Intragastric balloons in conjunction with a supervised diet and behavior modification program can help you achieve the health and aesthetic benefits associated with weight loss. More than 17 years of experience with intragastric balloons have reported modest successful weight loss and patient satisfaction.
In Andrea Bariatric Surgery, we use the adjustable balloon system where the unique inflation port allows balloon volume additions or subtractions alterations after the implantation. This allows your Doctor to start at a lower volume initially (less uncomfortable), and then increase the volume gradually.
This can be done multiple times. Patients who are intolerant can have their balloon volumes diminished. This provides comfort and caters to more effective weight loss.
Intragstric balloon insertion is done endoscopically under sedation. No hospital stay is required and patients will be discharged on the same day of the procedure.
