Balloon Weight Loss for Healthier Living
People who struggle with obesity may be blamed for having no will power, and told that diet and exercise are the only way to lose weight. However, being obese doesn’t mean you are a failure – it means your genetics, family history, and environment are different than those of “thin” people. Unfortunately, of course, obesity puts you at greater risk of health problems, including arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease, so it is still very important to reach a healthy weight. At the same time, you might not be quite heavy enough to qualify for a weight loss surgery. Beverly Hills Physicians is proud to say that we now use the ORBERA system, and have a leading balloon weight loss doctor available to help patients.
When you visit us, our team of weight loss experts will determine whether you qualify for the ORBERA system. If you do, we can set you up for a non-surgical weight loss procedure, which takes less than 10 minutes to perform. The balloon device is filled with saline, and is designed to take up room in your stomach, so you feel full after eating much less food. Unlike other bariatric procedures, the balloon device is not permanent, and is removed after six months
This new balloon weight loss procedure won’t work by itself, of course. At Beverly Hills Physicians, we also make sure you have a team of nutritionists and exercise coaches helping you make the lifestyle changes you need to lose the weight and to keep the weight off once the balloon is removed. Beverly Hills Physicians is here to help.
