ORBERA® is a durable gastric balloon made out of soft silicone. While in your stomach for six months it encourages your body to adapt to healthier behaviors by taking up enough space in your stomach to help you adapt to healthier portion sizes.
The ORBERA® is placed into the stomach in a simple, non-surgical outpatient procedure. The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the esophagus and into your stomach.
Once the balloon has been filled with saline it is about the size of a grapefruit. The entire procedure takes about 20-30 minutes.
