  • As part of the program, patients receive coaching from our team of experts, including dietitians and psychologist
  • The balloon is removed at 6 months. Coaching continues for six months after the balloon is removed, a for a total of 12 months of support


The Procedure: Placement and Removal

Intragastric Balloon - True Balloon Weight Loss Procedure

  • Placement is a non-surgical weight loss procedures done under a mild sedative: the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach
  • The balloon is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The weight loss procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the very same day
  • At six months, the balloon is deflated and removed in the same way it was placed: through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative


What to Expect With ORBERA™

  • The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first three months of treatment
  • The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results

Dawn's gastric bypass surgery story at MyNewSelf Bariatrics in St. Louis, MO.

Dawn let us know that the last time I went to my cardiologist, he did tell me that if I did not make any changes, I would not be here much longer. I’ve lost 146 pounds since my surgery…and I’m still losing.
