GASTRIC BALLOON SURGERY
Gastric Balloon (also called intragastric or stomach balloon) is a temporary, removable device that is placed in the stomach by endoscopy (through the mouth) and can remain for up to six months. Patients with a BMI above 30 are eligible for a gastric balloon surgery.
Our board certified surgeons meet with patients and discuss the best options for getting the best results from the gastric balloon procedure in Tijuana Mexico.
We would recommend at least a couple of days off work following your gastric balloon fitting. Often patients take a week. Everyone is different in their general health and wellbeing as well as their daily job and its responsibilities.
Only you can judge when you’re ready to return to work. It may be that you are able to go back and perform light duties after the first few days or you may wish to take an extended amount of time off just to ensure your full recovery.
