Intragastric Balloon FAQ
How long does the gastric balloon turkey procedure take?
The intragastric balloon in Turkey usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes.
Will I feel any pain?
The procedure is usually performed under sedation and there is no possibility of having pain during the procedure.
Will I need special care when I arrive home?
You should be able to function completely on your own after your discharge. A small number of patients with physical disabilities before surgery sometimes require extra assistance.
When can I go back to work after gastric balloon turkey?
After surgery, most patients return to work after 1 week.
When can I start exercising again after surgery?
You will start exercising even in the hospital with slow short walks. You can slowly start exercising after 2-4 weeks.
How long should I wait to get pregnant after surgery?
Seeking to achieve significant weight loss during these periods can threaten the growth of your baby, so intragastric balloons (and other weight loss therapies) should be avoided until after pregnancy is concluded. If you fall pregnant with a balloon in place, the balloon is removed when it is safe to do so, typically in the second trimester. Otherwise, there have been no known problems for the mother or the baby from the presence of a gastric balloon.
How do I know if I am successful with my weight loss?
Success is not getting to your goal weight; it is getting to a “healthy” weight. If you have achieved a weight within approximately 40 pounds of your ideal body weight and maintain your weight, you are considered a success.
How will I know when to stop losing weight?
Your body knows how much weight it needs to lose. As long as you stick to your nutrition and exercise program, your body will adjust to the weight loss and stabilize at its appropriate weight.
Is it possible to regain my weight after gastric balloon turkey?
Remember, your gastric balloon private is only a tool. It is not a cure for obesity. Snacking, drinking with meals, drinking caffeinated and carbonated beverages, not drinking enough water in between meals and not exercising are common behaviours that may cause you to regain your weight.
Does a gastric balloon turkey guarantee permanent weight loss?
No. A small percentage of patients will regain a substantial portion of the weight that is lost. This happens usually when the patient does not follow the dietary guidelines in the months and years following the procedure.
What do I do about excess skin after weight loss?
Most people can minimize excess skin by maintaining healthy nutrition, aerobic exercises and weight training. But if you need to have excess skin removed, we can help you to get a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
Must I be in good health to qualify for the surgery?
No, many potential weight loss surgery patients aren’t in good health. Because of illnesses generated by their obesity. These illnesses include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, lung problems, and kidney difficulties.
Will I need any preoperative tests?
Yes. To make sure the best possible outcome, your surgeon will administer specific blood tests, a chest x-ray, an electrocardiogram (EKG) and more.
Will I need to take vitamins?
There is no malabsorption with the gastric balloon and because of that, you will not require the same types of supplements as gastric bypass patients. Usually, taking a daily multivitamin with minerals along with eating a balanced diet is sufficient for most patients. Women may sometimes require a calcium supplement as well.
How will the gastric balloon be removed?
The gastric balloon procedure is a temporary weight loss solution and completely reversible. The gastric balloon is removed through the mouth in the same way as it is placed. The procedure is done under sedation and is over quickly.
How long should the gastric balloon stay inside the stomach?
The intragastric balloon is a temporary procedure. This balloon can stay in place for six months. It is not recommended to leave it in the stomach longer than six months. If a longer period is desired, removal and insertion of a new unit are recommended.
Will the gastric balloon turkey limit my activities?
The gastric balloon weight loss process is essentially an outpatient procedure done in about 20-30 minutes and monitored by professional nursing staff in our recovery area. No surgical procedure is required. For the first 2 to 4 days you should not plan any heavy activity. After your body has adapted to the gastric balloon, you can continue your normal activities. We are going to emphasize regular exercise plus steps to enhance your health and help you look your very best.
Will I be able to feel the balloon in my stomach?
