- What is ORBERA™?
ORBERA™ is an FDA-approved, non-surgical weight loss method that can help patients shed excess weight while allowing them to gradually change their lifestyle habits to promote health and wellness. On average, the ORBERA™ gastric balloon for weight loss allows patients to lose 3.1 times the weight they would through diet and exercise practices alone. This procedure is quickly gaining popularity because of the simple, easy, and effective way it helps patients both lose and keep off weight. We perform this non-surgical procedure at our state of the art bariatric center of excellence
- How does the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon help Patients lose Weight?
During this non-surgical treatment, a deflated intragastric balloon is inserted into the patient’s stomach through the esophagus. Once inside the stomach, a saline solution is used to inflate the balloon. This entire process typically takes between 10-20 minutes to complete. Once this procedure is performed, the gastric balloon is left inside the stomach for six months, and during this time patients can lose between 20 and 60 pounds. The ORBERA™ gastric balloon takes up enough space to allow patients to feel fuller more quickly and encourage the consumption of healthier portion sizes. This dramatic decrease in the amount of food each patient takes in allows them to quickly lose weight, most significantly within the first three months of receiving the gastric balloon. Over the remaining three months, patients have enough time to make lasting changes to their diet and exercise habits that help them maintain a healthy, steady weight once the balloon has been removed. This transition is made easier through individualized coaching and guidance provided by our practice’s medical weight loss experts.
At Surgical Associates of South Florida, our goal is to help patients both lose weight and keep it off. Dr. Keshavarzi has developed a fully comprehensive plan that includes everything from psychological to nutritional support, with additional appetite control and hormonal optimization therapies.
