What is Orbera™ Gastric Balloon?
The Orbera™ program is 12 months in length, beginning with the gastric balloon insertion process. This non-invasive procedure requires about 20-30 minutes to complete, and many patients go home the same day. This procedure differs from a surgical operation because it doesn’t leave any scars or incisions, and it removes the balloon after six months since it is temporary.
How Does It Work?
After administering a mild sedative, your doctor will insert a deflated balloon through your mouth into the stomach. The gastric balloon is then filled with a saline solution, reducing its size to that of a grapefruit. This inflatable device remains in your stomach for six months as part of the comprehensive weight loss program, which includes personalized diet and exercise tips.
After six months, the healthcare provider safely removes the balloon and implements a specialized diet and exercise plan. This strategic approach helps to sustain weight loss and enhance your overall health and fitness levels.
Orbera™ Gastric Balloon has become the #1 weight loss balloon in the world over the past 20 years and the ASGE recognizes it as the only one for its safety and effectiveness. Additionally, ask your doctor if the Orbera™ weight loss balloon is right for you.
