A gastric balloon is a reversible procedure where an inflatable medical device is placed in the stomach. The balloon can be inserted via mouth and therefore does not require any incisions or surgery.
The gastric balloon occupies space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food it is able to hold, making the patient feel full even with small meals. This is a method commonly used for weight loss.
Our professional care team are on hand to discuss the procedure with you beforehand as well as to discuss any aftercare required.
