When dieting and exercise or nutrition and fitness aren’t doing the trick, bariatric surgery is often the best way to lose fat. Gastric Balloons, one type of bariatric operation, continue to become a preferred method of weight loss. While weight loss balloons have countless benefits, the safety of the procedure is a major component that is rarely discussed. While other weight loss solutions involve possible complications and a decently high level or risk due to surgery, the non-surgical Gastric Balloon procedure allows for minimal risk of complications while guaranteeing efficient results.
Because a Gastric Balloon procedure is non-surgical, there is far less risk involved compared to other bariatric surgeries like a Gastric Bypass or Gastric Sleeve. In addition, when other weight loss procedures involve hospital recovery between 2-4 weeks due to surgery, Gastric Balloon procedures will have you walking out of the hospital within the hour!
Gastric Balloon vs. Gastric Sleeve
Furthermore, Gastric Sleeve operations are non reversible, whereas the Gastric Balloon procedure can be removed. Gastric Sleeve operations remove between 70% and 80% of your stomach in order to create less space for your food storage; however, the same result is accomplished with a non-surgical Gastric Balloon with far less risk involved.
Gastric Balloon vs. Gastric Bypass
Another bariatric procedure, the Gastric Bypass operation, involves attaching a small pouch to your intestine in order to navigate around the stomach; once again, acting as a permanent surgery and requiring hospital recovery time. As you can see, the Gastric Balloon procedure proves to be the safest option for reaching your weight loss goals.
