How to prepare 

The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first three months of treatment. On average patients lost 3.1 times the weight loss of diet and exercise alone. The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results.

Results 

After six months with the ORBERA™ two-part program, people lost an average 3.1x the weight patients lost with diet & exercise alone. Proven to keep the weight off even after the
balloon is removed. A more than 20 year history of helping thousands of people lose weight.
More than 220,000 ORBERA™ balloons have been distributed worldwide in over 80 countries. With the FDA approval of ORBERA™, patients now have a safe and effective treatment option.

What to expect

Non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the very same day.

At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed. Through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed.
