Let’s introduce you to the simplest way to lose weight: a gastric balloon! If you’re seeking a nonsurgical and nonpharmaceutical method to help you reach an ideal weight, a gastric balloon might be the one you’re looking for!
A gastric or stomach balloon is a small, silicon-made device that your doctor can place easily in your stomach to occupy more space, which makes you feel fuller and decreases your appetite for food.
Doctors can use one of 6 different types of gastric balloons, including Orbera IGB, Heliosphere, Spatz3®, ReShape, Obalon®, and Elipse balloons. Some of these balloons are swallowable pills and don’t require anesthesia.
The demand for gastric balloons is noticeably increasing among people, especially those who seek simple and less risker obesity solutions. In short, you may receive the following benefits if you decide to try one of the gastric balloon technologies:
The system of a gastric balloon usually consists of an insertion tube, a filling system, and an extensible balloon. The procedure only lasts for 15-20 minutes and is commonly done in an outpatient facility with minimal anesthesia or sedation. The procedure’s steps are as follows:
Your doctor is going to insert the gastric balloon through your mouth. They usually use an endoscope with a light and camera to monitor the process.
Next, your doctor will use a small catheter to fill or inflate the balloon with sterile saline.
Finally, after nearly 6 months, your doctor will remove the balloon endoscopically and end the treatment.
Nonetheless, the gastric “pill” balloon has much simpler steps. In fact, if you choose this option, all you need to do is to swallow the pill and your doctor will inflate it with fluid or gas. This option doesn’t require anesthesia or endoscopy, and your body will spontaneously expel the balloon after 6 months.
Gastric balloon usually brings positive impacts and rarely can cause side effects. In any case, some people may indeed encounter certain problems, especially during the insertion of the balloon. The risks and complications include:
