Who is Gastric Balloon For?
When you’re researching the different weight loss methods, it can get really confusing. There are so many different procedures and technical terms that it can be tough to understand every aspect of the process. At Beverly Hills Physicians, we believe it’s important that every patient feel comfortable knowing what procedures are right for them. The two major options we offer are surgical and non-surgical procedures. The surgical procedures, like gastric sleeve, are only available to those who qualify with a BMI of at least 35 with accompanying obesity-related illness, like heart disease or diabetes.
The non-surgical method of weight loss that’s earning lots of attention from people all over the world is the gastric balloon. This procedure is temporary, lasting only 6 months. It’s perfect for anybody who doesn’t fall into the category of “obese” but still need to lose weight for their own health and happiness. During the procedure, a small balloon is placed in the stomach through the mouth. Once safely inside, the balloon is inflated. This causes your stomach to feel fuller, which will make you eat less. You’ll be amazed at how much weight you can lose over a period of 6 months when you’re not as hungry as usual.
