How Does the Gastric Balloon Work?
Gastric Balloons are silicone devices placed in the stomach for a duration of up to six months. The balloon takes up space in the stomach to help patients feel full, with less hunger and fewer cravings. An individualized diet and exercise plan is also part of the comprehensive gastric balloon program. Weight loss is achieved through appetite control, while patients learn healthy habits and skills to maintain weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.
