Is Gastric Balloon Right for Me?
If you’ve ever wanted to lose weight but struggled with regular diet and exercise, you might have considered weight loss surgery. However, not everyone can qualify for procedures like Lap Band and gastric sleeve. In order to have weight loss surgery, you need to have a BMI of at least 35 and/or an accompanying obesity-related illness, like diabetes or heart disease. But if you don’t qualify for those procedures, what do you do? At Beverly Hills Physicians, we’ve development a non-invasive weight loss procedure for everyone else.
The gastric balloon procedure is a temporary non-surgical option. An OBERA balloon is endoscopically inserted in the stomach through the mouth. Once it’s placed within your stomach, it’s safely inflated. The balloon is only intended to stay with the patient for six months. During that time, you’ll fill up faster than ever before during meals, keeping you from overeating. Patients see tremendous results during that time, when they were previously unable to lose weight the traditional ways. With Beverly Hills Physicians’ bariatric specialists, you can lose the necessary weight to lead a healthier and happier life without turning to surgical options.
Whether you’re looking for the gastric balloon options or surgical procedures like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills Physicians is the best place for all of your weight loss options. Our incredible team is dedicated to helping you feel comfortable in your own skin and lead a happier life. Call today to set up a free consultation with one of our amazing bariatric specialists.
