What is Gastric Balloon Surgery?
Gastric Balloon Surgery is a non-surgical treatment for obesity. Gastric Balloon surgery can greatly improve obesity-related health conditions. Additionally, our staff will work with you to ensure you achieve lasting weight loss after the surgery.
During the Gastric Balloon surgery, you are sedated and doctors guide a thin, soft balloon down your throat and into your stomach. Then, the balloon is filled with saline until it is about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes, then you go home and, six months later, the balloon is emptied and removed.
How Does it Work?
The balloon fills about less than half the space in your stomach. This slows the passage of food and liquids and makes you feel full, thus training you and your body to eat less.
Eating less = weight loss!
Weight Loss Maintenance
After the procedure, you will work with a dietician on a diet and exercise plan. A food diary will be important to track your progress. Once the balloon is removed, you will have another six months of guidance and behavioral therapy to help you maintain your new, healthy lifestyle.
