Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Dorner proudly offers men and women a unique and effective way to lose weight.

As a new method for assisted weight loss, Orbera is an expandable silicon device that is placed in the stomach temporarily.

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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

How Orbera Gastric Balloon Works

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.

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.
