How Does The Orbera Balloon Work
The Balloon Itself and the intervention
The Orbera balloon is a weight loss system that uses a gastric balloon to take up space in the abdomen. The balloon is placed in the stomach through the mouth using a non-invasive endoscopic procedure while the patient is under mild sedation. When the balloon is placed in the abdomen, it is filled with saline, after which it expands and take up the desired space in the abdomen.
How the orbera Balloon works
The balloon takes up space in the abdomen to help patients lose weight. During the course, the patient is invited to one of our clinics every 14 days by one of our dieticians to optimize the treatment and ensure weight loss. The balloon is removed after 6 or 12 months depending on the type.
Results With Orbera
Studies show that patients who have used a gastric balloon lost an average of 3 times as much as people who only changed their diet and activity level (source). With a Gastriball treatment, you will also get advice and guidance from one of our experienced dieticians who will help you with your diet and exercise. Together with the dietician, you will put a plan that will complement the Orbera Abdominal Balloon and provide lasting weight loss and a healthy lifestyle
