How does the Gastric Balloon Procedure work?
Obalon Balloon System
The Obalon Balloon System helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less. During treatment you should receive professional nutrition and exercise support to help you make the lifestyle changes that promote weight loss. The Obalon Balloon System supports you to help change your eating habits and keep the weight off for the long term.
When used with a diet and exercise program, patients have lost twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.
It also helps support long lasting results. Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at 1 year (6 months post-removal), when combined with a moderate diet and exercise program.
The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and doesn’t require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon, and then your physician inflates the balloon.
OBRERA Gastric Balloon
ORBERA™ Intra-Gastric Balloon. Don’t just change your weight. Change your life.
ORBERA™ is a soft, yet durable, weight loss balloon designed to fit comfortably in your stomach. A team of physicians designed it to be a temporary tool and simple non-surgical weight loss solution. Its volume and shape are meant to take up space in the stomach, which encourages portion control and gives you the edge to finally lose weight.
Gastric Balloon is a Non-Surgical Procedure
The Gastric Balloon is a simple, non-surgical outpatient procedure. After you’re given a mild sedative, the physician will insert the deflated balloon through your mouth and into your stomach. It is then filled with a safe saline solution until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The entire procedure usually only takes 20 or 30 minutes and most people go home the same day.
