Questions & Answers

Gastric Balloon is suitable for candidates with a BMI between 27 and 40, and the individual should be 22 years or older.

Gastric Balloon and Gastric Sleeve are distinct procedures catering to different BMI ranges. Gastric Sleeve is reserved for individuals with a BMI of 40 or higher and involves surgery, carrying inherent surgical risks. In comparison, Gastric Balloon is considered safer with minimal complications, making it a favorable choice for those with a BMI between 27 and 40.

Patients have been shown to lose up to 47% of their excess weight in six months after the gastric balloon. This is an average and it can be more or less according to your diet, exercise and lifestyle.

The initial four weeks following a gastric balloon procedure involve a specific diet. The first two weeks focus on a clear liquid diet, followed by the gradual introduction of soft pureed foods in the subsequent two weeks. Solid foods are reintroduced afterward.

Gastric balloon treatment is generally safe, with minimal complications. Potential side effects include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. These reactions are natural responses to the presence of the balloon and often subside within a few days.

No, a gastric balloon will not burst. Although resistant to stomach acid, there is a slight risk of puncture. In the event of a rupture, the balloon is removed from the stomach.

While individuals do not feel pain during the sedated procedure, some may experience discomfort during balloon inflation. Mild discomfort lasting 3-4 days is reported by about one-third of people after balloon insertion.

The duration varies between 4-6 or 12 months, depending on the type of gastric balloon.

Gastric balloon insertion is not recommended during breastfeeding due to potential impacts on milk quantity and quality from the post-balloon diet.

Individuals typically return to daily life and work within days.
