The intragastric balloon is a sphere of flexible and soft silicone, which is introduced into the stomach, through an endoscopy, in order to generate a feeling of fullness or satiety so that the consumption of food is reduced, which facilitates the process of weight loss . It requires a commitment on the part of the patient during the 6 months of treatment to reeducate their behavior, with the purpose of reducing the weight and maintaining this loss once the balloon is removed.
The treatment with gastric balloon should be accompanied by specialists who support the patient in order to help him recover an adequate weight, good eating habits and physical activity.
