Questions and answers

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric or intragastric balloon is a short-term medical device aimed to help patients lose excess weight without surgical intervention. It is temporary, but enough effective method to get rid of obesity along with diet and physical activity.

How does gastric balloon in Turkey work?

A soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope (tubular instrument passed through the mouth and throat). In the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline occupying the bigger part of the intragastric space. This gives the impression of satiety because the stomach is partially full. As a result, the individual eats less food in one sitting and begins to lose weight.

The balloon is situated in the stomach for 6 months, after which it is removed. It can be inserted for a second time after a break of 2 months. To achieve the maximum effect of this bariatric procedure, the patient needs to keep a diet.

The balloon insertion in Turkey takes an hour. The procedure requires hospitalization — the patient stays in a hospital for a day and then comes back home. 

Who benefits the gastric balloon procedure?

This method is not suitable for people with a very high body mass index (BMI). The recommended BMI for an intragastric balloon procedure starts from 30.

An intragastric balloon can also be used as a preparation for bariatric surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Some weight loss surgeries increase the risk of complications if the patient has severe obesity. In this case, the balloon can reduce excess weight to acceptable standards that allow doctors to perform bariatric surgery with less risk.

The balloon bariatric procedure is especially suitable for people who want to avoid surgery.

What are the main advantages of the gastric balloon method in Turkey?

  • installed through an endoscope without intervention
  • temporary option (6 months)
  • can be reused
  • can be used as preparation for bariatric surgery
  • low risk of complications
  • does not affect the digestive system
  • weight loss is slower than after bariatric surgery.

What are the contraindications for the procedure?

  • inflammatory bowel disease 
  • esophagitis
  • gastric and duodenal ulcers
  • stomach tumors
  • lower gastrointestinal bleeding
  • congenital pyloric stenosis, atresia, and stenosis of the small intestine
  • large hiatal hernia (esophageal opening of the diaphragm)
  • mental disorders
  • alcohol and drug addiction
  • constant intake of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, drugs that irritate the stomach, anticoagulants (medications that reduce blood clotting)
  • pregnancy or breastfeeding.

 

Learn more about the contraindications here.

How long is the rehabilitation period after intragastric balloon insertion?

The recovery time takes 3 days. After this period, the patient can return to work. Immediately after the gastric balloon procedure, the patient will need to limit food intake. During the first few days, the diet should consist only of liquid food. In 2 weeks after the procedure, the person can begin to try semi-solid, and then solid food.

The intragastric balloon implies that the patient will change the lifestyle and eating habits to healthier ones. The balloon makes it much easier because it consumes a lot of space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food intake.

The procedure for intragastric balloon installing also involves checks by a surgeon to avoid all sorts of complications.

In 6 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was installed. If the patient wants the process to be repeated to achieve a better result, then the balloon can be inserted again after a short break of 2 months.

What are the risks of the gastric balloon?

The intragastric balloon procedure causes fewer complications in contrast with other weight loss surgery methods. The most common among them are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain.

What results can you expect after the procedure?

The gastric juice destroys the balloon gradually, so the balloon can be put into the stomach for 6 months, and then it must be taken out. If a patient wants to continue balloon treatment, the procedure will be performed again but only in 2 months.

The procedure's effectiveness depends on the eating habits and the patient’s diet. The gastric balloon in Turkey shows high efficiency in people with not very high BMI, in particular:

  • lose about 20-50 pounds of excess weight
  • decrease body weight by 20%
  • decrease body mass index by 5%.

How much does a gastric balloon cost in Turkey?

Usually, the stomach balloon surgery cost includes consultation with a doctor and the procedure itself. In some clinics balloon packages and programs are available.

The balloon weight loss surgery cost varies depending on:

  • country

Each country offers different prices for the procedure. It depends on state economic development level and average price policy. Asian nations offer 3-4 times lower bariatric balloon cost in comparison with European ones.

  • city

The price for gastric balloon differs from city to city within a particular country. Larger and more economically developed megapolises offer 2 times higher balloon weight loss surgery cost than the smaller cities. However, the quality of the procedure is on the same level.

  • private or state hospital

Clinics are divided into private and state ones. The bariatric balloon cost in state hospitals can be 2 times lower than in private clinics. But the management quality in state centers is also lower. It depends on the country where a hospital is located. Specify the information on at the clinic contact center and read gastric balloon surgery reviews when choosing a hospital.

  • doctor’s qualification

The best bariatric doctors undergo international training and have vast experience. The balloon weight loss surgery cost is higher when a specialist with an excellent reputation performs the procedure.

How to choose the best hospital for balloon procedure?

I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

There was very little English spoken, and very little explanation on the day as to what would happen. I went for the gastric balloon procedure, and absolutely no checks were performed on me to check my weight, blood pressure or anything.

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋
