Orbera Retrains Your Brain
Untreated obesity increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, arthritis, and many other serious health conditions. Recent studies have revealed that being overweight can trigger emotional problems and that obese individuals have much higher rates of anxiety and depression.
Most individuals find it difficult to determine how much food they need to consume as part of a healthy lifestyle and continue to eat even though they have already consumed the recommended number of calories for the day. After overeating for years, these individuals need some help retraining their brains and bodies to be satisfied with healthier portions of the right types of foods.
Gastric balloons continue to become more popular as patients share their success stories and the benefits of their Orbera gastric balloon procedure across social media platforms. The goal of the gastric balloon procedure is to jumpstart weight loss while establishing new behavior patterns that promote a healthier lifestyle.
How Does A Gastric Balloon Work?
A gastric balloon is placed in the stomach through an endoscopic procedure that only requires a mild sedative. The deflated balloon is lowered down the patient’s throat and then inflated to about the size of a grapefruit with saline solution.
Once inside the patient’s stomach, the balloon takes up a significant portion of the stomach’s capacity and limits how much food an individual can eat. The patient loses weight because they will feel full longer and are not able to eat as much. Gastric balloons offer significant results and are incredibly effective when they are combined with dietary changes.
Patients return home the same day as the procedure and most patients are back to their normal routines within a few days.
