How it Works
FAQs About Orbera Gastric Balloon
Does Orbera have any known side effects or risks?
While Orbera is considered a safe and effective weight loss procedure and the risk of complications is low, they include intolerance of a foreign object in the stomach, bowel blockage, insufficient weight loss, discomfort in the stomach, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, pancreatitis, back pain, acid reflux, ulcers, adverse effects on food digestion, infection, and balloon deflation.
What happens if the Orbera balloon pops?
Balloon ruptures rarely happen; however, if it does happen, Orbera is filled with a harmless saline solution. The primary complication associated with a ruptured balloon is that it will no longer work as a weight loss aid.
Will I regain the weight after the Orbera balloon is removed?
You can regain weight if you do not incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into your routine. Adopting an exercise routine and healthy eating habits is critical to long-term weight loss.
How much does Orbera cost?
The cost of a gastric balloon can vary depending on several factors. We’re proud to offer the most cost effective pricing in the area and telehealth consultations for patients who live far away. The best way to determine your exact costs is to schedule a consultation with one of our weight loss balloon specialists.
