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.

"I'm 71, Dr. Dorner is my third and the most talented plastic surgeon. At my consult, we discussed fat and skin around my neck. He knew immediately how to correct it and explained the process. During my necklift with liposuction, Dr. Dorner took additional steps to ensure better than expected results. He also performed laser skin resurfacing using more than one laser. The results are amazing. My fine lines are almost non-existent. Dr. Dorner's technical and artistic skills put him in a league of his own. -CD"- C.D / Office Visit / Aug 21, 2020

"I wish I could give more than five stars; AMAZING experience! I've struggled to build muscle/bulk in certain areas of my body my whole life and decided it was time to take action. For about 6 months, I researched options and plastic surgeons, mostly based in LA and NY. I luckily stumbled across Dr. Dorner in my search and I'm so glad I found him. The whole staff is very friendly, supportive, smart and very accommodating. Dr. Dorner made recommendations based on the results I was trying to achieve and I have to say, he knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery."- R.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

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.
