HOW THE GASTRIC BALLOON WORKS

Intragastric Balloon

A durable gastric balloon made out of soft silicone. After being temporarily inserted into your stomach, it works over a period of six months to encourage your body to adapt to healthier portion sizes. It achieves this due to its unique design. The shape and volume of the stomach balloon takes up enough space in your stomach to help you adapt to healthier portion sizes. The technology of this innovative gastric balloon helps patients lose up to 3x the weight of diet and exercise alone. There are several benefits to this approach that set it apart from other weight loss assistance programs.

GASTRIC BALLOON IS NON-SURGICAL

The gastric balloon is inserted orally through your esophagus and placed directly into your stomach during a quick, non-surgical procedure.

GASTRIC BALLOON REQUIRES NO INCISIONS

Since the weight loss balloon is inserted through your throat and into your stomach there is no need for any incisions, stitches, or scars.

GASTRIC BALLOON IS NON-INVASIVE

The 30-minute procedure is completed while you are mildly sedated. Most patients go home to start their weight loss journey on the same day.

GASTRIC BALLOON IS NON-PERMANENT

After the first six months of the weight loss program, the stomach balloon is carefully removed, and the aftercare program continues. The following six months we work closely with you, developing a personalized diet and exercise program and monitoring your progress.
