Weight Loss with Stomach Balloon Procedure
About one-third of American adults are dealing with obesity. Being obese doesn’t just affect your self-confidence, but it can also increase your risk of other health problems including stroke, diabetes or heart disease. If you are looking for a way to lose weight and improve your health and wellbeing without the need for invasive surgery, it might be time to consider how our stomach balloon procedure could get you on track to a healthier body.
For many people, diet and exercise aren’t enough to reach their ideal weight. This procedure was designed for people who are looking to achieve significant weight loss, while also changing their lifestyle so that they can keep that weight off. Of course, there are other options like bariatric surgery, but not everyone wants to deal with surgery and its potential risks. So, how does this balloon procedure work?
During this procedure, we will place a saline-filled balloon inside the stomach for six months. The purpose of this balloon is to take up room in your stomach so that there is less room for food and you feel fuller faster and for a longer period of time.
The balloon will be inserted into the mouth endoscopically without the need for any surgical incisions and scars. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and only takes 20 minutes. Another advantage to choosing this treatment is that unlike other weight loss surgeries this it’s not permanent, so it won’t actually alter your digestive system.
If you are an adult with a body mass index from 30-40 and you haven’t gotten the results you want through exercise and healthy eating alone, it might be time to consider our stomach balloon procedure.
