How Orbera Works

Orbera is a non-surgical procedure that can help lose 20-50 pounds in just 6 months. A deflated balloon is inserted into the stomach through the esophagus, then filled to the size of a grapefruit. The entire process usually takes about 20 minutes and most people go home in hours. The balloon stays in place for 6 months, then deflated and removed back through the esophagus. The main objective of the Orbera weight loss balloon is to jump start your new, healthy lifestyle with quicker results.
