No matter how it looks on the outside, the quality of life is always affected. We at Aestehtic-Travel in Antalya would like to offer you various options for getting your life and your feel-good weight back under control with the help of a surgical procedure – just get in touch with us!

One of the restrictive techniques of gastric surgery in Turkey that we offer our patients in Turkey is the so-called gastric balloon in Turkey. A gastric balloon in Turkey is an oval capsule that you can simply swallow or that can be inserted by a specialist via gastroscopy. It is then filled with a suitable substance. This is usually a gas or air mixture, or a saline solution. As a gastric balloon in Turkey is only a minor procedure lasting around 30 minutes, you can leave our practice on the same day. To avoid risks, the gastric balloon will be removed by your specialist in Turkey after around 3-6 months. This is particularly necessary as it can otherwise lead to possible irritation of the gastric mucosa, which can cause nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting.
