Diets. Intermittent fasting. Your third gym membership.
Are you tired of trying every single thing under the sun to get your weight under control, with very little to show for?
There is a different approach, and it’s called Orbera. Learn all about it and hear from patients who have had incredible success with it.
How Do You Lose Weight With a Gastric Balloon?
The Orbera gastric balloon teaches you portion control over a 6-month period so that when you are done with the treatment, you are able to maintain your weight loss.
It’s not exactly magic, but it is a pretty revolutionary approach: In a 30-minute non-surgical procedure, a deflated balloon is inserted into your stomach and filled with a saline solution. By taking up space in your stomach, the balloon suppresses your feelings of hunger so that you quite naturally eat smaller and more infrequent portions.
In addition to the balloon placement, you can choose an optional 12-month coaching program including monthly sessions with a registered dietician, a large assortment of recipe suggestions, and a mobile app you can track your progress on.
After 6-months the balloon is removed in another 30-minute procedure and you’re done.
How Much Weight Can You Expect to Lose With Orbera?
On average, patients expect to lose 3x as much with Orbera than with diet and exercise alone. But what’s more powerful than mere numbers is listening to real patient stories, like those of Amanda and Shawn below.

Amanda, even though she is a nurse, says that she “had to relearn everything” by retraining herself how she thought about food. She was able to lose 51 lbs with Orbera.
Shawn said what helped him lose 126 lbs with Orbera was that he didn’t just have to procedure and sat back. Instead, he took up running and biking and began eating healthier. This was made so much easier by the reduction in appetite. He is thrilled that Orbera helped him live that life that he wanted.

I Have More Questions. What’s The Next Step?
There are several ways to move forward if you are interested in a gastric balloon treatment.
Are Gastric Balloons safe? What happens if the Orbera balloon ruptures in the stomach?
Our Orbera FAQ section answers a lot of questions such as the above. If you’re unsure whether you feel comfortable with the procedure, it’s a good place to start.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, we suggest you start by calculating your BMI. A BMI between 30 and 40 is ideal for the procedure.
By far the best way to move forward and have all your questions answered is to schedule a personal consultation with the surgeon performing the procedure. Our Nashville practice currently offers consultations at 50% off until 11/15/2020, so this would be a great time to take this step! You can easily schedule your consultation online right now.
Please also note that we offer virtual consultations as well as travel packages for out of town patients. If Orbera isn’t offered in your area, a trip to Music City might be what you need!
