Orbera Q&A

What is Orbera?

Orbera is an FDA-approved weight-loss alternative to surgery. It includes an in-office procedure that helps your body adjust to healthy portion sizes, which leads to lasting weight loss by training your body to refrain from overindulging.  

What happens during the Orbera procedure?

The team at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss works hard to make sure you feel at ease through the whole process. A provider from the team places a gastric balloon inside your stomach. They insert the balloon through the mouth and then into the stomach, where it’s filled with a saline solution until it’s about the size of a grapefruit.

The balloon acts as a portion control apparatus by limiting the amount of food that you can ingest. The procedure is done in-office with no scars or surgery.

How does Orbera help with weight loss and keeping the weight off?

The gastric balloon helps train your body to adapt to a healthy amount of food intake by giving the sensation of feeling full while you’re actually eating less. This clever technique helps you with portion control and can make the laborious counting of calories or measuring portions easier.

After six months, the gastric balloon is removed and your body should be adjusted to proper portion control. Due to the long time period of training, you should be ready to start eating without the balloon and know what is right for your body.

What happens during the six months of having the Orbera gastric balloon?

The team at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss supports you throughout your weight-loss journey and helps you with learning proper portion control, making healthier nutritional choices, and finding an effective exercise routine you can maintain. The goal is to provide you with expert weight-loss training and education to help you keep the weight off after your Orbera procedure is complete.

For the first few days after the procedure, you may feel side effects like nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The symptoms typically last only a few days and sometimes up to two weeks.  The team at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss will be with you every step of the way to support you. Your provider can prescribe you medication to help you with the symptoms until your body adjusts to the gastric balloon.

After adjusting to the gastric balloon, you should notice your eating habits adjust to healthy portion sizes and feel a difference in feeling satisfied after eating.
