What is the Gastric Balloon?

The Gastric Balloon is a medical device that helps you lose weight without the need for bariatric surgery. It is easily placed in your stomach to control your appetite and promote satiety, giving you the boost you need to change your life.

Unlike bariatric surgery, the gastric balloon can be installed and managed as an approximately 16-week “Weight Loss Program,” during which you will be fully supported by a team of health professionals to reeducate your lifestyle and establish new healthy habits that can be sustained over time.

Benefits of the Gastric Balloon
  • Safe and effective weight loss
  • No surgery or scars.
  • Quick recovery.
  • Improves overall health.
  • Controls hunger and cravings.
  • Personalized support throughout the entire process.
Advantages of the Gastric Balloon

An average of 10% to 15% weight loss can be achieved during the 16 weeks of treatment.

Up to 95% of the excess weight can be lost a year after removing the balloon just by maintaining your new eating habits.

Non-invasive: Unlike surgeries, the gastric balloon is placed in the stomach without the need for surgical incisions. This means a lower risk of surgical complications and a faster recovery.

Reversible process: The gastric balloon can be removed once the weight loss goal is achieved or if unexpected complications arise.

Fewer risks: Since major surgery is not performed, the risks associated with infections, bleeding, and scars are minimal with the gastric balloon.

Faster recovery: After the balloon placement, patients typically return to their daily activities much faster than after obesity surgery.

Less pain: Gastric balloon placement generally in volves less discomfort and pain compared to surgery.

Greater control: The gastric balloon allows for more precise control of the weight loss process. It can be adjusted according to the patient’s needs, which is not possible with surgery.

Continuous support: Throughout the gastric balloon process, patients receive constant support and guidance from a medical team, which is essential for long-term success.
