What is Orbera™?
- A comprehensive two-part program designed to provide effective, motivating results that you can see.
- Starts with a soft balloon placed in your stomach for 6 months to reinforce proper portion control.
- The Orbera™ balloon takes up space in your stomach to help you eat smaller meals.
- Patients will receive coaching from a team of experts, which may include a dietician, psychologist, and exercise physiologist.
- Coaching will continue after the balloon is removed for 6 months. That is a total of 12 months of professional coaching.
The Procedure: Placement and Removal
- Performed under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated Orbera™ balloon is placed into the stomach. The balloon is then filled with saline until it is about the size of a grapefruit.
- The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the same day.
- At 6 months the balloon is then removed in the same way it was placed. After mild sedation, the balloon is first deflated and then removed.
What to expect?
- The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first 3 months of treatment.
