Gastric Ballon in Turkey

A silicone balloon filled with liquid or air is called a gastric balloon. It is inserted into the stomach via gastroscopy. Its volume ensures that a feeling of satiety occurs more quickly when food is ingested. However, a gastric balloon is only effective with simultaneous changes in dietary and lifestyle habits and is removed after six months at the latest.

Overview of Gastric Ballon

Gastric balloon is made of silicone or polyurethane material, placed in the stomach as deflated and then inflated with sterile liquid. It is used for the obesity treatments. Balloon application is not a surgical intervention, but some gastric balloons are placed and removed by endoscopy under anesthesia, depending on the type of balloon. The mechanism of the gastric balloon is to create a constant feeling of fullness by occupying space in the stomach, thus enabling the patient to lose weight with less food consumption at each meal. Studies on this subject started in the 1980s. Swallowable gastric balloons, which do not require endoscopy and anesthesia, are also used.

When we consider obesity as a common disease of the modern age, gastric balloon applications are a frequently preferred curing method in the treatment of overweight and obesity, especially by individuals who are inconvenient to receive anesthesia or who do not want a surgical procedure. Gastric balloons stay in the stomach for 4-12 months, depending on their types. With the feeling of satiety during this period, it makes easier for the person to follow his/her diet by limiting food intake. Nutritional style and eating habits change, and after the balloon takes out of the stomach, the person maintains these habits and maintains his ideal weight

  • What is a Gastric Balloon?

    A Gastric Balloon is a non-surgical, temporary weight loss device that is placed in the stomach to create a feeling of fullness, reduce hunger, and help in significantly reducing food intake. It's an inflatable medical device made from silicone, inserted endoscopically, and filled with saline solution.

  • How much weight can I expect to lose with a Gastric Balloon?

    Weight loss varies from person to person but, on average, patients can expect to lose between 10% and 15% of their body weight over the 6-month period that the balloon is in place. Achieving these results also depends on the patient's commitment to a healthier lifestyle, including diet and exercise.

  • How long does the Gastric Balloon stay in the stomach?

    The Gastric Balloon is designed to be a temporary weight loss aid and typically remains in the stomach for about 6 months. After this period, the balloon is deflated and then removed endoscopically.

  • Are there any risks or side effects associated with the Gastric Balloon?

    While the Gastric Balloon procedure is generally safe, some patients may experience side effects such as nausea, abdominal pain, and discomfort during the first few days after insertion. There is also a rare risk of balloon deflation or gastric perforation. It is important to closely follow your doctor's instructions to minimize these risks.
