If you have failed to lose weight through conventional means such as diet and exercise, the gastric balloons would be an excellent solution for you.
The Gastric balloon is a non-surgical, weight-loss option for over-weight patients. If you have a body mass index [see our BMI calculator] of 27 or more and have failed to lose weight using other methods, this might be an ideal solution for you. There are 2 kinds of gastric balloons, the latest is Elipse balloon, which is a capsule balloon, needs only 15 minutes for placement and is done under Xray, it doesn’t need endoscopy or sedation. The best part is that there is no need to remove as it passes out naturally after 4 months.
The other kind of gastric balloon is endoscopic balloon(Orbera, Lax Ball, Spatz). Which is placed using a endoscope and is removed after 6-12 months using endoscope, and you have to visit the hospital for a few hours only.
