/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Recent medical research suggests that weight loss procedures like gastric balloon and gastric sleeve are gaining popularity in India
. This popularity can be credited to MedicoExperts for making both the procedures cost-effective and result oriented. These procedures can not only assure weight loss but also have the capability to correct sugar and blood pressure levels. Depending upon the target weight, BMI, patient's own personal preference to the nature of the procedure, other co-morbidities like diabetes and blood pressure, etc. the bariatric surgeon will recommend either gastric balloon or gastric sleeve procedure.
Gastric sleeve and gastric balloon are procedures that help to lose weight and also get rid of weight-related problems like diabetes, hypertension, etc. Gastric sleeve surgery is done laparoscopically where the size of the stomach is significantly reduced. Gastric sleeve can also be done robotically which involves minimal cuts. A gastric balloon is done endoscopically i.e. without any cut. In this procedure, a saline-filled balloon is placed in the stomach for a period of 6 to 12 months.
As undergoing any type of weight loss procedure is expensive and generally not covered by insurance, MedicoExperts offers cost-efficient options in India
where the healthcare facilities are at par with international standards. MedicoExperts has empanelled the most experienced and highly-qualified surgeons who are trained in the finest institutes of the world. Moreover, the cost of choosing a weight loss surgery in India
is one-sixth of what it costs in any other country like the US or UK. The cost of gastric sleeve in India
starts from USD 6000
while the cost of a gastric balloon in India
starts from USD 3500
"Young and unmarried women, and even married women who are yet to complete their families choose gastric balloon. Reason being the procedure involves no cut, can be reversed and does not change the physiology of the body yet helps lose about 22-44 pounds (10-20 kgs). Gastric sleeve surgery is suggested when patients need to lose about 33-88 pounds (15-40 kgs). Both these procedures are highly successful but are recommended to separate pools of patients depending on the amount of weight they need to lose," states Priyanka, Senior Patient Care Manager with MedicoExperts.
