It is a procedure without surgery (endoscopically) indicated for patients who are either obese/overweight or have failed dieting attempts. The balloon partially fills the stomach and limits food intake, it gives you a feeling of satiety, so it should be easier to change eating habits & as a consequence, lose weight.
The unfilled gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth and oesophagus with the aid of an endoscopic camera. The procedure will be conducted under IV sedation. Using a fluid supply tube, the gastric balloon is then filled according to the size of the stomach (400-700cc) and the tube removed. The insertion of the gastric balloon takes between 10 to 15 minutes. You will be able to return home same day after an appropriate period of recovery (2-4 hours approximately).
Within 6 months, An endoscopic camera is once again introduced into the stomach through the oesophagus. The gastric balloon is then punctured, deflated, grasped with forceps and removed.
