Weight loss procedures like the Lap Band have helped thousands of people lose weight and overcome comorbid diseases, but until recently, there have been no options for people who have a body mass index that doesn’t meet the definition of severe obesity. If you are one of the many American adults who have a BMI between 30 and 40, you may struggle to keep weight off with just diet and exercise, while also being at risk of developing health problems like diabetes, high cholesterol, and osteoarthritis. The situation is frustrating, but you don’t have to be frustrated anymore. The FDA has approved one of the first non-surgical weight loss options for people just like you, and Beverly Hills Physicians is one of the first clinics in Los Angeles to offer this procedure.
The ORBERA Intragastric Balloon is a fantastic way for people with weight issues to quickly reach a healthy weight. Since it is non-surgical, you will recover quickly, so you can begin your weight loss journey right away. Our expert balloon weight loss doctor will implant a saline-filled “balloon” into your stomach, which takes up room so you feel full after eating less. Combined with diet and exercise changes, you will lose weight rapidly, and get healthy again.
The balloon is removed after six months but, with some effort, the impact of this amazing balloon weight loss technique will stay with you for a lifetime. At Beverly Hills Physicians, we want our clients to love their bodies, which is why we offer weight loss and plastic surgery options, so you feel great about yourself, both outside and inside.
