Gastric Balloon Treatment

A gastric balloon is a soft, smooth, durable balloon made of silicone rubber. It is designed to be placed in the stomach to reduce its capacity and help you feel full with less food. The deflated balloon is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach by a doctor using an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube).

Who Needs Gastric Balloon Treatment:

Gastric Balloon Treatment is generally recommended for individuals who have a BMI of 30 to 40 and have not achieved significant weight loss through diet and exercise alone. It can be considered as an alternative to more invasive weight loss surgeries for those who prefer a non-surgical approach or are not eligible for surgery.

When to See a SpecialistIf you have struggled to lose weight through traditional methods and are looking for a non-surgical option, it’s advisable to consult a bariatric specialist. They can assess your medical history, lifestyle, and weight loss goals to determine if gastric balloon treatment is a suitable option for you.


  • Consultation: A thorough evaluation is conducted to assess your eligibility for the procedure. This includes a review of your medical history, physical examination, and possibly diagnostic tests.
  • Balloon Placement: During a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure, a deflated silicone balloon is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach.
  • Inflation: Once the balloon is in place, it is filled with a sterile saline solution. This process takes about 20-30 minutes.
  • Monitoring: After inflation, the balloon remains in the stomach for a period of about six months. During this time, you will work closely with a dietitian to develop a personalized eating plan.

Road to Recovery

Recovery after gastric balloon treatment is typically quick, with many patients returning home on the same day as the procedure. You may experience mild discomfort and nausea initially, but this usually subsides within a few days.

Risk Management

While gastric balloon treatment is generally considered safe, there is a risk of complications such as nausea, vomiting, gastric discomfort, and balloon deflation. Regular follow-up appointments with your medical team are essential to monitor your progress and address any concerns.

Benefits of Gastric Balloon Treatment

Non-Surgical Approach: Gastric balloon treatment offers a non-surgical option for weight loss, making it suitable for individuals who want to avoid surgery.

  • Rapid Weight Loss: Patients often experience noticeable weight loss within the first few months of treatment.
  • Temporary Intervention: The balloon is removed after approximately six months, which means the procedure is reversible.
