ORBERA | WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT | WEIGHT LOSS BALLOON
Orbera is a weight loss treatment that helps individuals feel fuller sooner, so they eat less. The procedure involves a removable gastric balloon. The non-surgical, non-permanent weight loss balloon is an ideal alternative to invasive, irreversible solutions like a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass.

BARIATRIC SURGERY: THE GASTRIC BYPASS OR GASTRIC SLEEVE
Traditional weight loss procedures include the gastric bypass or gastric sleeve. These procedures surgically alter the stomach or intestines to make the stomach smaller. The smaller stomach can only hold a small amount of food. This forces the individual to eat less, hopefully resulting in weight loss.
Gastric bypasses and gastric sleeves are invasive surgeries. They require a surgeon, anesthesia, and lengthy recovery time. Bariatric surgeries are non-reversible. Once the procedure is performed, it cannot be reversed. Unfortunately, this often leads to long-term health issues related to malnutrition. Because bariatric surgery is so invasive and can lead to lifelong health effects, these weight loss surgeries are recommended as a last resort for severely obese individuals.
ORBERA GASTRIC BALLOON
Orbera is an excellent alternative to bariatric surgery. The balloon decreases the size of the stomach to help individuals feel fuller sooner. This allows them to reduce the amount they eat and develop healthy habits to maintain their weight loss.
Orbera does not require surgery. It is an easy, outpatient procedure. There are no scars, no anesthesia, and no downtime. The process takes 30-minutes to complete.
The Orbera balloon is placed in the stomach with an endoscope. A local sedative ensures patient comfort while the balloon is being placed. Once the balloon is positioned in the stomach, it is inflated using saline. Taking up most of the space in your stomach, it takes much less food for you to feel full. This will help with your weight loss journey. 1 As with any weight loss treatment, individual experiences may vary. *
