Gastric Balloon for Weight Loss

  • Intra-gastric balloon placement is a weight-loss procedure that involves placing a saline-filled silicone balloon in your stomach which  helps patients to lose weight by limiting how much they eat and help them feel fuller faster.
  • The balloon is considered an option after the failure of diet and exercise.
  • Like other weight-loss procedures, an intra-gastric balloon requires commitment to a healthier lifestyle as patients will need to make permanent healthy changes to their diet and get regular exercise to help ensure the long-term success of the procedure.
  • Side effect: Pain and nausea affect about one-third of people soon after insertion of an intra-gastric balloon. However, these symptoms usually only last for a few days after balloon placement. These symptoms can usually be managed with oral medications at home.
