The procedure is performed via gastroscopy under light sedation, in which the Orbera® balloon is inserted into your stomach via your mouth, and usually takes around 20 minutes. After 6 months, the intra-gastric balloon is removed and your support team will continue to guide you toward making healthy lifestyle choices.
It has been evaluated in over 230 global clinical studies with studies showing an average weight loss of 10-15kg in the 6-month time frame. There has been over 220,000 procedures performed worldwide across 20 years, and with ORBERA®, 70 to 80 percent of weight loss typically occurs during the first three months of treatment, so having a team of experts to help you overcome the challenges of retraining your appetite, adopt new nutritional habits, and establishing a reasonable exercise routine will be essential to meet your long-term weight loss goals.
You can expect to lose 3.1x the weight with Orbera® than you would with diet and exercise alone. Many diet programs are difficult to maintain and you struggle with feeling hungry. With Orbera® you eat smaller meals, because the balloon takes up space in your stomach. You are able to control your eating, learn portion control and make healthy changes in your eating habits.
ORBERA® is indicated for a BMI of 27 and above
