About the balloon, insertion and removal of the balloon

Gastric balloon is a special, mechanical and chemical (stomach acid, digestive enzymes, food) resistant, flexible, elastic, tissue-friendly spherical container.

It is endoscopically emptied into the stomach and then filled with air or colored physiological saline, usually up to a volume of 500-600 ml. Both fillers have their advantages. Once filled, the balloon is in the correct position and after the endoscope is removed, it actually moves freely in the stomach, reducing its volume and therefore the amount of food taken. Insertion takes 15-30 minutes under anesthesia. You can leave your home after 1-2 hours of observation.

It is recommended to take an antacid (PPI) until the balloon comes out. Depending on your personal sensitivity, you may get used to this “foreign body” feeling within a few days.

Nausea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, pain may occur for several days.
After 6 months, the balloon is removed endoscopically, again under anesthesia, first pierced with a special spear and aspirated from the esophagus.
