Take Your First Step To A Better Quality Of Life

In addition to being minimally invasive and reversible, the gastric balloon has other advantages. The nature of the balloon does not interfere with the absorption of nutrients; therefore, patients are less likely to develop a vitamin deficiency. Also, the health benefits of weight loss are well-documented. Losing excess weight can improve or even resolve type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, asthma and high cholesterol.

He is supported by a hand-picked team of weight loss professionals that value your health and happiness.

The Benefits Of The Gastric Balloon

  • Non-surgical weight loss treatment
  • Helps control appetite and manage hunger
  • Removable/reversible
  • Low-risk

​​​​​​​The Orbera gastric balloon is a soft, silicone balloon that is placed inside your stomach. When inflated, it reduces your stomach’s capacity, which produces the sensation of satiety. Since the stomach holds less, you feel fuller with smaller amounts of food. This triggers rapid weight loss.

More About The Gastric Balloon

The Orbera gastric balloon is placed during a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. It is inserted through an endoscope into the stomach in a deflated state. Then, it is inflated with a sterile saline solution. The process is performed under light sedation and takes 20 to 30 minutes.

​​​​​​​The gastric balloon is designed to remain in your stomach for up to six months. Long Island Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Buchin and his team will monitor your progress and provide ongoing psychological support during the six months. We will set up a comprehensive diet and exercise plan to prepare you for long-term success after the gastric balloon is removed. The removal process is similar to the placement, and performed with light sedation.

Am I A Candidate For The Gastric Balloon?

You might be a candidate for the Orbera gastric balloon if you are 30 to 100 pounds overweight with a BMI of 30 to 40. Dr. Buchin will meet with you personally to evaluate your current health status and decide whether the gastric balloon is a suitable treatment option. He considers a variety of factors when making this decision, including your medical history, previous weight loss attempts and long-term weight loss goals.
