Step-by-step guide for the gastric balloon procedure at Novomed

  • Initial Consultation: Your weight loss journey starts with an initial consultation with our bariatric specialist. During this visit, we will assess your medical history, discuss your weight loss goals, and determine if the gastric balloon is the right weight loss option for you.
  • Procedure Day: On the day of the procedure, our medical team will place the deflated gastric balloon into your stomach (using a capsule or endoscope). Once it is in position, the balloon will be inflated with a sterile saline solution, taking up space in your stomach.
  • Recovery and Monitoring: The procedure typically takes around 20-30 minutes, and you can go home on the same day. You may experience some discomfort in the initial days after the procedure, but our team will provide thorough aftercare instructions and schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
  • Balloon Removal: Depending on the type of gastric balloon, the balloon will be removed using the endoscopic procedure or will pass naturally out of your body through the digestive system. During the period prior to removing the balloon, you will work closely with our nutritionists and support team to develop healthy eating habits and make lifestyle changes for long-term success.

Popular Gastric Balloons at Novomed

Orbera Balloon

The Orbera Balloon is a FDA-approved intragastric balloon system designed to jumpstart weight loss for those struggling with obesity. The procedure involves placing a soft, silicone balloon in the stomach, occupying space and reducing the amount of food the stomach can hold. This leads to earlier feelings of fullness, allowing patients to control their portion sizes and adopt healthier eating habits.

Key features of the Orbera Balloon at Novomed:

  • Non-surgical: The entire procedure is performed endoscopically, without the need for incisions or general anesthesia, making it a safe and convenient option for many individuals.
  • Comprehensive support: Our team of experienced healthcare professionals, including dietitians and psychologists, will provide ongoing support and guidance throughout your weight loss journey.
  • Proven results: Clinical studies have shown that patients who undergo the Orbera Balloon procedure typically lose 3x more weight compared to those who rely on diet and exercise alone.

Elipse Balloon

The Elipse Balloon is a unique and innovative weight loss option that offers a hassle-free and non-invasive approach to gastric balloons. Unlike other balloons, the Elipse Balloon does not require endoscopy or anesthesia for placement or removal. Instead, it is swallowed in the form of a capsule and inflated remotely by the doctor.

Key features of the Elipse Balloon at Novomed:

  • No endoscopy or anesthesia: The entire procedure is needle-free, making it an attractive option for those who may be hesitant about traditional gastric balloon placement methods.
  • Convenience: The balloon is automatically deflated and excreted naturally after approximately 16 weeks, removing the need for a separate removal procedure.
  • Safe and effective: The Elipse Balloon has demonstrated significant weight loss results in clinical trials, helping patients achieve their weight loss goals.
