Gastric Balloon Procedure At a Glance:
Research has very clearly demonstrated that the intragastric balloon system is an effective and safe addition to lifestyle changes that promote weight loss in obese patients.
Furthermore, weight loss has been observed to be maintained even after the device is removed.
As a quick summary and takeaway point for individuals considering Gastric Balloon intervention; the intragastric balloon behaves as a sort of intermediate avenue between lifestyle change and intensive bariatric surgery options.
With the gastric Balloon, patients have come to find that it is more effective than standard lifestyle interventions That being said, the Gastric Balloon is also more cost effective than total Bariatric Surgery.
What to expect from Intragastric Balloon Placement
When you undergo gastric balloon placement, it is typically performed as an an endoscopic outpatient procedure.
After the balloon is inserted into a patient’s stomach, the balloon is filled with a saline solution.
As with most weight loss procedures, patients may experience reduction of severe comorbid conditions.
These conditions include but are not entirely limited to: diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.

As the intragastric sleeve technique advances in addition to also being a common outpatient endoscopic procedure, different types of balloons and mechanisms are available to patients who qualify.
