This is one of the most well-known surgeries in people with high body fat. This procedure includes reducing the size and surface of the stomach and adjusting digestion, which leads to a decrease in calories consumed. The patient is placed under general anesthesia, then an internal telescope is placed to create small holes on the sides and top of the stomach. This process lasts between an hour and a half and three hours.
The process is very simple, unlike its name, it is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about an hour and a half, This process does not have any serious side effects, removing part of the stomach and stick to the remaining limbs , which reduces the size of the stomach, and also It also reduces the amount of food and liquids and reduces the feeling of hunger. because what we have removed is the part responsible for the secretion of the hormone of hunger, which automatically leads to weight loss.

It should be noted that the process of the balloon lasts 6 to 12 months, then the balloon must be removed and a new balloon must be put in place, because the old silicone balloon expires.
