The gastric balloon is a silicone balloon that is introduced into the stomach by means of a gastroscopy and prevents weight gain. It supports overweight people in losing weight.

The gastric balloon is a balloon filled with liquid, which is inserted endoscopically into the stomach. It can be used to treat obesity. The use of the gastric balloon leaves no scars and is used under anesthesia, during a gastroscopy. The gastric balloon, made of silicone, is filled with a saline solution. When eating, a much faster feeling of satiety now occurs, as the capacity of the stomach is reduced. The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Advantages of the gastric balloon are that it is not a surgical procedure and therefore there are hardly any risks. It is a solution that supports weight reduction.

  • 6 months gastric balloon

How does the process of gastric balloon surgery work?

The gastric balloon is one of the limiting techniques of gastric surgery and, as with all surgical procedures, is used according to the medical examination and history of the patients. The gastric balloon is a soft silicone that is filled with liquid or air. The gastric balloon is inserted as part of a gastroscopy and removed again. Since it is usually a small procedure that lasts between 20 and 30 minutes, it can be performed on the same day after the medical examination and treatment. To protect against all risks, the gastric balloon is removed after about 3-6 months by your specialist in our clinics. This is especially necessary because it can cause the possible effects of the gastric mucosa, which can cause nausea, abdominal pain and/or vomiting.

Gastric balloon: Benefits

The balloon filled with liquid or air takes up so much space in the stomach that its wearer fills up faster. This restrictive treatment method can be seen as a type of supportive measure that causes changes in dietary habits. The most important advantage is that the gastric balloon can be used on the same day and you can immediately adapt to the new conditions.

However, complications rarely occur in the gastric balloon insert. The gastric balloon does not cause anatomical changes to your body. In addition, the gastric balloon is easily removed after between 6-12 months.
