What exactly is an Intragastric Ballon?

No matter which gastric balloon is inserted, they work in the same way. Firstly, they occupy space within the stomach, so that there is less space for food. The stomach varies in size substantially from person to person according to your height, sex and genes. The average stomach is approximately 1.5L in volume, and so the average balloon (filled to 650 mL) reduces the volume of the stomach by less than 50%.

In fact, the main effect of the balloon is that its slows the passage of food and liquid through the stomach. This makes you feel fuller quicker and longer and substantially reduces the amount you need to eat to feel comfortably full.

How do I know if I am Candidate?

  • The intragastric balloon is designed to assist with weight loss in people who ideally have 10 to 30 kilograms of weight to lose. The minimum BMI is for individuals with a BMI of 27 and greater.
  • It is also used for people who are not suitable for other forms of weight loss surgery.
  • The use of the Gastric Balloon may assist in reducing weight prior to surgery, therefore reducing the risks associated with surgical procedures on overweight patients.

What are the benefits of this surgery?

  • Feel full sooner while eating and therefore eat less
  • Lose about 30% of their excess weight in 6 months
  • Have health improvement for diabetes, joint/bone disease, and heart-related issues

What tests or formats should I perform before the surgery?

The first step is to fill out our medical questionnaire, our coordinator will contact you as soon as possible to talk about your case and if it is necessary to perform a test to make the evaluation correctly. If you are not a candidate for this surgery, our doctors will make the most appropriate recommendations to take care of your health and well-being.

You must also be able to handle the physical stress of surgery. Some people have health complications that make major surgery very risky. In some cases, these complications stem from obesity itself, and some initial weight loss can improve the health of the patient enough for surgery.

Psychological readiness is another important factor. Gastric sleeve entails a series of dramatic lifestyle changes, which can be stressful or cause unexpected reactions. Having the right attitude toward food, exercise, and health is important.

If a test is necessary, the doctor will let you know in the medical evaluation, as well as the diet that should follow.
