Orbera is a nonsurgical weight loss system designed to achieve meaningful longterm weight loss. The Orbera balloon is a soft expandable balloon that is placed in an outpatient setting. During a short procedure, the patient is comfortably sedated as a highly trained Orbera physician inserts the uninflated balloon through the mouth, using a flexible camera. Once the balloon is placed in the stomach, it is inflated until the approximate size of a grapefruit with sterile water called saline. The balloon remains in the stomach where it takes up space, slows the digestion of food and encourages proper portion control. After six months, it is deflated and removed in a similar manner.
Orbera provides an effective nonsurgical weight loss solution for those that have struggled to lose weight. Orbera is the number one global leading weight loss balloon and is used in over 80 countries. Orbera has been shown to amplify patient's weight loss efforts and lose three times the weight of diet and exercise alone. To learn more about Orbera or to find a specialist near you visit orbera.com.
