Gastric Balloon Before & After

Gastric Balloon Benefits

Non-Surgical Weight Loss Option

Gastric balloon surgery offers a non-surgical approach to weight loss, making it an appealing option for individuals who are hesitant about undergoing invasive procedures. Unlike other bariatric surgeries such as gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric balloon can be inserted through the mouth, eliminating the need for incisions or permanent alterations to the digestive system. This less invasive nature reduces the risk of complications and leads to a faster recovery time, allowing patients to resume their daily activities sooner.

Exploring the Advantages of Gastric Balloon Surgery

Effective Weight Reduction

One of the primary benefits of gastric balloon surgery is its effectiveness in promoting weight loss. The balloon is filled with saline solution or air, which occupies space in the stomach, thereby reducing a person’s food intake capacity. This leads to decreased calorie consumption and helps individuals develop healthier eating habits. Studies have shown that gastric balloons can assist patients in losing a significant amount of weight within a relatively short period, making it a valuable tool for those struggling with obesity.

Short-Term Commitment

Another advantage of gastric balloon surgery is its temporary nature. Unlike permanent bariatric procedures, which permanently alter the digestive system, gastric balloons are typically left in place for around 6-12 months. This short-term commitment allows patients to test the waters of weight loss and adapt to healthier lifestyles without the lifelong implications of other surgical interventions. After the balloon is removed, individuals can continue their weight loss journey through diet and exercise or, if necessary, opt for further treatment.

Improved Health and Quality of Life

Gastric balloon surgery not only aids in weight loss but also contributes to improved overall health and a better quality of life. As patients shed excess pounds, they often experience positive changes in conditions associated with obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea. Additionally, the boost in self-esteem and body image that comes with successful weight loss can lead to enhanced psychological well-being and a more active, fulfilling lifestyle. By addressing both physical and emotional aspects of health, gastric balloon surgery can have a profound impact on a patient’s well-being.

Weight Loss’s Impact on Obesity-Related Conditions

Gastric balloon process, step-by-step


The process begins with a consultation with one of our healthcare providers who specializes in weight management. During this consultation, your medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals are discussed. If you are a suitable candidate, the procedure is explained in detail.

Pre-Procedure Evaluation

Before the procedure, you may undergo various medical tests, including blood tests and imaging, to assess your overall health and determine your eligibility.


On the day of the procedure, you are usually given a mild sedative or local anesthesia to make you comfortable. A deflated silicone balloon is inserted into your stomach through your mouth and esophagus using an endoscope, which is a long, flexible tube with a camera attached.


Once the balloon is correctly positioned in the stomach, it is inflated with sterile saline solution. This process can take about 20 to 30 minutes. The inflated balloon takes up space in the stomach, reducing its capacity and giving you a sense of fullness, which helps with portion control.


After the procedure, you may stay in the hospital for a few hours for observation. Some patients may experience nausea, vomiting, or discomfort during the first few days, but these symptoms typically subside as your body adjusts to the balloon.

Diet and Lifestyle Changes

A significant part of the success of the gastric balloon procedure is adopting a new diet and lifestyle. You will work with a dietitian to develop a plan that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Balloon Removal

After 6 or 12 months, the balloon is removed. This is usually done through another endoscopic procedure. The deflation and removal of the balloon take about 20 to 30 minutes.

Post-Removal Support

After the balloon is removed, you will continue to work with healthcare professionals to maintain the weight loss achieved during the balloon period.
