Intragastric Balloon 6 and 12 months
The intragastric balloon is usually the first option to treat obesity without surgery. The procedure is very simple, without any discomfort for the patient. A silicone balloon is inserted through the esophagus into the stomach with an endoscopic technique. Once lodged in the stomach, it is filled with saline to take up space. This process only takes 20 minutes and the patient can return home immediately.
It reduces the sensation of hunger and following a proper diet it is possible to lose weight naturally. After a few months, the balloon is removed and the patient can continue to lose weight if good dietary habits have been consolidated.
