Benefits of ORBERA® Gastric Balloon
The ORBERA® Gastric Balloon offers several benefits that can help you achieve your weight loss goals:
Non-Surgical and Minimally Invasive
ORBERA® Gastric Balloon is a non-surgical procedure that involves placing a soft silicone balloon in your stomach through an endoscopic procedure. This minimally invasive approach eliminates the need for incisions and provides a quicker recovery time compared to surgical weight loss procedures.
Effective Weight Loss
The ORBERA® Gastric Balloon works by occupying space in your stomach, creating a feeling of fullness and reducing hunger. With the balloon in place, you will consume smaller portions and experience reduced calorie intake. On average, patients lose three times more weight with the ORBERA® Gastric Balloon than with diet and exercise alone.
The ORBERA® Gastric Balloon is a temporary weight loss solution, typically remaining in your stomach for about six months. During this period, it serves as a tool to help you develop healthier eating habits and kick-start your weight loss journey. After six months, the balloon is removed, and you continue your weight loss progress with the knowledge and habits you’ve acquired.
What To Expect With the ORBERA® Gastric Balloon
Understanding what to expect with the ORBERA® Gastric Balloon can help you prepare for the procedure and maximize your weight loss results. Here’s an overview:
Placement of the Balloon
The ORBERA® Gastric Balloon is placed in your stomach during a brief endoscopic procedure under mild sedation. A deflated balloon is inserted through your mouth and esophagus and filled with a sterile saline solution once inside your stomach. The entire procedure usually takes about 20-30 minutes.
Lifestyle and Dietary Changes
Alongside the balloon placement, our medical team will provide you with a comprehensive program to support your weight loss journey. This program includes nutritional counseling and guidance to help you develop healthier eating habits. Regular exercise and lifestyle modifications will also be encouraged to optimize your results.
