There are several surgical and minimally invasive weight-loss options available. Including gastric balloon procedures, some can be a bit scary to people who are uncomfortable with the extent of the work required for those procedures and the amount of recovery time needed afterwards.
The gastric balloon, on the other hand, offers a non-surgical and gentle approach to rapid weight loss. The procedure works by endoscopically placing an empty silicon balloon into your stomach through your esophagus. The balloon is filled with a saline solution and effectively fills up a large portion of your stomach so you feel fuller after eating less food.
Once you have reached your goal weight, the balloon can be easily removed to allow you to return to a completely normal lifestyle. Contact Möein Surgical Arts to schedule a consultation for your gastric balloon procedure with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Babak Moein.
