The gastric balloon also known as a stomach balloon, is a weight loss procedure, in which a soft salt-filled silicone balloon is placed in your stomach, which helps you lose weight by limiting the amount of food you can eat, and making you feel full faster.

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 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.
