The ORBERA intragastric balloon is designed for those who are seeking to improve their health and well-being through weight loss. Through a non-surgical system, ORBERA helps patients achieve a healthier life in conjunction with lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. A physician places an expandable, soft silicone balloon in the stomach, where it is then inflated using sterile saline water. Since it occupies a large portion of the stomach, ORBERA allows patients with obesity to feel full more quickly during meals, creating a fullness and sense of satisfaction that supports portion control and weight loss.
Safe and Effective Treatment for Weight Loss
Many people who are overweight lack success with dieting, as they constantly feel hungry. Additionally, they find that exercise is uncomfortable so it is difficult to remain on a consistent plan. In addition to creating a sense of fullness that leads to lower food intake, the weight loss that is typical with ORBERA leads to more comfort with physical activity. It is generally available to adults with a body mass index (BMI) or 30 to 40 who are willing to take part in a medically supervised program.
For patients who are seeking a reversible, non-surgical option, ORBERA is a safe and effective weight loss solution. It can be performed in 20-30 minutes and does not involve incisions or scars. The full weight loss program involves placement of the balloon for six months, and nutritional and behavioral coaching for an additional six months after the balloon is non-surgically removed. While results vary based on how patients modify their lifestyles, typical weight loss in study participants was 3x the amount of those who used diet and exercise alone after six months. * individual results may vary.
