An Intragastric Balloon placement procedure is a weight-loss surgery in which a saline-filled silicone balloon is placed inside the stomach. Through this procedure, the patient will reduce the amount of food intake as they feel full much faster. If various methods of diet and even exercise does not seem to help in reducing excess weight, then this procedure is the right option. It is essential to understand that even after this procedure, a healthy lifestyle is necessary to achieve the best results.
The Intragastric Balloon Procedure is perfect for those who are overweight, and a consultation and screening by an experienced surgeon will determine if the process is right for an individual. This method of treatment is an outpatient procedure and performed in the endoscopy unit.
