Gastric Balloon

Category(s): Bariatric

Also called the intragastric balloon, the gastric balloon is a reversible, incision-free weight loss procedure. A deflated soft silicone gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth and filled with liquid which reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold. This allows the person to feel fuller faster. The procedure is performed under sedation or general anesthesia and generally takes 20 to 30 minutes to perform. The balloon can be left in place for up to six months and then needs to be removed or replaced.
