The ORBERA™ gastric balloon is an innovative treatment option for weight loss, and it should be viewed as a bridge between weight loss programs and surgery. When combined with traditional dieting and exercise, ORBERA™ can help you lose three times as much weight, and it has already been approved by the FDA. The program is effective because it uses an expandable balloon, which must be inserted into your stomach.
An endoscopic procedure is used to place the balloon. After the balloon is in your stomach, it’s inflated using a special solution, and once it has been fully inflated, it will be about the size of a grapefruit. Since the balloon occupies a large space in your stomach, it significantly reduces hunger and helps with weight loss.
What are the Benefits of the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon?
The ORBERA™ balloon serves as an innovative treatment for weight loss, and it combines advanced technology with a simple goal. One of the greatest benefits of using the ORBERA™ balloon is a significant increase in weight loss results.
Since the balloon inflates and fills a large space in your stomach, it tricks your stomach into thinking it’s full, and as a result, you can lose much more weight than you’d lose with dieting and exercise alone.
Another major advantage of the ORBERA™ balloon is the lack of downtime after the procedure. To place the balloon, a simple endoscopic procedure is used, and since the procedure isn’t very invasive, it doesn’t require a lengthy amount of downtime. Some other procedures for weight loss are much more invasive and require significantly more downtime.
Eat Healthier and Turbocharge Weight Loss
When used for weight loss, the ORBERA™ gastric balloon can deliver excellent results. By filling space in your stomach, the balloon makes it easy to consume minimal calories and still feel full afterwards.
If you don’t need as much food to feel full, then you’ll develop better eating habits, and once they’ve been practicing long enough, your new habits will remain long after the ORBERA™ balloon has been removed. This innovative new treatment option can turbocharge your weight loss results because it almost eliminates feelings of hunger.
Additional Benefits of the ORBERA™ Balloon
To place the ORBERA™ balloon inside of your stomach, no surgery is required, and the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. You can avoid the serious risks associated with surgery.
A major benefit of this treatment option is that it doesn’t require anything to be permanently placed in your body. After a set amount of time, the balloon can be removed, and you can enjoy the amazing weight loss results that you’ve obtained from the treatment.
