ORBERA WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM
HOW IT WORKS
ORBERA® is a durable gastric balloon made out of soft silicone. While it is temporarily in your stomach for six months it encourages your body to adapt to healthier portion sizes. The shape and volume of the stomach balloon takes up enough space in your stomach to help you adapt to healthier portion sizes. The technology and design of the balloon helps patients lose up to 3x the weight of diet and exercise alone.
The gastric balloon is inserted orally through your esophagus and placed directly into your stomach during a quick, non-surgical procedure.
Since the weight loss balloon is inserted through your throat and into your stomach there is no need for any incisions, stitches or scars.
The 30-minute procedure is completed while you are mildly sedated. Most patients go home to start their weight loss journey on the same day.
After the first six months of the weight loss program the stomach balloon is carefully removed and the aftercare program continues.
