Life Changing Gastric Balloon Procedure Package in Monterrey, Mexico
Overview of Gastric Balloon Procedure
The gastric balloon procedure is a method that can greatly decrease food intake and consists in introducing a silicone balloon into the patient's stomach. This is a nonsurgical procedure, performed through endoscopy. A deflated balloon is inserted through the patient's mouth, while he/she is under some degree of sedation. Having reached the stomach, the balloon is filled with 400-700 cc of saline and methylene blue. The balloon is released from the tube, closed tightly and remains floating in the stomach, filling a significant part of it. The patient will feel full after ingesting a small amount of food.
The silicone balloon 'occupies' about two-thirds of the stomach capacity. After six to twelve months, the balloon must be removed because it sits in an acidic environment (gastric juice) and gets thinner.
