    Gastric Balloon

    What is Gastric Balloon?

    Gastric balloon stands out as an effective method used in the treatment of obesity. The balloon covers part of the stomach, restricting the access of food to the stomach and can usually be applied without surgery for 6 to 12 months.

    While this treatment offers a solution to the health problems associated with obesity, it also benefits the aesthetic appearance. After the balloon settles in the stomach, it creates a feeling of satiety, slowing down the rate of passage of nutrients through the stomach and reducing the appetite level.

    A gastric balloon is an effective aid in reducing the size of food and the frequency of eating by increasing portion control. In this way, less food is consumed, but you stay full for longer. Snacking habits are eliminated and weight loss is achieved.

    How is Gastric Balloon Made?

    Swallowable gastric balloon is an application that does not require surgical or interventional procedures.

    It only happens by swallowing the capsule with a glass of water. While a classical gastric balloon is placed with an endoscopic procedure, the ‘pill balloon’ performs its function by opening spontaneously after swallowing.

    This method supports weight loss by regulating eating habits with a gastric balloon, which is in capsule form that is easily swallowed with water.
