As many different weight loss procedures gain popularity, it is important to provide a comprehensive understanding of those procedures. In efforts to bring high quality care to our patients, and provide them with new, cutting edge methods to get healthy, the ORBERA Balloon is a great procedure.

What Is ORBERA Balloon?

To begin, what is the ORBERA Balloon? The ORBERA Balloon is a non-surgical weight loss solution. This specific balloon is non-surgical, non-invasive, non-permanent, and is FDA-approved, as well as proven to be safe and provide effective results. With this balloon in your body, it restricts the amount of food you can eat, while retraining your brain to effectively send queues that signify that you’re full. ORBERA is a better alternative for those who don’t wish to undergo weight loss surgery. This procedure is quick, as it only take about 20 minutes to perform, and is proven to be effective.

What Is The Typical Procedure, Pre-Post-Op?

In terms of the actual procedure, the ORBERA Balloon procedure is pretty straight forward. Being that this procedure is non-surgical, you will be mildly sedated to the point of being comfortable. The doctors will then insert the deflated gastric ballon into your esophagus and then into your stomach. Following that, a syringe will fill the balloon with sterile saline solution to about the size of a grapefruit. You will have the balloon in your stomach for six months, and ensure that you are eating healthy, nutritious foods. As aforementioned, your portion sizes will subsequently be smaller, as you will not be able to eat as much food as you did before.

12 Months Of Follow Up Visits Are Important To Succeed In Weight Loss – Positivity, Accountability Is Important.

During the six months that the ORBERA Balloon is in your stomach, you will drastically change the way you eat and how much you eat. With the balloon in place, and the proper retraining of your brain, you will be able to live a healthier lifestyle and ideally keep the weight off. Throughout your journey, you will be expected to attend follow-up appointments, in efforts to maximize your health journey and succeed in weight loss. As you will find, these appointments are essential in your weight loss journey, and will help you stay positive and accountable. 12 month follow up visits are important, as your progress will be noted, and you will be provided with tips to keep the weight off and live a more healthy, positive lifestyle.
