What is ORBERA™?
The Procedure: Placement and removal
ORBERA™ is a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative in which the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it is about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes, and you can go home the very same day. At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way in which it was placed.
What to Expect
Weight loss is rapid with the majority of those who have had ORBERA™ and typically occurs in the first three months of treatment. On average patients lost 3.1 times the weight loss of diet and exercise alone. Individual results may vary. There is no express or implied guarantee of weight loss.
The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results.
