The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the mouth, eliminating the need for incisions or stitches that leave scars behind. After the balloon is inserted through the esophagus and properly into the stomach it’s filled with a safe saline solution. When the balloon is filled completely it is about the size of a grapefruit and moves freely around the stomach.

Why Does It Work?

ORBERA® is a six-month weight loss and healthy lifestyle program. A gastric balloon is placed in your stomach to help with portion control. This will help you learn healthy portion control methods while your body adapts to your new lifestyle.

For the entire duration of the six-month program you will be encouraged through the help from your support team to follow a diet and exercise plan. This not only helps in weight loss during the six-month program, but also teaches you how to maintain a healthy lifestyle long-term through recommended exercises, healthy foods and portion sizes.
