Most popular obesity surgery available with MEDICAL TRAVEL in the Czech Republic

Gastric balloon

Gastric balloon (patient must have BMI higher than 30) is a medically supervised weight loss approach where a soft silicone balloon is placed into the stomach. The balloon works as a filling inside the stomach, creating a lack of hunger and feeling of fullness which will help to decrease your food intake and lose weight without additional surgery. This completely reversible procedure is considered minimally invasive and is introduced for a period of 6 months. During this period patients can achieve weight loss of 10 - 30 kilograms. Gastric balloon procedure is performed under intravenous sedation and lasts approximately 20 minutes.
