Gastric Balloon, is a new weight loss nonsurgical procedure performed by placing a lightweight, saline-filled silicone balloon in the stomach. This balloon helps the patient losing weight by making them feel fuller with less food in the stomach.
First, your doctor will use an endoscopic camera to examine your abdomen. If they do not observe any abnormalities, your surgeon will insert a thin tube (catheter) loaded with the balloon through your mouth and down your throat into the stomach.
The balloon is usually inserted deflated while it is in the smallest size. The surgeon will use an oral spray to numb the throat area, which helps to facilitate the procedure.
Furthermore, he will use some medication to relax the muscles. Once the balloon is inside the stomach, it is filled with sterile saline through the catheter. Then the surgeon will remove the catheter by pulling it on the outer end. Then the balloon will be floating freely in your stomach.
The stomach balloon is an outpatient procedure, and it doesn’t require you to stay in the hospital at night. It usually takes 20-30 minutes, after which you will be monitored by the medical crew for a couple of hours and then can go back home.
The balloon can stay in your stomach for 6 to 12 months (Depending on the balloon type). Then it will be removed.
