Gastric Ballon

Gastric Ballon with Ikon Health Care Turkey

Gastric balloon, also known as intragastric balloon, is a non-surgical weight loss procedure that involves placing a balloon in the stomach to reduce its capacity and promote feelings of fullness. This procedure is also offered by some medical tourism providers.

As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with traveling for gastric balloon insertion. Complications such as balloon deflation, perforation of the stomach, and gastric obstruction can occur, and there may be language barriers, cultural differences, and difficulties obtaining follow-up care.

However, gastric balloon insertion is generally considered safer and less invasive than weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy. It also requires less recovery time and may be a viable option for patients who do not want to undergo surgery.

Some countries, such as Mexico, Turkey, and Thailand, offer gastric balloon insertion at a lower cost than in many Western countries. However, it’s important to carefully research the medical facility and the credentials of the healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.

It’s also important to note that the gastric balloon is a temporary measure and must be removed after a certain period of time. Long-term weight loss success requires lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and regular exercise.

In summary, while health tourism can be an option for some individuals seeking gastric balloon insertion, it’s important to carefully weigh the risks and benefits and to thoroughly research the medical facility and the healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
