1.0 Product description
Gastric balloon placement is a weight-loss procedure that involves placing a saline-filled silicone balloon in your stomach. This helps you lose weight by limiting how much you can eat and making you feel fuller faster.
The Gastric balloon procedure may be an option if you have concerns about your weight, and diet and exercise haven't worked for you.
Like other weight-loss procedures, an iGastric balloon requires commitment to a healthier lifestyle. You need to make permanent healthy changes to your diet and get regular exercise to help ensure the long-term success of the procedure.
The placement of an intragastric balloon helps you lose weight. Weight loss can lower your risk of potentially serious weight-related health problems, such as:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Heart disease or stroke
High blood pressure
Obstructive sleep apnea
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)
Type 2 diabetes
Intragastric balloon placement and other weight-loss procedures or surgeries are typically done only after you've tried to lose weight by improving your diet and exercise habits.
