The ORBERA weight loss system introduces a major advancement in medical weight loss, creating a bridge between weight loss surgery and traditional methods of weight loss. With the ORBERA system, you are able to lose weight easier than through traditional diet and exercise alone, but without obesity medication, and without weight loss surgery.
With ORBERA, average weight loss results are three times higher than through diet and exercise alone.
How ORBERA works
The ORBERA system features an intragastric balloon, which is inserted into the stomach in an out-patient endoscopic procedure that typically lasts as little as 20 minutes. Once in place, the balloon is filled with a saline solution that inflates the balloon to about the size of a grapefruit.
The pressure of the intragastric balloon helps to minimize hunger, reducing the amount of food that you can comfortably eat at one time. This supports smaller portion sizes and reduced snacking, which encourages weight loss.
Benefits of ORBERA
- No incisions
- No painful recovery period
- No post-procedure wound care
- No scarring
ORBERA Intragastric Baloon is FDA approved as a safe and effective weight loss system, with more than 220,000 successful placements worldwide. While using the ORBERA system you will be encouraged to work with your weight loss doctor to develop long-term lifestyle changes to your diet and exercise habits. The medical weight loss program will help you achieve weight loss that will last long term.
After about six months, the ORBERA device is removed through a second endoscopic procedure. Since this is not a type of weight loss surgery, there are no changes made to the digestive tract with ORBERA.
ORBERA is highly recommended for those who are in need of weight loss support, but do not qualify for weight loss surgery. Once the ORBERA device is removed, you will continue working with your weight loss doctor to develop long-term weight management strategies.
