Health Benefits

  • Improved Metabolic Health: Weight loss associated with the gastric balloon can lead to improvements in conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.
  • Enhanced Mobility: Many patients report improved mobility and reduced joint pain due to the weight loss.

Weight Loss:

  • Short-term: On average, patients can expect to lose about 10-15% of their total body weight within the first six months.
  • Long-term: The maintenance of weight loss can vary. Studies indicate that patients may regain some weight after the balloon is removed, but maintaining lifestyle changes can help in sustaining weight loss.

BMI Reduction:

  • Patients typically experience a reduction in Body Mass Index (BMI). The average BMI reduction ranges between 5 to 10 points.



Gastric Balloon: Procedure and Recovery


The gastric balloon, also known as Intragastric balloon is placed endoscopically into the stomach and then filled with saline. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes and is done under sedation.


Most patients can go home the same day. A few days of adjustment are needed, during which patients are advised to follow a liquid diet before gradually transitioning to solid foods.

Adhering to a balanced, low-calorie diet is crucial for maximizing the benefits of the gastric balloon. Regular physical activity is recommended to enhance weight loss and overall health.
