Everyone knows that an active lifestyle is the best and healthiest way to lose weight. In spite of this conventional wisdom, however, exercise and nutrition counseling sometimes fail to do the trick, necessitating more radical weight loss interventions. The gastric balloon is an advanced, temporary weight loss procedure that yields dramatic weight loss results without any surgical intervention.
The procedure is specifically designed to “bridge the gap” between a dietary regimen and more invasive weight loss surgeries. When placed into the stomach, the gastric balloon produces the effect of fullness, leading the patients to consume less food. The device can be easily removed after a period of time, affording an extremely effective way to treat obesity without any surgery.
