Intragastric Balloon

Stomach balloon is a non-surgical medical procedure whereby a stomach balloon full of a water solution is inserted through a scope and will be left inside the stomach for (6) months after which it should be removed.

How does the stomach balloon reduce weight?

The balloon should be filled with 500-700 cubic centimetres of water solution which will thus occupy an area equivalent to one-third of the original stomach size, thereby yielding a feeling of content and fullness, and will reduce the quantity of food taken.
