Bariatric weight loss nonsurgical

A gastric balloon is a newer kind of non-surgical procedure in which 1 to 3 silicone balloons are temporarily placed inside the stomach to make less room for food. This is a same day procedure.
This procedure is done under light anesthesia. The surgeon will insert the deflated balloon down the esophagus and into the stomach. The balloon is filled with a sterile fluid using a small filling tube. After six months, the balloon is deflated and removed in the same way it was inserted.
