Advantages & benefits of Gastric Balloon in Tijuana Mexico.

  • 30 MINUTES



The Intra-Gastric Balloon procedure in Mexico takes about 20 to 30 minutes. The patient may lose up to 30% of their excess weight in 6 months.

*Notice the results may vary for each patient depending on many factors related to race, age, health, gender, and whether or not the patient follows the doctor’s post-operative instructions.

The Gastric Balloon in Tijuana Mexico

The Gastric Balloon in Tijuana Mexico is a procedure where a deflated balloon is inserted through the patient’s mouth and down the esophagus to the stomach. Once in the stomach, the balloon is expanded, causing the patient to feel fuller sooner while eating, eat less, and therefore may lose weight. With this procedure, the patient may lose about 30% of their excess weight in a short period of time and may have health improvement for diabetes, joint/bone disease, and heart-related issues.

However, this procedure does not provide very effective weight loss on a long-term basis, because the balloon has to be removed after 6 months, causing the patient to possibly have weight regain if the patient does not change their diet and lifestyle after the balloon removal.

The difference between the Intra-Gastric Balloon procedure and other weight loss surgeries is that with the Gastric Balloon the doctor doesn’t remove any part of the stomach, and there are no incisions in the body, promoting a faster recovery. Although this procedure looks like the ideal procedure for weight loss, Dr. Hidalgo recommends you consider Gastric Sleeve surgery or Gastric Bypass surgery in Tijuana Mexico for better long-term results.

The patient needs just 3 days of inactivity for a full recovery.
