Bariatric weight loss nonsurgical - Gastric balloon information and locations in Mexico

Non-surgical weight loss procedures have been developed to help people lose weight without having to undergo surgery, and one of these is the gastric balloon.
The procedure involves the insertion of one to three silicone balloons into the stomach to reduce its capacity and restrict the amount of food that can be consumed.
This is a same-day procedure that is performed under light anesthesia, and the deflated balloons are inserted through the esophagus into the stomach and then filled with a sterile fluid using a small tube. After six months, the balloons are removed by deflating them and removing them in the same way they were inserted.
