Non-Surgical Orbera Balloon
Weight Loss Option Without Bariatric Surgery
The Newest Weapon for Weight LosS
We are proud to offer a new FDA-approved non-surgical weight loss treatment called the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System. ORBERA™ involves the use of an intragastric balloon placed inside the stomach for a temporary period of time. Once inflated, the balloon takes up space in order to help you feel full much sooner than usual while eating. The balloon works in conjunction with a medically supervised and coordinated diet and exercise plan. This two-part program encourages the development of healthy habits that can be sustained for long-term weight loss success.
How ORBERA Works
There are no incisions required during this quick outpatient procedure. A small, deflated balloon is inserted down the throat and carefully placed in the stomach. The balloon is then filled with a saline solution. Once inflated, it is about the size of a grapefruit. In most cases, this procedure can be completed in approximately 30 minutes.
After six months, the balloon is deflated and removed. This begins the second phase of treatment with the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System. Our team of weight loss experts will help you continue with good diet and exercise habits to keep losing weight safely and effectively. This medically supervised weight loss program is designed to assist you as you adjust to new dietary and lifestyle habits. With our team approach, you will have a comprehensive foundation of support to help win the battle against weight loss.
The ORBERA cost is typically lower than other surgical weight-loss procedures, though it varies by patient. If you’d like to learn more or schedule a consultation, call us today at (501) 574-7171.
WEIGHT LOSS SUPPORT GROUP
For patients who have the Orbera Balloon, the weight loss support doesn’t stop after the procedure. In addition to support you will receive from our bariatric coordinator and dietician, you’ll also be invited to attend our weight loss support groups. These support groups are a way for our patients to continue learning about how to lose weight, and once you’ve lost the weight, how to maintain a healthy weight. At each weight loss support group, our team will present new techniques on how to change your lifestyle and form healthy habits. Weight loss support groups take place in Benton, Little Rock, El Dorado and Russellville. Click here to view support group locations and dates.
