The Intragastric Balloon System is a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical alternative for the treatment of obesity. It is indicated for temporary use in mild to moderately obese patients (10 to 50 lbs of overweight) who have significant health risks related to their obesity and have failed to achieve and maintain weight loss with a supervised weight control program alone.
The Intragastric Balloon is both safe and efficacious.
The BIB System balloon is saline-filled through endoscopy with a self-sealing valve.
It is round, smooth, no edges.
Made of durable, elastic, high quality silicone.
Designed for a treatment period of up to six months using a single balloon.
It is inflatable from 400cc to 700cc during initial placement.
Can be inflated to 400cc for one patient and to 700cc for another, or anywhere in between.
Continuously undergoes extensive quality control.
The BIB System balloon filled with 400 cc to 700 cc of saline provides a significant enough “presence” in the stomach to produce a feeling of satiety.
A feeling of fullness is present most of the time and a sensation of having eaten a full meal occurs after consuming only 4 or 5 ounces of food at any one time.
In conclusion, you have accomplished what surgery would, but with a non-surgical procedure that is totally reversible.
