The non-surgical True Balloon weight loss procedure is performed by one of our highly-trained physicians in an outpatient medical setting while the patient is under mild sedation. A thin and deflated balloon is placed into the stomach using a specially designed, flexible tool called an endoscope.

The balloon is then filled with saline and stays in the stomach for 6 months helping you feel satisfied with smaller meals. So you’ll eat less and lose weight quickly.
