It helps you control portion size and provides an expert support team that helps coach you towards healthy habits to meet your weight loss goals.
Your support team may include:
ORBERA™ Specialist a licensed doctor of medicine specializing in the field of weight loss.

ORBERA™ has been tested and proven to be effective. It can help you break through weight loss barriers and a team of experts will help coach you towards keeping the weight off in the long run. Here’s what you can expect:
Preparing for ORBERA™ (Before procedure)
Once you meet with your Specialist to discuss weight loss goals, a comprehensive program will be developed for you, which can include one-on-one coaching and expert guidance on dietary nutrition and fitness. It won’t be like anything you’ve tried before, because it includes ORBERA™.
The next step is placement of the ORBERA™ balloon in your stomach to help you exercise portion control and eat smaller meals.
Living with ORBERA™ (First 6 months after procedure)
Most weight is lost in the first three months, but because the gastric balloon stays in for six months, you will learn the right amount of food to eat to maintain your new weight.
In the first few days after placement, you may experience nausea or vomiting. In some patients it may last up to one to two weeks. Your Specialist will work with you to prescribe medication that will proactively manage these symptoms and help you adjust to the balloon.
While the ORBERA™ balloon stays in for six months, you’ll lose the majority of the extra weight you’ve struggled to shed in the first few months. The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results.
Success after ORBERA™ (After balloon removal)
Get ready for feelings of joy and accomplishment in the work you’ve done and the results you’ve achieved. The information, tools, and support gained along your journey will allow you to stick to healthy lifestyle habits and maintain your weight loss long term.
After six months with the ORBERA™ two-part program, people lost an average 3.1x the weight patients lost with diet & exercise alone.

Important ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon System Safety Information:
The ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon System is a weight loss aid for adults suffering from obesity, with a body mass index (BMI) ≥30 and ≤40 kg/m2, who have tried other weight loss programs, such as following supervised diet, exercise, and behavior modification programs, but who were unable to lose weight and keep it off.
To receive ORBERA™ you must be willing to also follow a 12-month program, beginning with the placement of ORBERA™ and continuing for 6 months after, that includes a healthy diet and exercise plan. If the diet and exercise program is not followed, you will not experience significant weight loss results; in fact, you may not experience any weight loss.
Losing weight and keeping it off is not easy, so you will be supervised throughout this program by a team of physicians, physiologists, and nutritionists. This team will help you make and maintain major changes in your eating and exercise habits.
ORBERA™ is placed for no more than six months. Any time that the balloon is in the stomach for longer than six months puts you at risk for complications, such as bowel obstruction, which can be fatal. Some patients are ineligible to receive ORBERA™. Your doctor will ask you about your medical history and will also perform a physical examination to determine your eligibility for the device. Additionally, at the time of placement, the doctor may identify internal factors, such as stomach irritation or ulcers, which may prevent you from receiving ORBERA™.
You must not receive ORBERA™ if you are pregnant, a woman planning to become pregnant within six months’ time, or breast-feeding.
Complications that may result from the use of ORBERA™ include the risks associated with any endoscopic procedure and those associated with the medications and methods used in this procedure, as well as your ability to tolerate a foreign object placed in your stomach. Possible complications include: partial or complete blockage of the bowel by the balloon, insufficient or no weight loss, adverse health consequences resulting from weight loss, stomach discomfort, continuing nausea and vomiting, abdominal or back pain, acid reflux, influence on digestion of food, blockage of food entering the stomach, bacterial growth in the fluid filling the balloon which can lead to infection, injury to the lining of the digestive tract, stomach or esophagus, and balloon deflation.
