Takes Up the Space and Reduces the Volume

A swallowable gastric balloon is a treatment for overweight people, without a surgical procedure. Being overweight is one of the biggest barriers to a healthy life. One of the reasons that makes it difficult to lose weight is because of our meal portions and not being active enough to get rid of it.

As a result of the swallowable gastric balloon taking up space in the stomach, the portions are reduced to the ideal size, and the weight that turns into an obstacle begins to disappear in a healthy way. It is the meaning of feeling full faster. Small portions will become enough to be full, as the space of the stomach is reduced with the swallowable gastric balloon. Since the gastric emptying takes a long amount of time, the time to stay full also increases.

To sum up, it gives a longer feeling of satiety (fullness) with less portions. Painless and healthier weight loss is achieved with swallowable gastric balloons applied under the supervision of a specialist physician at CLINICTON.

The swallowable gastric balloon stays in the stomach for a period of 4 months. Air gets taken out of the balloon, before the balloon gets taken out from a patient. During this period of time, you can lose about 10-15% of your weight. According to studies, most of the weight lost in the stomach balloon method is in the first 4 months.

After 4 months, the valve at the mouth of the balloon opens by itself and the balloon slowly empties. It takes 7-10 days for the balloon to completely empty.
