Information About the Most Popular Gastric Balloon Procedures

Dermatology and Medical Aesthetics

What is Gastric Balloon?

Intragastric balloon placement is a saline-filled silicone balloon placed in your stomach, restricting your eating. Thus it is a bariatric procedure aimed at helping you lose weight. Intragastric balloon is the only obesity treatment method that does not require any anesthesia, endoscopy or surgical intervention.

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

In the Obalon gastric balloon system, instead of endoscopically placing the balloon in the stomach, the surgeon makes the patient swallow the balloon that has the same size of 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 Spatz3 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 it 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.
