Weight Loss with Gastric Balloon
Lose weight in Dothan with the intragastric balloon
Introducing the intragastric balloon weight loss system, the latest innovation in medical weight loss, creating a bridge between traditional weight loss methods and weight loss surgery. Gastric Balloon is a non-invasive weight loss procedure that features an intragastric balloon that aids with hunger, helping you achieve greater weight loss success.
With intragastric balloon, you can lose three times more weight than through diet and exercise alone.
What is Intragastric Balloon?
The intragastric balloon system supports healthy weight loss without making any permanent changes to the digestive system. Unlike some weight loss surgeries, which may require permanent changes to the stomach or colon, intragastric balloon offers appetite reduction and weight loss support without any surgical alterations to the stomach or digestive tract.
The intragastric balloon is inserted into the stomach in an endoscopic procedure. This can be done as an outpatient procedure, and typically only takes about 20-30 minutes. Once in place, the balloon is inflated with a saline solution to about the size of a grapefruit. This takes up room in the stomach, limiting how much you can comfortably eat at one time.
Benefits of intragastric balloon
- Not permanent
- No incisions
- No wounds
- No scarring
- No painful recovery period
Unlike many forms of weight loss surgery, intragastric balloon is not permanent. The device is easily removed after about six months and the stomach returns to normal. This weight loss system is highly recommended for those who need weight loss support but are not eligible for weight loss surgery.
Recovery from the gastric ballon procedure is fast and simple. No wounds means you are able to start focusing on exercise and healthy lifestyle habits much faster after your procedure.
As a short-term intervention method for weight loss, intragastric balloon can enhance your ability to control your diet and lose weight.
