What is a gastric balloon?

Some obese people have tried so many diets and different lifestyles, but they couldn’t achieve what they want, and they dream of having a healthy, fit and beautiful body shape. Bariatric surgery is considered for people who are not able to control obesity by changing their lifestyle. It is a simple and nonsurgical procedure for reducing stomach volume. The gastric balloon has lots of benefits like minimal sedation and less invasive process. It is reported that the patient’s lipid levels and blood sugar levels are improved after this procedure. Patients lose approximately 20-30% of the excessive weight in about 6 months. This procedure is contraindicated for patients who had stomach surgery before, alcohol or drug addicts, patients with active gastrointestinal ulcers or cirrhosis and pregnant patients.

• The patients whose body mass index (BMI) is between 30 and 40 with comorbidities like diabetes or high blood pressure, sleep apnea, etc. • The patients who have already tried diet and exercise but cannot lose weight. • Patients older than 18-years old. • The patients who are willing to commit to healthy lifestyle changes and regular medical follow-up, as well as participate in behavioral therapy. • The patients who have not had any previous stomach or esophagus surgery. Stomach balloon is not the right choice for all overweight people, your doctor will examine you to see if the procedure is right for you.

The bariatric surgeon may recommend a pre-operative diet of two weeks before the surgery which has protein but carbohydrates and fat limitations. This diet makes the body ready for the surgery. Patients should tell the surgeon their complete medical history and medicines and supplements intake. Doctor asks for laboratory tests to check body health completely. It is important to know that patients should try to stop smoking at least 30 days before surgery for better outcomes. They should discuss the diet which must be followed after the procedure and make sure that they can obey the new diet rules. Eating solid food 12 hours and drinking liquids 6 hours before the stomach balloon procedure is prevented.
