Orbera can help you lose three times the weight of diet and exercise alone.

It slows your digestion so that you eat smaller portions during meals, and less often.

But the real results happen when you understand it’s not a shortcut, that it’s a tool for learning how to take control.

How the Weight-Loss Balloon Works

  1. The deflated balloon is inserted into your stomach in a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure under IV sedation.
  2. The balloon is filled with a sterile solution to the size of a small grapefruit; the entire procedure takes about 20 – 30 minutes.
  3. The balloon takes up space in your stomach to slow down digestion and help you adapt to healthier portion sizes. Most patients see dramatic results after 1-2 months.
  4. After 6 months, the balloon is removed with a non-surgical procedure.
  5. Optional 12-month coaching program including monthly sessions with registered dietician, over 100 recipe suggestions, and mobile app to monitor progress.

“Before, I would eat until I was stuffed, but now I can tell the difference between being satisfied and being overly full.”


A gastric balloon is a tool for taking control of the way you eat.
