It is applied to patients who are overweight and cannot have surgery due to their excess weight, with the aim of losing weight quickly before surgery. Gastric balloon, a water-filled balloon, is placed in the stomach of the patient with a gastroscopy device, thus restricting the patient’s food intake.
Like all surgical procedures, there is a risk of obesity surgery, even if it is tiny. However, since the success rate is above 98%, this low risk does not affect the operation decision of the patients much.
Since eating and drinking are restricted after obesity surgeries, patients lose weight from the 1st month following the operation. However, the perception that weight will never be gained after the surgery is wrong. If patients ignore their diet after surgery, they will continue to gain weight for a while.
