Orbera Gastric Balloon Procedure.

Are you looking for information about the Orbera gastric balloon procedure? Read our expert guide to gastric balloons or contact us in Miami for more information.

What is an Orbera Gastric Balloon Procedure?

It can be difficult to achieve and sustain weight loss, but cosmetic surgery can provide a helping hand. Gastric sleeves have been used for many years to restrict food intake, but as a permanent solution, some patients are reluctant to take the plunge. Gastric bands are another option but are also normally recommended for the long-term.

An Orbera gastric balloon offers an alternative, delivering the benefits of a band without many of the complications. In addition, as an Orbera balloon only lasts between 6-12 months, it’s a far less daunting prospect to consider.

If you’re trying to lose weight and want to know more about the Orbera gastric balloon procedure, here’s the information you need.

What is an Orbera Gastric Balloon?

An Orbera gastric balloon is a special type of balloon which can be left in your stomach for between 6 and 12 months. It’s not a permanent change but can kickstart your weight loss, allowing you to lose as much as one-third of any excess pounds.

You don’t need to have invasive surgery as the Orbera is introduced like an endoscopic camera, so you’ll simply need to swallow while under sedation. Once in place, the balloon is inflated with water which makes you feel fuller and less inclined to eat large amounts.

The balloon will gradually deflate over time, and you won’t need to undergo another procedure for it to be removed. The thin membrane can easily be passed, returning your stomach to its previous state.

The Orbera gastric balloon is a very effective way of limiting how much you eat, without the need for invasive surgery or permanent changes being made to your body.

Are There Any Orbera Gastric Balloon Side-Effects?

As the procedure doesn’t require invasive surgery, it’s considered to be very safe. You may have a sore throat on the following day due to the endoscopic camera, but this will pass within 24 hours.
A balloon in your stomach can take a little while to get used to, and a number of patients report some side-effects in the first few days. This can include heartburn, nausea, and abdominal cramping. Sticking to the diet your doctor recommends will help ease the symptoms; you may also be given medication to make you feel more comfortable.
The overwhelming majority of patients are able to tolerate the side effects and report that they quickly subside. If for any reason this is not the case for you, the balloon can simply be removed.

Why the Orbera Gastric Balloon Gets Results

Once the balloon is in position in your stomach, you will be given strict advice about what you can eat. The Orbera gastric balloon diet is healthy and balanced, but in the early days it’s important to introduce food slowly.

This means that initially you’ll be asked to stick to liquids and clear soup before moving onto jelly, broth, and a liquid diet in the first five days. After this, you’ll gradually progress onto semi-solid and then solid food.

Who performs the Brazilian Butt Lift procedures?

The reason that the gastric balloon is such a success isn’t just because it limits what you can eat. It gives you an opportunity to reprogram your dietary habits, encouraging you to choose healthy food. By the time the balloon is removed, you will naturally be making better choices and won’t be overeating. All of this combined with activity and exercise enables you to sustain your weight loss.

You can combine an Orbera gastric balloon with other measures, such as liposuction in our Miami clinic, if you’re looking for targeted results. However, with up to 14kg of weight loss possible, many people find that a gastric balloon is effective enough on its own.

The staff at Zion Plastic Surgery were extremely caring, helpful, and kind throughout my experience. The surgery center... is clean and aesthetically pleasing. My surgeon, Dr. Pacheco, was thorough, knowledgeable, and extremely thoughtful: she did not pressure me into anything I didn’t want, and made me feel so comfortable.I had doubts about this center given minimal photos on their social platforms and inability to see my surgeon before booking or at any point before surgery, However, when I met her Dr. Pacheco on Surgery day, I instantly trusted her to give me the change I sought. I am happy with My final decision to choose Zion and Dr. Pacheco.Special shoutout to Luly for all the support and kindness shared from booking to surgery day.read more
