ORBERA Balloon System in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills

What is the ORBERA Balloon System?

For overweight and obese adults who have not been able to lose weight with diet and exercise, a gastric balloon is a great nonsurgical option. Soma Weight Loss uses the ORBERA gastric balloon, an innovative product that helps control hunger and aids in weight loss and maintenance.

Soma Weight Loss is one of the few facilities in the Los Angeles area performing this procedure. Also known as an intragastric balloon, the device is safe and effective, and patients have been enjoying success with it for more than 20 years.

How does the ORBERA gastric balloon procedure work?

The ORBERA gastric balloon procedure is quick and simple, taking only around 30 minutes. Patients can return home the same day. 

Here’s how it works:

  • An inflatable silicone balloon is inserted into the patient’s stomach via a gastroscope, which goes in through the patient’s mouth 
  • The ORBERA balloon is then filled with saline
  • Sedatives are used to minimize discomfort during the short procedure

The patient’s stomach capacity is decreased, increasing the patient’s satiety and ability to execute portion control.

The balloon stays in place for six months, at which point it is removed the same way it was inserted.

After the ORBERA balloon procedure

The gastric balloon is effective in helping patients integrate healthy eating and lifestyle changes. Because the gastric balloon is a temporary device, it should be viewed as a short-term aid.

To ensure the effectiveness of the gastric balloon, the patient enrolls in a coaching program after the procedure to adopt long-lasting healthy nutrition and fitness practices.  It’s crucial that patients have open and frequent communication with their support coaches.

The average person who undergoes a gastric balloon procedure loses 3.1 times as much weight over a six-month period as those who use diet and exercise alone, research shows. A gastric balloon can be a wonderful aid in improving your health and well-being.
