Orbera - Gastric Balloon
What is the Orbera Balloon?
Orbera is a soft balloon placed in the stomach that is used as a non-surgical weight loss device. It uses a 2 part program that includes the device as well as a customized plan and support team to help manage your weight loss journey.
The average patient will lose 20-50 pounds using the Orbera balloon and already over 220,000 people have seen results. On average, you’ll lose 3.1 times the weight than from diet and exercise alone.
How Does it Work?
A soft balloon will be placed in your stomach to take up space, slow the rate of digestion, and help you manage proper portion control. You will also receive support from a team of nutrition and exercise professionals. They will develop a customized diet and exercise routine just for you that includes foods and activities that you enjoy, while excluding those that you do not enjoy.
After six months, the balloon is removed and you continue to see long-term success by maintaining the relationship with your support team.
What’s the Procedure Like?
During a short procedure in an outpatient setting, you will be comfortably sedated. Then our physician will insert the deflated balloon through your mouth, down your throat, and into your stomach using a flexible camera. Then, the balloon will be inflated until it is about the size of a grapefruit. The camera is removed and you are ready to go home!
The First Six Months
You will have the balloon in your stomach for six months. During this time you will work with a team of specialists to develop a healthy diet and exercise routine. This helps to maximize the effects of the balloon and ensure that it works for you. You will notice that you get full more easily and that your stamina will increase through regular exercise.
Your Changed Lifestyle
After six months, the balloon will be deflated and removed similarly to how it was placed. Your team will continue to work with you to maintain your new healthy weight by managing your appetite, building in nutritious habits, and continuing your exercise program.
This is the gastric balloon Atlanta residents are raving about. Most patients lose between 20 and 50 pounds using the Orbera gastric balloon. They also develop healthy eating habits to maintain their weight loss and a regular routine of enjoyable exercise.
