Intra Gastric Balloon

Intra Gastric Balloon

An intra-gastric balloon is an evolutionary technique in the field of weight-loss procedure. In this procedure, a saline-filled silicone balloon is placed inside the stomach that helps to lose weight by limiting the intake of food. This also makes the stomach feel fuller faster. It is an option for people dealing with overweight or is obese and for those where diet and exercise haven't worked much.

However, like other weight-loss procedures, this procedure requires a healthier lifestyle to be followed. Healthy changes to the diet are required along with regular exercise to help ensure the long-term success of the intra-gastric balloon procedure.
