ORBERA® is a durable gastric balloon made out of silicone. While it is temporarily in your stomach for six months it encourages your body to adapt to healthier portion sizes. The shape and volume of the stomach balloon takes up enough space in your stomach to help you adapt to healthier portion sizes. The technology and design of the balloon helps patients lose up to 3x the weight of diet and exercise alone.
Once the stomach balloon has been in place for six months the balloon is removed. The simple and non-surgical procedure is very similar to
the placement process. Once the ORBERA® gastric balloon has been removed it is very important to continue working closely with your support
team and coaches to follow the personal diet and exercise plan given to you. This will help to keep you in a positive and healthy mindset
while achieving your weight loss goals.
When your yearlong program is over, maintaining the healthy lifestyle choices you have established will help you continue to lose weight and keep it off.
