Simple Design

ORBERA™ is a gastric balloon, which is a simple, yet powerful non-surgical weight loss solution. To begin, the deflated balloon is placed in your stomach and then filled with saline until the approximate size of a grapefruit. The presence of the balloon enforces portion control. After having the balloon for 6 months and receiving coaching from experts, ORBERA™ is removed while you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle … and that’s it!

Portion Control

ORBERA™ not only enforces portion control by making you feel full, but to be successful you will also have to make healthy lifestyle choices. For 12 months, a team of experts will help you reach your weight loss goals by retraining your appetite, advising on healthy nutritional choices, controlling portion sizes, and developing an exercise routine. Adopting and maintaining these healthy habits will ensure that you succeed with ORBERA™.

3x the Weight Loss of Diet & Exercise Alone

ORBERA™ is a two-part program that combines the placement of a weight loss balloon and a customized diet and exercise plan to effectively manage weight loss. After six months with this two-part program, people lost an average 3.1 x the weight patients lost with diet and exercise alone. Thousands of people worldwide have safely used ORBERA™ to lose weight and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

Orbera™ Success Story

Charlotte is a busy, social young professional who went for a standard physical and learned she may be pre-diabetic. Over the last few years due to her busy life and medications she had gained significant weight. She started looking for weight loss solutions and after realizing she wouldn’t qualify for gastric bypass, or a gastric band, turned to realself.com and came across Orbera®.

Charlotte liked the idea of Orbera® because it was a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to losing weight. To her, Orbera® was a tool to help her kick-start her weight loss. Throughout the 12 months of the Orbera® Weight Loss Program, Charlotte utilized a nutritionist to teach her what to eat and what not to eat. The nutritionist also helped her stay accountable with her overall activity and diet.

After having the Orbera® balloon, she learned portion control, how to identify psychological hunger and to listen to her body. For Charlotte, seeing the scale go down was incredibly encouraging. It’s now been over a year and Charlotte continues to utilize the healthy eating habits learned from Orbera® and is proud of her 43 lb. weight loss
