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.
Orbera Gastric Balloon Reviews
"Two years ago I was watching an episode of "My 600 Pound Life" and they talked about a "gastric balloon". I was immediately intrigued but didn't take it much further than a Google search. Last year I was in one of my best friends wedding. I hated how I looked in almost every photo. I couldn't believe I had let my weight get so out of control in the last couple of years. And nothing I did or tried seemed to reel me back in. I felt like I needed a full mind and body reset button. I looked into a gastric sleeve. But I wasn't "fat enough" to qualify for insurance to cover it, and out of pocket was just wayyyyy too expensive. Enter: Orbera I saw an as on Facebook for a plastic surgeons office in Dublin that was offering that gastric balloon I thought about a few years ago. I decided 2020 was going to be my year! I had my insertion on March 17th - right when the world was falling apart. I kept thinking... is this really the right time to be doing this??? But I emerged from quarantine 28 pounds lighter and it was all good :) As of today I am down a total of 42 pounds. It wasn't a magic tool by any means... I counted points and calories, I changed the way I plate my meals, and pushed play on some pretty intense workouts. Tomorrow morning Orbera and I will part ways, but I'm nervous and excited to start on my next journey of maintaining and using all the tools I've learned. If you're in Ohio and interested in the Orbera program too, I got it through Dorner Plastic Surgery in Dublin."- L.S. / Office Visit / Oct 05, 2020
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.
