What is the Gastric Balloon?

Gastric Balloon Weight Loss Procedure - Mexico Bariatric Center

The Gastric Balloon is a weight loss procedure in which a deflated balloon-like device is inserted into the stomach through the throat/esophagus. The procedure is non-surgical and only takes 15 minutes to complete. Patients are awake during the procedure and only require a mild sedative instead of anesthesia.

Once the balloon is placed into the upper stomach, the doctor inflates the balloon with saline solution (or CO2 gas). This reduces stomach capacity which promotes weight loss.

How Gastric Balloon Works

The gastric balloon is used by those who firmly believe they can maintain a healthy diet and exercise but need some help in getting the process started. It is also useful for those that do not qualify for another form of weight loss surgery.
