  • Significant weight loss: The Gastric Balloon helps limit the amount of food that can be consumed, resulting in significant weight loss compared to diet and exercise alone.
  • Non-invasive: The procedure to place the Gastric Balloon is non-invasive, so it does not require surgery and there is no prolonged recovery period.
  • Improved health: The weight loss resulting from the use of the Gastric Balloon can improve health and prevent obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension.
  • Feeling of fullness: The Gastric Balloon creates a feeling of fullness in the stomach, which helps reduce appetite and control portions.
  • Adjustable and flexible: The endoscopic gastric balloon we use is adjustable and flexible, so we can make it smaller or larger according to your needs during the weight loss process. It can be removed at any time if necessary, which makes it more flexible than other obesity treatment options.
  • Increased confidence: The weight loss resulting from the use of the Gastric Balloon can increase confidence and self-esteem, which can improve overall quality of life.

It's important to keep in mind that the Gastric Balloon is not a magic solution for obesity and should be used as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that includes diet and exercise changes. For best results, it's important to follow the guidelines and recommendations of your doctor and healthcare provider.
