Why this procedure?
There’s no shame in asking for a little help. Maybe you’ve been trying to lose weight for a while now and you haven’t succeeded at all. This has probably left you feeling bad about yourself and quite desperate. If that’s what you’re going through right now, there’s a bariatric technique that will help you give that last step towards weight loss: it’s called the gastric balloon.
Through this procedure, you’ll feel satisfied with less amount of food that you used to, making weight loss a walk through the park, instead of the nightmare it has been.
The best part is that you can have this on for as long as you’d like; it is not permanent, although it is generally removed after six months. This makes it the perfect method for losing weight fast and in a healthy way.
What happens during the gastric ballon surgery?
During this procedure, our surgeons insert a gastric balloon through the patient’s mouth and inflate it with saline solution when it reaches the stomach, making it the size of a grape fruit. This reduces the patient’s feelings of hunger, so less food is required to make him/her feel satisfied.
Only in the first 6 months, you can expect to lose from 20 to 40 pounds.

This procedure is about to change your life. Soon you’ll lose so much weight, you won’t recognize yourself. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First, there are some things you should know:
After you’ve had the gastric balloon inserted, you may experience cramps, nausea and some stomach tension. These are perfectly normal side effects, but will go away with the medication prescribed by your doctor. Also, you’ll be asked to go on a liquid diet during a week after the procedure, but our nutritionist will give you advice on what to eat.
Don’t forget to follow your doctor’s instructions and to attend every one of your appointments. We need to work as a team to achieve the ultimate results.
(It is important to note that recovery specifications may vary depending on the procedure and the patient; your doctor will walk you through the details of your recovery process.)
When can I go back to work and resume my normal activities?
You’ll be able to return to your normal activities 1 week after the surgery.
Can I get a tan?
It is very important to avoid long sun exposure for a considerable amount of time after the surgery to prevent pigmentation on the scars. Depending on the procedure, you’ll doctor will tell you exactly for how long you must avoid this.
Should I consider a specific time of the year to do my procedure?
Depending on the chosen procedure, some recoveries do better on winter, while others do better on the summer time. Ask your doctor for the option that better suits your case. You should also consider periods of time in which you’ll have time to relax, like the holidays, for example.
