Orbera365 Gastric Balloon Programme

Conveniently located to serve London, Greater London, Birmingham, and Manchester.

What Is theOrbera365 Gastric Balloon?

The Orbera365 gastric balloon is a soft silicone balloon placed in the stomach via endoscopy. This process is completely non-surgical and can be reversed if desired.

Placement of the Orbera365 balloon reduces space in the stomach, creating a feeling of fullness that helps patients consume smaller portion sizes. This will be balanced with personalised diet and lifestyle changes to support the patient’s weight-loss journey.

The balloon will be in place for 12 months or less, based on patient preference. This is a major benefit over other gastric balloon options, which can only be in place for a much shorter period of time. Typically, rapid weight loss occurs within the first three months of the Orbera365 weight-management programme.

When it is time for balloon removal, the Orbera365 balloon will be removed via endoscopy. When patients continue to maintain healthy eating habits and their new exercise regimen, they are more likely to maintain their weight-loss results.

Ideal Candidates for the Orbera365 Gastric Balloon

The best candidates for the Orbera365 gastric balloon have a BMI of 27 or higher and have not experienced sustainable results from a supervised-weight-control programme.

Candidates who are planning to undergo surgery and want to reduce the chances of surgical complications may be right for Orbera365. These patients must either have a BMI above 40 or a BMI of 35 to 40 with comorbidities.

One aspect of the Orbera365 treatment process is a 12-month diet and exercise programme. Patients must be willing to follow this programme closely to be a candidate for this gastric balloon treatment.

Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have upcoming plans to become pregnant are not good candidates for Orbera365 weight loss. Additionally, patients with stomach ulcers and patients who have previously undergone oesophageal or gastric surgery may not be ideal candidates.

The Orbera365 Gastric Balloon Consultation

A consultation with Mr. Vasilikostas will involve a discussion of the patient’s weight-loss goals. He will ask questions about the patient’s health and lifestyle, and he will go over their complete medical history in order to minimise the chance of complications.

Mr. Vasilikostas will tell the patient more about the Orbera365 gastric balloon weight-loss programme and what to expect. This will include information about the balloon placement process and their transformative weight-loss journey with Orbera365. Patients are encouraged to ask questions at any time.

The Orbera365 Gastric Balloon Placement Process

Placement of the Orbera365 gastric balloon typically takes 20 to 30 minutes. It is completely non-surgical and requires no scalpels, incisions, or stitches.

At the start, a diagnostic endoscopy is performed. This will show Mr. Vasilikostas a detailed view of the oesophagus and stomach in order to detect anything that could potentially cause complications.

Next, the patient is mildly sedated. Once this takes effect, the deflated Orbera365 balloon is inserted through the throat and oesophagus. It is deposited into the stomach. The balloon is then filled with sterile saline until it has reached a size comparable to that of a grapefruit.
