Weight Loss Results With The Orbera Gastric Balloon

Have you felt like your efforts to lose weight with only diet and exercise are not working at all? Often, you do not even see any progress but get more frustrated and hopeless day after day. In such cases, external help is a must. Sometimes, a person just needs a little push to start a better life. A stomach balloon that helps you reduce food intake is an effective weight loss solution that brings real results. At Simmons MD Advanced Weight Loss Solutions, we help our patients to achieve the maximum possible results with the gastric balloon. Let’s discuss what outcomes you can expect from the Orbera procedure.

With Orbera, You Always Can Set A New Maximum Result

The results from the gastric balloon can be different for everyone. It depends on the individual and how he or she uses the Orbera balloon for weight loss.

Taking some specific examples of patients who had Orbera, the results can range from 30 lbs to 126 lbs. But again, these results depend on the individual. If you make more effort, follow all the guidelines, and embrace the weight loss journey, you could always set a new maximum and lose more than 126 lbs with the stomach balloon.

Regarding the minimum results, some people may lose less than others, but usually, people can expect to lose at least 30 to 40 pounds in the first six months of the treatment.

Generally, patients lose more weight in the first three months after the Orbera implantation. In the following 6 to 12 months, patients continue to lose weight, but the dynamic of weight loss slows down. At that time, it is very important to focus on maintaining weight and adopting a new lifestyle to keep the result from a gastric balloon.

Studies showed that the average weight loss after 3 months of gastric balloon therapy was between 23 lbs to 30 lbs while the results after 6 months ranged from 27 lbs to 60 lbs. Six months after the removal of the balloon, the results showed that patients managed to lose about 14% to 50.9 % of the excess weight loss. However, it’s important to emphasize that these are average results, and your results can be lower than or exceed these figures.

What It Takes To Get The Best Outcome

To better understand the results from the balloon in the stomach, it is important to keep in mind that Orbera helps patients lose weight by making the patient feel full faster and thus, consume fewer calories. However, to maximize the results, it is essential to not only eat less but follow a proper, healthy diet and commit to regular physical exercises.

Success Stories: Stomach Balloon Is A Game-Changer

We have discussed the results of other people who lost 30 lbs or 130 lbs and the maximum and minimum results from the Orbera are contingent upon the individual’s efforts and conditions. At the end of the day, the most important result that the Orbera balloon can bring you is not just lost pounds, but the confidence, joy, and power that you feel afterward.

For many patients, a stomach balloon was a catalyst for transformation. Here are some of the patients who used a gastric balloon as a tool to change their lives for the better.

Lindsay combines her role as a loving mom and a business owner. With all her numerous responsibilities, she had little time for herself which led to the accumulation of extra weight.
