Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Dorner proudly offers men and women in the Dublin and Columbus, OH areas a unique and effective way to lose weight. With the Orbera gastric balloon, helps individuals feel fuller faster when eating. As a new method for assisted weight loss, Orbera is an expandable silicon device that is placed in the stomach temporarily. It is then filled with a safe solution, to initiate the feeling of fullness. Several studies on the Orbera balloon have shown that patients typically lose around three times the amount of weight than with diet and exercise alone. Prior to recommending Orbera, Dr. Dorner will fully assess your current lifestyle and your weight loss goals, as well as your overall health, to determine if it is the right procedure for you. Contact Dorner Plastic Surgery to learn more and to schedule your consultation with skilled surgeon Dr. Dorner.
Ideal candidates for the Orbera gastric balloon must understand the principles of a healthy diet and exercise regimen prior to undergoing a procedure. Typically, individuals who receive Orbera are looking to lose weight but are struggling to do so through the traditional routes. They may also desire a less invasive procedure compared to other surgical options for promoting weight loss. During a thorough consultation, Dr. Dorner and his team will talk with you about your anticipated results and identify whether you would be a good candidate for Orbera.
For the Orbera procedure, the balloon will be inserted through the mouth and no incisions are required. Once the balloon is in the proper position in the stomach, it will be filled with the solution of saline until it resembles the size of a grapefruit. The balloon will be able to move freely around the stomach, allowing less room in the stomach so that the patient can feel fuller while eating smaller portions.

"This is truly the best place in town for botox. Don’t waste your money anywhere else. I just came here to have a droopy eye created by another place (botox party) corrected and it instantly looks so much better. I’ve relied on botox and dysport for years for a youthful appearance and no place I have ever been can compare with Angie’s expertise. Also the office staff and reception are so nice and welcoming and the office is in a such beautiful setting."- G.C. / Facebook / Jun 18, 2019

"He truly cares about his patients. I called him at 5 am on a Saturday morning following my procedure, I had a unrelated complication and needed different medication. He was great even that early and helped me take care of it as soon the the pharmacy opened."- B.L. / Facebook / Dec 25, 2018
"This office has changed the way I think about skin health! The entire staff works a team and I've ONLY had positive experiences there. I've learned SO MUCH about skin health from Christine. She is professional, gentle, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable. SHE IS THE BEST. As someone with extremely acne-prone skin, I needed a long-term PLAN to improve and maintain skin health. After 1 year, I feel better about my skin in my 30's than I EVER did in my 20's. I still have a long way to go, but I'm on track and it's 100% due to the experts in this office. Everyone - from the front desk to the Doctor (Lisa, Ashley, Melissa, Dorner, Angie, Christine, Polly and more!) has something to offer and if you are confused and struggling with skin like I was, CALL THEM."- J.S. / Facebook / Nov 27, 2018
What to Expect
Following the insertion of the Orbera balloon, you may experience some nausea and/or vomiting. However, this will begin to subside as your body adjusts to the device. The balloon will remain in the stomach for six months before it is removed. Typically, most patients lose the majority of their weight within the first few months following their procedure. It is also important that they stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle after the balloon is removed in order to maintain their results.
