What is a gastric balloon?

A gastric balloon is used in patients who are obese. It consists of a soft, elastic silicone. This is used on an outpatient basis by gastroscopy and placed in the upper half of the stomach. The balloon is then filled with saline, which reduces the volume of the stomach. As a result, the amount of food is reduced and the patient becomes full more quickly.
