Gastric Balloon

What is the Gastric Balloon Procedure?

The gastric balloon is a non-surgical weight loss procedure wherein a saline-filled silicone balloon is placed inside the stomach. This balloon takes up space in the stomach, creating a feeling of fullness and helping patients to eat less, thus promoting significant weight loss. It’s an effective solution for those seeking a less invasive alternative to surgery for weight management.
