WHAT IS ORBERA™?
ORBERA™ is a comprehensive two-part program that combines a clinically tested and proven medical device with a personalized plan of action and support team* to effectively manage weight loss.
With ORBERA™, on average patients lose 3.1 times more weight than what they would with diet and exercise alone. The two-part program starts with a soft balloon being placed in your stomach. The ORBERA™ balloon stays in the stomach for six months.
While the balloon is in the stomach it occupies excess space making you feel fuller faster and assist in reinforcing proper portions sizes. At six months the balloon is removed, your support team will continue to guide you towards making healthy lifestyle choices to establish a solid base for long-term success.
WE'RE IN IT TOGETHER
Orbera is a twelve month journey, and getting the most out of this system means having a team devoted to your success.
If Orbera is right for you, our group helps you use it to change your eating behaviors, and sustain that progress long after the balloon is removed.
THE PROCEDURE: PLACEMENT AND REMOVAL
This non-surgical procedure is done in an outpatient surgery setting and typically takes between 20 and 30 minutes. The deflated ORBERA™ balloon is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach using a small camera called an Endoscope. The silicone balloon is then inflated with a fluid called saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit.
At six months the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed, using an endoscope through the mouth into the stomach where the balloon is deflated and then removed.
Orbera can help you lose three times the weight of diet and exercise.
But the real results happen when you understand it’s not a shortcut, that it’s a tool for learning how to take control.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A diet and exercise regimen is recommend after the balloon placement and the weight loss is expected to be rapid with the majority of weight loss occurring in the first three months after balloon is placement. While most of the weight loss occurs in the first few months, Orbera is a 12 month program providing coaching and training so that you learn how to keep the weight off long-term.
On average patients lost 3.1x more weight than diet and exercise alone. The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results.
