The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles is Offering Gastric Balloons in Los Angeles
If you have exhausted various weight loss programs, and are uncomfortable with the idea of surgery, you should consider the gastric balloon in Los Angeles. This non-surgical procedure uses balloons to create a feeling of fullness in your stomach. As a result, you lose weight with ease because you are eating less.
What is the procedure for the gastric balloon in Los Angeles?
The process begins with a review of your medical history. Dr. David Davtyan will also explain the risks and benefits of the procedure. How the balloon is placed depends on the type of balloon used. There are a number of different gastric balloons to choose from. Two frequently used gastric balloons are the Orbera balloon and the Obalon balloon.
If you select for your procedure the Orbera balloon in Los Angeles, you will first receive a mild sedative, then the doctor will insert a deflated balloon endoscopically into your stomach. The doctor will then inflate the balloon with saline. The balloon stays in your stomach for six months, after which Dr. Davtyan will remove it endoscopically.

Every two weeks the procedures are repeated until all three balloons are in place. Obalon gastric balloons are kept for six months from the insertion of the first balloon, after which time they are removed endoscopically at The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles.
What are the benefits of the Gastric Balloon for weight loss?
1. Better Health
You are probably aware that excess weight can lead to serious health problems like cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, gallstones, impotence, infertility, depression, GERD (Acid Reflux Disease), osteoarthritis, and more. The gastric balloon can decrease your appetite, reduce your portion size, and lead to weight loss which in turn will reduce/reverse all these obesity related diseases.
