What Is
Intragastric Balloon?

The Intragastric Balloon is a weight loss procedure that involves the placement of a silicone balloon into the stomach. The balloon is filled with saline solution and takes up space in the stomach so that the patient feels full quicker, resulting in reduced food intake and weight loss. The balloon typically remains in place for up to six months before it is removed. It is typically used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise.
