Gastric Balloon in Turkey

Gastric Balloon Surgery in Turkey

Gastric balloon surgery, also known as intragastric balloon or weight loss balloon procedure, is a non-surgical, temporary weight-loss intervention. Unlike traditional bariatric surgeries such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, the gastric balloon procedure does not involve any cutting or stapling of the stomach.

Here's an overview of the gastric balloon surgery:

  1. Placement of the Balloon:

    • A deflated, soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth using an endoscope (a flexible tube with a light and camera at the end). Once inside the stomach, the balloon is filled with a sterile saline solution, expanding to occupy a portion of the stomach.

  2. Volume and Duration:

    • The balloon is designed to reduce the amount of space available in the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and decreased appetite. Typically, the balloon remains in the stomach for a period of six months to a year.

  3. Supervised Weight Loss:

    • During this time, individuals work with a healthcare team, including dietitians and physicians, to make lifestyle changes and develop healthier eating habits. The balloon is a tool to assist in weight loss, but its effectiveness is maximized when combined with a comprehensive weight-loss program.

  4. Removal of the Balloon:

    • After the prescribed duration, the balloon is removed through the mouth in a similar procedure to its placement. Once removed, individuals continue to follow the established lifestyle changes to maintain their weight loss.

Gastric balloon surgery is considered a less invasive option for weight loss, and it may be suitable for individuals who do not qualify for or prefer non-surgical interventions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the gastric balloon placed, and is it a surgical procedure?

  • The gastric balloon is placed through a non-surgical procedure. Using an endoscope, a deflated balloon is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach. Once in place, the balloon is filled with a sterile saline solution. The entire process is performed under conscious sedation, and patients can often go home on the same day.

How much weight can I expect to lose with a gastric balloon?

  • Weight loss with a gastric balloon varies among individuals. On average, patients may lose around 10% to 15% of their body weight. The amount of weight loss depends on factors such as individual adherence to dietary and lifestyle changes, overall health, and the duration the balloon remains in place (usually six months to a year).

What are the potential risks and side effects of gastric balloon surgery?

  • Risks include nausea, vomiting, gastric ulcers, balloon deflation or rupture (rare), obstruction, and an increased risk of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It's crucial to discuss these potential risks with a healthcare provider, and patients should be closely monitored by their medical team during the postoperative period.

Is the weight loss achieved with a gastric balloon permanent?

  • The weight loss achieved with a gastric balloon is often considered temporary. The balloon is typically left in place for six months to a year, during which patients work with healthcare professionals to make lifestyle changes. After balloon removal, maintaining the weight loss requires ongoing commitment to a healthy diet and regular exercise. The balloon serves as a tool to kickstart weight loss and lifestyle changes.
