Obesity in modern society comes unrecognized to us. It can lead inflamation to accumulate in the body, causing severe diseases such as cancer and cerebrovascular disease, and can cause serious injuries to major lower body joints such as the knee.

Although the numerous media cover the seriousness of obesity, most people have two thoughts: “It’s okay now” and “ I can lose weight later.” But when you’re trying to lose weight, your body will already be bloated beyond imagination.

The basic idea of “I’m fine now” is that no one around you will directly tell you, “You’ve gained a lot of weight, I think you’ll get a serious illness,” which can be demeaning toward your appearance. Instead, you remain completely unaware.

The thought “I can lose weight later” may show one is not aware of the urgency because they are more concerned about how inconvenient in daily work and life in would be to do something about the problem.

In conclusion, regardless of one’s will, we only realize the seriousness of the dark shadow of obesity when we hear shocking stories from others or when we feel that our physical condition is remarkably poor. 

Most will exercise hard and eat a healthy diet to get rid of the fat that has increased exponentially, but eventually most give up because even if they continue to do it with willpower, you won’t see rapid results.

In that case, an effective and immediate alternative we can think of is a procedure called “End-ball.”

The End-ball procedure is a safe diet method that helps control the amount of food eaten and induces weight loss by inserting a durable balloon with 100% sterile air into the stomach to help maintain a feeling of fullness.

It is performed through endoscopy without a surgical operation and corrects the wrong eating habits, which are the root cause of obesity, and helps to lose weight in a short period of time.

โ–  gastric balloon diet (endball treatment)

The gastric balloon diet is a procedure in which an endball balloon is inserted into the stomach through an endoscope for six months without surgical intervention. This procedure helps you lose weight by helping you maintain a constant feeling of fullness and control the amount of food you eat.

โ–  Advantages

1. Effective weight loss

It helps a lot in controlling the amount of food you eat, and you succeed in losing weight by an average of 18% after the procedure. The higher the BMI, the more influential the treatment will be, and the yo-yo phenomenon will not occur through improved eating habits. In particular, if there is an urgent need for dietary control, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, efficient treatment is possible.

2. Safe treatment

It is a safe procedure certified by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, and the risk of complications is shallow. The process is performed in a short time of about 10 minutes through endoscopy (sleep), and there is no need for hospitalization because there is no wound after surgery, and the recovery period is short.
