Gastric Balloon Procedure
Galenia offers the Gastric Balloon Procedure. This procedure has become very popular in Mexico as an alternative to bariatric surgery.
The gastric balloon procedure is non-invasive and does not require general anesthetic or an overnight stay in hospital. The balloon itself is a soft, flexible silicone balloon which can be filled with a saline solution or air. This inflated balloon reduces the capacity of the stomach and causes feelings of fullness early on whilst eating. As a result, smaller portions of food are consumed and weight is lost.
The balloon remains in the stomach for a maximum of 6 months. The most popular type of balloon is the Bio Enterics Intragastric Balloon which is widely used by clinics and hospitals everywhere. It is removed via a reverse procedure: the balloon is deflated and then drawn up through the endoscope.
Gastric Balloon Candidates
Gastric balloons are ideal for people who have tried to lose weight by dieting and exercise, but have failed to achieve their desired weight loss targets. They are suitable for people with a BMI of over 25, while gastric bands and gastric bypass surgery are only suitable for people with a BMI in excess of 35.
Gastric Balloon Benefits
A recently published study of patients who underwent a gastric balloon procedure in Mexico showed an average weight loss of 35-40% It can also improve any obesity-related conditions such as sleep apnoea, high blood pressure, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and arthritis.
