Intragastric balloon for fat removal
The intragastric balloon is designed to provide short–term weight loss therapy.
The silicone balloon is placed endoscopically (through the mouth and oesophagus under heavy sedation) and filled with liquid so it partially fills the stomach and creates a feeling of fullness.
The maximum time a balloon can be left in place is 6 months, after which it must be removed.
There are two main indications for using an intragastric balloon that are applied in the UK:
Pre–surgery for weight loss in severely obese patients prior to obesity or other surgery, in order to reduce surgical risk.
Weight loss in obese patients who have significant health risks related to their obesity and who have failed to achieve and maintain weight loss with a supervised weight–control programme or who are not candidates for obesity surgery.
