Losing weight may seem as simple as making a few changes to your diet and exercise plan, but it is often a lot harder to pull off. Sticking to a healthy lifestyle can be extremely challenging because it rarely provides instant results. The lack of quick results often sends individuals back to the bad habits that led to their current weight issues. Luckily, there is a medical weight loss system that can help these individuals quickly drop excess weight while also teaching them how to live a healthier lifestyle. This revolutionary weight loss procedure is known as the Orbera non-surgical gastric balloon.
How The Orbera Balloon Works
The Orbera balloon is placed into the patient’s stomach endoscopically. This means that it is lowered down to the stomach using a special medical device called an endoscope. This device is a flexible, hollow tube that is outfitted with a light and a tiny camera. While the patient is under mild sedation, the surgeon lowers the deflated balloon to the target location and then fills it with a saline solution.
The balloon fills up the patient’s stomach so they are not able to eat as much food as normal and they will feel full most of the time. The capacity restrictions imposed by the balloon and the help it offers to suppress the appetite work together to promote weight loss.
Why Should I Consider An Orbera Balloon?
If your BMI (body mass index) is between 30 and 40 and your attempts at losing weight using traditional methods have been unsuccessful, you should take a serious look at the potential of the Orbera weight loss balloon program.
The Orbera balloon, coupled with your commitment to adhering to a healthy diet, daily exercise, and a generally healthy lifestyle, will help you lose weight and keep it off.
Another reason to consider the Orbera gastric balloon is the unprecedented support you will receive during your 12-month program and beyond. You are not on your own to figure things out; you are supported by a team of professionals that will provide guidance on everything you need to be successful in reaching your goals.
Best of all, there is no surgery and no incisions involved, and the in-office procedure takes under 30 minutes. Most patients experience only a short 3-day recovery time as their stomach adjusts to the balloon.
The Orbera balloon does not make any permanent changes to your digestive system and is only in place for six months. During these six months, we offer lifestyle and nutrition coaching to help you maintain your weight after the ORBERA non-surgical balloon is removed.
What To Expect From The Orbera Balloon
- It usually takes about 3 to 5 days for the body to adjust to the ORBERA non-surgical balloon;
- Patients will be eating significantly less food during mealtimes, which typically results in rapid weight loss during the first three months;
- Patients will work with a support team that will help them develop a healthy diet and exercise routine;
- The ORBERA balloon will be removed after exactly six months, with the removal process being extremely similar to the insertion process and taking about 20 minutes to complete.
Most patients will lose between 30 and 50 pounds during the six months they have the ORBERA non-surgical balloon in their stomach. Patients who continue to practice the healthier eating habits and routines established during the first six months of their program will continue to lose weight and be successful in maintaining their weight loss.
