- Non invasive
- No incisions
Orbera® is a durable gastric balloon made out of soft silicon that is designed to help with portion control and contribute towards your weight loss goals. The balloon will remain in the stomach for up to six months where, during that span of time, your body will adapt to healthier portion sizes, resulting in weight loss.*
The procedure typically takes under an hour and begins with the patient being mildly sedated before undergoing the insertion of the uninflated balloon. Once sedated, a flexible camera is used to guide the balloon into the stomach where it will rest for six months. When in the stomach, the balloon will be filled with sterile saline solution and will reach the size of a grapefruit. With the balloon occupying a good amount of room in the stomach, you’ll feel fuller while eating.*
