Gastric Balloon?

What Is Gastric Balloon?

Gastric balloon is made of silicone or polyurethane material, placed in the stomach as deflated and then inflated with sterile liquid. It is used for the obesity treatments. Balloon application is not a surgical intervention, but some gastric balloons are placed and removed by endoscopy under anesthesia, depending on the type of balloon.

Gastric balloons stay in the stomach for 4-12 months, depending on their types. With the feeling of satiety during this period, it makes easier for the person to follow his/her diet by limiting food intake. Nutritional style and eating habits change, and after the balloon takes out of the stomach, the person maintains these habits and maintains his ideal weight

What to eat after the operation?

Patient can have small amounts of clear liquids starting about six hours after the procedure. The liquid diet generally continues until the start of the second week, when you can start eating soft foods. You’ll probably be able to start eating regular food around three weeks after the procedure.
