In addition to being an aesthetic problem, obesity is mainly a health problem and if left untreated, it causes high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, joint diseases and psychological disorders. Long-term use of drugs used in the treatment of obesity creates problems because of their side effects. The attenuating gastric balloon system (placement of a balloon in the stomach) is an effective method of weight loss that is increasingly preferred in the treatment of obesity. Thanks to this method, stomach reduction surgeries called bariatric surgery have started to be abandoned in many centers. The method can be easily applied by an experienced gastroenterologist using only the endoscope without requiring any surgical intervention. This method is particularly suitable for patients in whom surgery is at risk due to obesity and other accompanying diseases. Since the balloon in the stomach takes up space in the stomach, it gives a feeling of early satiety and satiety, causing the patient to consume less food and thus lose weight. When adequate weight loss is achieved, usually no longer than 6 months, the balloon is deflated via the endoscope and removed from the stomach. Weight loss after 6 months of follow-up is different for each patient and can range from 15kg to 80kg.
How is the Slimming Gastric Balloon Applied?
While the balloon is deflated, it is swallowed by mouth and delivered to the stomach, and then the balloon is inflated with sterile water or air through the catheter attached to the balloon. After the balloon reaches sufficient volume, the catheter is separated from the balloon by means of the mechanism on it and withdrawn and the balloon is left in the stomach. You will be given sedatives and pain relievers before the procedure so that you do not feel pain during the procedure. Patients who have a balloon placed in their stomach can start eating and continue their daily lives a few hours after the procedure.
Those who have a debilitating gastric balloon are advised to chew food thoroughly, eat slowly, consume sufficient fluids, and stay away from carbohydrate drinks. Food should not be taken between meals, late at night and at least two hours before bedtime should not eat. Drinking water between meals will help clean the food accumulated on the surface of the balloon in the stomach. It is recommended to do regular exercise (at least 15 minutes walking) every day. When drugs such as stomach irritating aspirin and antirheumatic drugs are used, protective drugs should be taken together. Since insufficient food intake may lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies in some patients, it is appropriate to monitor the patients in this respect and to give vitamin supplements when necessary.
