Gastric Balloon

Gastric Balloon

Gastric Balloon


The gastric balloon is made of medical-grade polyethylene that is flexible and stretchable. An insert tube is inserted into the stomach, and a filling apparatus is used to fill it with a saline solution. The balloon is too huge to fit into the intestine when inflated, so it stays in the stomach for months. Patients become full considerably more quickly and hungry much less frequently. Patients lost an average of 17 to 35 thousand dollars in controlled research.


The stomach is pre-filled by the balloon. As a result, the patient requires less food before he or she feels satisfied.


The compact, uninflated balloon is placed into the stomach through the mouth. This does not necessitate surgical intervention. The gastric balloon is usually placed under twilight anesthesia. You will be given a medicine that will induce sleep (propofol). You simply fall asleep throughout the operation and awaken after approximately 20 minutes. A short inflation tube (catheter) linked to the balloon is used to fill it with a sterile saline solution once it is in the stomach. The saline solution is mixed with a control liquid, which makes the urine green. In the rare case that a stomach balloon bursts, patients will notice the colour of their urine right away. The doctor removes the catheter after it has been filled. The balloon now floats freely in the stomach thanks to a self-sealing valve. The gastric balloon takes up space in the stomach and activates the key nerves above the stomach in the months that follow. Patients become full considerably more quickly and hungry much less frequently. This impact is utilized in conjunction with nutritionists or follow-up caretakers to gradually adjust the diet over months so that patients can lose weight successfully over time.


It normally takes no more than 30 minutes to complete the treatment. The patient is discharged the same day after a brief monitoring period.


Although it is entirely up to you, a balloon can deliver between 10 and 25 kilograms. Your ability to execute and sustain a new diet and exercise program will determine how much weight you lose. Following gastric balloon removal, it is critical to stick to a strict diet and exercise routine.

A balloon can transport an average of 15-20 percent of total body weight, according to studies.
