Gastric Balloon Placement

As Alara Health Group, we aim to support our patients’ weight loss processes and help them lead a healthy life with gastric balloon (gastric balloon) application. With our expert team and the latest medical techniques, we offer solutions tailored to the needs of each patient.

What is a Gastric Balloon?

A gastric balloon is an inflatable balloon that is inserted endoscopically into the stomach and provides a feeling of satiety by reducing stomach volume. Once inserted into the stomach, the balloon is filled with liquid and reduces the stomach capacity, allowing patients to feel full with less food. The gastric balloon is a non-surgical and temporary weight loss method.

Process Stages

  1. Evaluation and Planning: In the first stage, a detailed interview and health assessment with your doctor will determine whether you are suitable for gastric balloon procedure. You will be informed about the risks and benefits of the procedure.
  2. Preparation: Before the procedure, necessary instructions are given to prepare the stomach. Generally, you may need to fast for a few hours before the procedure.
  3. Balloon Placement: The gastric balloon procedure is performed endoscopically. In this procedure performed under sedation, the balloon is inserted into the stomach with an endoscope device and inflated with liquid. The procedure usually takes 20-30 minutes.
  4. Recovery Process: Patients are usually discharged on the same day after the procedure. There may be side effects such as mild discomfort, nausea and vomiting, but these conditions pass in a short time.


  1. Non-Surgical Method: Since the gastric balloon is a non-surgical procedure, the healing process is fast and surgical risks are minimal.

  2. Weight Loss Support: Gastric balloon supports weight loss and provides more effective results with diet.

  3. Decreased Feeling of Hunger: Thanks to the decrease in stomach volume, the feeling of hunger decreases and provides a feeling of satiety for a longer period of time.
