INTRAGASTRIC BALLOON IS A WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM THAT CAN AN ALTERNATIVE TO WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
Do you suffer from overweight with BMI of over 27, and have you considered an obesity surgery? So, a Gastriball gastric balloon can be the optimal solution for you. Gastriball can be termed an obesity operation with balloon but does not require surgical intervention and therefore painless and as normal obesity surgery, the surgery limits the space in the stomach and thereby your overall calorie intake.
The method is used in overweight adult patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30-40 kg/m2 and who have not been in a position to lose weight through diet and exercise.
Orbera’s intragastric balloon system takes up space in the stomach in order to help patients lose weight. The balloon is temporary and should be removed after 6 months.
