You are worth it.

See results in only 6 months!

The first six months of the ORBERA® weight loss program is where patients usually see the most drastic results. ORBERA® patients lose weight so rapidly because the stomach balloon safely takes up space in the stomach, promoting portion control. This process helps you to develop these important portion control skills while the aftercare program helps you to revamp your diet. ORBERA® outshines other diet and exercise programs because it gives you the skills and confidence to begin a new healthy lifestyle without the negative aspects of a disappointing diet program.

Non-surgical

The gastric balloon is inserted orally through your esophagus and placed directly into your stomach during    a quick, non-surgical procedure.

20-minute non-invasive procedure

The 20-minute procedure is completed while you are mildly sedated. Most patients go home to start their weight loss journey on the same day.

Not permanent — 6 months

After the first six months of the weight loss program the stomach balloon is carefully removed in about 15-minutes.

No incisions

Since the weight loss balloon is inserted through your throat and into your stomach there is no need for any incisions, stitches or scars.

No surgery. No incisions.

The ORBERA® weight loss system is a two-part program that does not require surgery. The first part of the program is a procedure that inserts a deflated gastric balloon through your mouth and into your stomach. Once in place, it is filled with saline until it is the approximate size of a grapefruit. This procedure calls for no surgery, incisions, stitches or scarring and typically calls for very little recovery time, so you can return to your everyday life as soon as possible!

Tried. Tested. Proven.

ORBERA® is FDA approved and the #1 weight loss balloon in the world. Over the last 20 years ORBERA® weight loss balloons have helped over 277,000 people around the world. The ORBERA® stomach balloon is known for both its safety and effectiveness worldwide.

ORBERA® vs Other Gastric Balloons

Over the past 20 years, ORBERA® has become the #1 weight loss balloon in the world and is the only one recognized by the ASGE for its safety and effectiveness*. No other FDA-approved gastric balloon has shown more weight loss during their US clinical studies.

 

* ORBERA® has met the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’s (ASGE) Preservation and Incorporation of Valuable Endoscopic Innovations (PIVI) threshold standards for the treatment of obesity.

ORBERA® vs Diet and Exercise Alone

It’s been shown that the average person loses 3x more weight with ORBERA®
than with diet and exercise alone. Here’s some of the reasons why:

  • Diets can leave you feeling hungry or dissatisfied. ORBERA®helps by taking up room in the stomach and encouraging portion control.

ORBERA® is a non-surgical weight loss procedure, which means no incisions, stiches, or scars. It takes about 20 minutes; most people go home the same day. And, importantly, the balloon is in place only temporarily, as opposed to permanent surgical alterations.

FAQ

What is the ORBERA® gastric balloon?

ORBERA is the name of a gastric balloon that’s inserted in your stomach, where it helps you lose weight by making you feel full. Most people lose three times more weight in six months than the amount that’s typically lost when they rely on diet and exercise alone.

The ORBERA gastric balloon is made from medical-grade silicone. This means it’s safe and durable, so it can stay in your stomach for six months.

How is the ORBERA gastric balloon placed into your stomach?

The balloon is inserted in a nonsurgical procedure that’s done in the office and only takes about 20 minutes. You’ll be mildly sedated, then a medical instrument called an endoscope is used to place the deflated balloon into your stomach.

The thin endoscope carries the balloon through the mouth and esophagus into the stomach, then the balloon is gently inflated with a saline solution (salt water) until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. After it’s inflated, the endoscope is removed, and you go home the same day.

After six months, you’ll come back to the office and go through the same procedure in reverse. The endoscope is used to deflate the balloon and extract it from your stomach.

How does ORBERA promote weight loss?

The balloon is inserted in a nonsurgical procedure that’s done in the office and only takes about 20 minutes. You’ll be mildly sedated, then a medical instrument called an endoscope is used to place the deflated balloon into your stomach.

The ORBERA balloon takes up space in your stomach, so you’ll feel full after eating a small amount of food. Since the balloon stays inflated, it also helps you feel less hungry throughout the day.

With the balloon in place, you’ll start losing weight while you begin to change lifestyle habits that will help keep the weight off. As one example, portion control is essential, but the balloon gives you a feeling of partial fullness for six months, which means you have time to learn new eating habits while losing weight.
