How is Gastric Balloon Procedure Performed?

Before the gastric balloon is applied to the patient, a detailed evaluation is made by specialist doctors. This evaluation includes endoscopic imaging methods to determine whether the patient has any other health problems in his stomach in addition to his general health condition. If there is another health problem such as reflux, gastritis, or ulcer, this problem must be treated first. Then, gastric balloon placement can be performed.

Gastric balloon placement usually does not require general anesthesia. Since the patient is under the influence of sedation, he does not feel any pain when the balloon is placed. Nowadays, the gastric balloon can be placed in the stomach by two different methods.

How to Remove Gastric Balloon?

At the end of the 6-month period, before the balloon is removed by endoscopic method under sedo anesthesia, a liquid diet is started for 3 days in order to clear the food residues adhering around the balloon. On the day of the procedure, the liquid in the balloon is evacuated using an endoscopic method with an apparatus sent to the stomach. Then, the balloon is captured with a special holder and taken out of the stomach. This fast and effective procedure usually takes 15-20 minutes and after its completion, the patient can return to normal life within 1-2 hours.

On the day of the procedure, the patient is prepared for endoscopy using a special apparatus that is sent into the stomach. With the endoscopic method, the liquid accumulated in the balloon is drained through this apparatus. Then, the balloon is captured with the help of a special holder and taken out of the stomach. At this stage, the process usually takes about 15-20 minutes.

    I live in Lyon, France. I came to Istanbul for Rhinoplasty Operation. Sona Health picked me up from the airport with a VIP vehicle. I stayed in a 5-star hotel in Nişantaşı. My mother also stayed with me. At Sona Clinic, Dr. Esma took very good care of me. Frankly, I was very scared at first, but the professionalism, friendly face, interest and concern of this team took away all my stress. The result was perfect and I loved it. I would like to thank Sona Health team for everything.
