Experience Weight-Loss Without Surgery With Orbera® Balloon System

Being overweight can put a toll on your body. You know that, but you might not realize how much your weight can negatively impact your health. The risks of being obese, or overweight, are high and can lead to these serious conditions:

Knowing these facts might not make it easier for you to shed those extra pounds. After all, to make serious changes, most people need motivation. And now, thanks to a new and innovative procedure, you'll finally have that motivation. 

Orbera® makes losing dramatic amounts of weight in a short period of time possible, and it’s all without invasive surgery. Dr. Eric Ibegbu at Atlantic Medical Group offers this nonsurgical weight-loss treatment to his patients and he's seen great and long-lasting results. Do you want to lose weight and keep it off? Orbera® might be the answer.

How can Orbera® benefit you?

Orbera® is an FDA-approved balloon weight loss system. It helps you learn portion control and healthy eating habits while not requiring invasive surgery. With this system, patients can lose up to three times the amount of weight they would lose with diet and exercise alone.

This outpatient procedure only takes about 20 minutes. To start, we'll mildly sedate you to ensure you're comfortable. Dr. Ibegbu will then insert a deflated gastric balloon through your esophagus, into your stomach. Then, he'll use a syringe to fill the balloon with sterile saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit.

For the next six months, the balloon remains in your stomach. The space it takes up reduces the amount of food you can eat, which trains your brain to know when your stomach is full, so you won't overeat.

The goal of this six-month stretch is to change your eating habits and nutrition with the support of our team at Atlantic Medical Group. Your biggest weight loss usually occurs during this time period, which could be anywhere between 20 to 50 pounds or more.

What’s next?

Once you've established your new habits during these six months, Dr. Ibegbu will then remove the balloon in a procedure like the placement process. For the next six months, you’ll continue to work with us to follow your personalized diet and exercise program. The key is to avoid returning to your old habits. Don’t worry, we’ll help you stay on track!

Do you need to lose weight to live a healthier life? Well, now you can, without the stress of having to follow a strict plan. Orbera® is a painless, non-invasive, and non-surgical method that has been proven to get results. Contact our team at Atlantic Medical Group today to set up your initial consultation. We can’t wait to help change your life!
