What is Gastric Balloon?

Gastric balloon is a bariatric procedure that aims to lose weight by placing a saline filled silicone balloon in the patient’s stomach. The balloon placed in the stomach; By limiting how much a person eats, it creates a feeling of fullness faster and thus ensures weight loss.

Am I the Right Candidate for Gastric Balloon Procedure?

Patients must have a BMI between 30 and 40 and have not had previous weight loss surgery to qualify for a gastric balloon procedure. Intragastric balloon is not suitable for morbidly obese people as it helps to lose 30% of excess weight. Patients who have a gastric balloon should follow a 12-month diet and exercise regimen to maintain their weight loss over the long term.

Types of Gastric Balloon

Stomach balloon, which is one of the popular weight loss methods today; It takes up space in the stomach, making people feel less hungry. There are 4 different types of gastric balloons, also known as slimming balloons.

Orbera Gastric Balloon

Orbera; It is an FDA-approved weight loss procedure that does not require surgery, but helps people lose an average of 3 times the weight of diet and exercise alone. Of the various intra-gastric balloons, Orbera is the best-selling gastric balloon variant with more than 300,000 placements worldwide.

Orbera, the only gastric balloon filled with saline, stays in the placed area for 6 months. At this point we remove it using a method similar to placing a balloon. In size, the volume of a filled Orbera balloon is approximately 550 cc, or the size of a grapefruit.

Obalon Gastric Balloon

Obalon gastric balloon; The orbera resembles a gastric balloon as it stays in the stomach for 6 months. In the Obalon gastric balloon system, instead of endoscopically placing the balloon in the stomach, the surgeon swallows the patient as a capsule and allows the balloon to reach the stomach. When the balloon descends into the stomach, the surgeon fills the balloon with a gas. In the following weeks, he gives the patient an appointment for additional balloon placement and renewal, and the process continues for 6 months in this way.

Elipse Gastric Balloon

Elipse balloons; Just like Obalon balloons, they are inserted into the stomach during a 20-minute consultation with your doctor. You swallow a tube containing the deflated balloon, and after it enters the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline. This can also be accomplished without anesthesia as you have control over the entire process. It can be checked whether the balloon is in the right place with X-ray.

Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon

The difference of the Spatz gastric balloon from other gastric balloons is that it can be adjusted to accommodate saline filling volumes from 400 cc to 800 cc. This allows the surgeon to increase or decrease the size of the filler along the way to ensure the filler is working at its full potential. The Spatz balloon system is currently under FDA review for use in the United States. Approved for up to 12 months placement outside the USA in select locations.
