Gastric Balloon

A gastric balloon (sometimes called an intragastric balloon) is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for weight loss. They’ve been proven to help people lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off.

Gastric balloons work by taking up space inside your stomach. Because the balloon is filled with salt water (saline), it physically leaves less space inside your stomach for food. This results in feeling more full, and not eating as much as you used to.

During your balloon procedure, your doctor will place the gastric balloon by sliding a small, thin tube down your throat and into your stomach. You’ll be comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes.
