Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedures

Many individuals suffer from obesity and weight-related health issues like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, issues related to the joints in the knees or hips, etc. Often, these individuals have tried and failed to lose weight with many different diets and exercise programs. They understand that they need to make some lifestyle changes to become healthier, but they just don’t know where to begin and need something to help them get started.

They may begin to research weight loss surgery but find the thought of surgery and extended recovery times so daunting, that they dismiss the idea. There are also those individuals for whom surgical recovery times are not even feasible.

For instance, a single mother (a one-income household) with a small support system and a full-time job. Navigating through a four to six-week surgical recovery time is a challenge. If you are one of the individuals who cannot consider surgery for one reason or another, I have some good news for you! There are non-surgical options that will help get you started on your weight loss journey.

Let me explain 2 non-surgical weight loss procedures that are available right now at the IBI Healthcare Institute. These procedures are called the Orbera Balloon and Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG). They require no incisions or hospital stays, and all offer speedy recovery times compared to surgery. I should also mention that we often offer special pricing for non-surgical weight loss options to make them affordable and available to everyone who is a candidate.

The Orbera Balloon System

What is Orbera Balloon?

Orbera® Balloon is a non-surgical weight-loss procedure that uses a soft silicone balloon to occupy space in the stomach only allowing individuals to eat a small amount of food at a time. We provide patients with a high level of support, including diet and exercise plans and other professional support if necessary.

How Does Orbera Balloon Work for Weight Loss?

During the 20-30-minute procedure, the medical team places the thin, deflated Orbera balloon into the stomach of the patient using an endoscope while the patient is under a mild sedative. Then, they fill the balloon with saline until it reaches the size of a grapefruit.

The balloon takes up space in the stomach, which helps the patient feel “full” and not get hungry as often. It also limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. There is no hospital stay required and only about a 3-day recovery period.

How Much Weight Can I Lose Using the Orbera Balloon System?

Utilizing the gastric balloon properly can help alleviate some of the most difficult aspects of weight loss hunger and portion control. Furthermore, the foods you consume and the physical activity you incorporate into your daily life. It will be an essential determinants of how much weight you will lose.

Stay on track with weight loss and prevent regaining the weight by continuing to eat healthy and exercising regularly for at least 6 months after the balloon is removed. Moreover, transitioning to a healthier lifestyle can ensure the positive difference remains longterm. Patient testimonials have reported weight loss results of 33-92 pounds in 6 months.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)

What is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)?

Transitioning seamlessly, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty utilizes an endoscope to access the stomach through the throat and manipulate the size of the stomach into a bananashaped pouch with 7 to 12 sutures. Indeed, this nonsurgical procedure offers individuals with a BMI of over 30 an effective weight loss solution. Furthermore, studies have shown that it produces successful results with major health improvements.

The smaller stomach size helps patients with portion control and causes them to feel full longer. The procedure takes 30 – 45 minutes and does not require a hospital stay.

ESG reduces the stomach size by about 70%. The result is very similar to what a surgical sleeve gastrectomy does, only without making any incisions.

How Does ESG Work for Weight Loss?

During ESG, the surgeon makes the stomach smaller so it controls the amount someone can eat during one sitting. The smaller stomach size also extends the feeling of “being full” because it takes longer to digest food. After the procedure, patients follow a specific diet plan that helps their stomachs adjust to their new size.

Patients typically lose 1013% of their total body weight within the initial three months, inspiring them to persist with their diet and exercise regimen. Subsequently, they generally recover within a week and can quickly resume their normal routine. Additionally, they can incorporate exercise/physical activity sooner than after a weight loss surgery.

How Much Weight Can I Lose with Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedures?

This is a common question that does not have a “one size fits all” answer. By utilizing weight loss surgeries and nonsurgical weight loss procedures, individuals can gain the chance to shed enough weight to bring their BMI into the healthy range. Moreover, these tools equip them with the tools to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle. Furthermore, they promote the formation of new, beneficial behavior patterns. Ultimately, with the correct utilization, these procedures can be a powerful tool for realizing success in weight loss.

By modifying their eating habits, getting regular exercise, and using all available support resources, patients can successfully achieve their weight loss goals. Weight loss procedures help reduce the number of calories a person can eat at one time, as well as alleviate hunger pains. Moreover, how each patient chooses to utilize this tool is entirely up to them. Furthermore, embracing this lifestyle change will make their journey to success much easier.
