How does it work?
A temporary balloon is inserted down the esophagus into your stomach through a simple endoscopy procedure. The balloon is filled with saline to the size of a grapefruit and remains in place for 6 months. This encourages your body to adapt to healthier meal portions, making you feel full with minimal side effects. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes, 1-2 hour recovery time from a mild sedation, and you go home the same day. Patients average losing up to 3x the weight of diet and exercise alone.
