Gastric Balloon in Turkey
The treatment of overweight with a gastric balloon has been used in obesity clinics in Antalya since the 1950s. The bariatric procedure is based on a balloon-shaped silicone shell that is inserted into the stomach and filled with air or a physiological fluid. By filling a large part of the stomach, the gastric balloon reduces its receptivity and stops the feeling of hunger. In contrast to other methods of stomach reduction in Turkey, the gastric balloon can be removed at any time after reaching the target weight and adopting new eating habits.
