The Leading Balloon Weight Loss Doctor in LA
Over the years, incredible improvements to weight loss surgery and bariatric procedures have helped thousands of people with a body mass index sufficient to be considered severely obese, and keep it off. However, people who have a BMI between 30 and 40 have had few options to quickly lose weight, and avoid comorbid diseases like high cholesterol, diabetes, heart and lung problems, and arthritis. Fortunately, the FDA recently approved a new weight loss procedure using the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon, and Beverly Hills Physicians has Los Angeles’s leading balloon weight loss doctorready to help you.
The ORBERA balloon is a non-surgical weight loss method that is an alternative to minimally-invasive bariatric techniques like the Lap Band for less obese patients. A saline-filled “balloon” is inserted into the stomach, which, much like a Lap Band device, reduces the available space in the stomach to help you feel full after eating less food. Patients who received the ORBERA device lost around 10 percent of their body weight, on average, when the device was combined with diet and exercise changes. While you will only have your balloon implanted for six months, your rapid weight loss will help you continue getting healthy. You reach your goal weight more easily and enjoy all the benefits that go with that.
Beverly Hills Physicians was one of the first health practices in Los Angeles to offer this new balloon weight loss technique. Our expert specialists have seen how effective this device is for many people, so Beverly Hills Physicians is proud to offer this procedure as one of our great weight loss options. We want you to love your body, so contact Beverly Hills Physicians today.
