Expert Balloon Weight Loss Doctors in LA
If you struggle with your weight, and diet and exercise changes have not been enough to help you maintain a healthy size, you may wish that you qualified for minimally-invasive bariatric procedures like a Lap Band or a sleeve gastrectomy. However, weight loss surgery is only for people categorized as severely obese. However, if you are considered obese, with a BMI of between 30 and 40, you may worry about your long-term health, and the best way to avoid chronic illnesses like diabetes, joint pain, or sleep apnea. Fortunately, the FDA has finally approved a great new option for non-surgical weight loss, called the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon. This device is designed to help people lose weight and keep it off – and Beverly Hills Physicians is one of the first Los Angeles clinics to offer this effective procedure.
The ORBERA balloon weight lossdevice has helped people who are overweight, but not severely obese, double the amount of weight they have lost, compared to diet and exercise alone. This procedure with Beverly Hills Physicians involves inserting a saline-filled “balloon” nonsurgically into the stomach procedure. You can leave our office the same day, and begin your weight loss journey immediately.
Over the next six months, the balloon will help you feel full after eating much smaller meals. When combined with changes to your diet and exercise routine, balloon weight loss helps you reach a healthy goal weight, and overcome chronic, weight-related illnesses.
