Intra Gastric Balloon in Mexico

intra gastric balloon mexico Intra Gastric Balloon for Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico

The Gastric Balloon procedure in Mexico, is one of the ways a patient may lose a small amount of weight over a 6 month period.  With this outpatient procedure, Dr. Hidalgo will go in and place a gastric balloon through an endoscopic procedure.  The procedure lasts about 20 minutes and once the balloon is inflated the stomach will feel full.  This procedure is an option for weight loss surgery in Mexico; however it is not the best option for weight loss.  The main reason is the inter gastric balloon can only stay in the stomach for 6 months at which time it needs to be removed and the patient typically will start regaining weight at that point.  This procedure is ideal for patients who are not set on undergoing bariatric surgery but if you really do need to lose weight, the gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico is a much more viable option.

The gastric balloon is:
1)  Non-surgical: The balloon is inserted orally into your stomach in a fast and efficient manner.
2)  Non-invasive: This procedure requires such mild work that many can go home the same day.
3) Temporary: The balloon only remains within the stomach for 6 months before removal.
