Gastric balloon is an endoscopic procedure that has been performed for many years. The balloon is inserted into the stomach and inflated. According to the process to be applied, there are different types of balloons of different specifications in different brands.

Gastric Balloon inflated with air: It is placed in the stomach with an endoscopy in a decayed state and inflated with air in an amount ranging from 500-700 cc according to the capacity of the person’s stomach.  There is a relief valve mechanism on the balloon, such as on the car wheel, and the air may decrease over time. Generally it should be removed within 6-8 months. It is inconvenient to stay for a long time because it causes damage to the stomach wall.

Gastric Balloon inflated with liquid: The balloon is inflated with liquid in the stomach. It gives better results than an inflated balloon because it makes weight. There is less risk of fluid leakage from the valve mechanism. There may be a decrease in volume in the balloon, which is inflated with liquid and air over time. The volume reduction in the balloon may decrease the weight loss rate. The balloon, which is inflated with liquid, is removed after 6-8 months.

Reconfigurable Gastric Balloon: There is a mechanism on the gastric balloon that provides the opportunity to decrease and increase the water volume. It can remain in the stomach for a long time, such as 1 year, and can be re-inflated by endoscopy when its volume decreases.
