Intragastric Balloon: Deflating pounds, inflating confidence
What is Intragastric Balloon Placement?
Intragastric balloon placement is a non-surgical weight loss procedure where a deflated silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach through an endoscopic procedure. Once in place, the balloon is filled with a sterile saline solution, expanding to occupy a significant portion of the stomach’s volume. This intervention promotes a feeling of fullness, restricting food intake and aiding in weight loss.
How Is Intragastric Balloon Procedure Performed?
The Intragastric Balloon System is implanted in the stomach via a 30-minute minimally invasive endoscopic out patient procedure while the patient is under mild sedation. It is an out-patient procedure and does not need hospital admission. It is not a surgery and does not leave a permanent anatomical change to your body. The balloon partially fills the stomach to provide a feeling of satiety.
What happens after the Procedure?
As a result of the intragastric balloon procedure, patients are typically monitored in a recovery area to ensure their well-being. There is a possibility that some individuals may experience temporary discomfort, nausea, or vomiting that can be managed using prescribed medications. As part of the post-operative recovery, a dietary and lifestyle plan is developed to enhance weight loss and overall well-being.
