Non-Surgical Weight Loss Experts on Your Side
If you have struggled with obesity for a long time, you may have thought about bariatric surgery. However, many obese people do not qualify because their body mass index is too low. Bariatric surgery is for people who have a BMI of 40 or greater, or a BMI of 35 with serious comorbid conditions like diabetes or heart disease. Unfortunately, this meant that people who had a BMI between 30 and 40 don’t qualify for a weight loss surgery. Now, Beverly Hills Physicians offers the new, non-surgical ORBERA system, and an expert balloon weight loss doctor, who can help you get healthy.
The ORBERA balloon weight loss treatment involves implanting a balloon-like device, filled with saline, into your stomach. The balloon is designed to temporarily help you lose weight, and is removed after six months. However, during that time, the balloon takes up room in your stomach, so you eat much less, and feel full much faster. The average amount of weight lost by people who used this new non-surgical bariatric technique is much higher than for people who try losing weight on their own – and for many people, it can mean difference between obesity and a healthy weight.
However, the balloon by itself won’t help you keep the weight off, which is why Beverly Hills Physicians also matches you with nutritionists, exercise coaches, and other weight loss experts to coach you through lifestyle changes. While your balloon is in, you learn about portioning, healthy food choices, exercise routines, and much more, so you can maintain your weight loss after the balloon is removed. Plus, having a team of experts means you get individual, professional support! Both counseling and the balloon can make for an outstanding non-surgical weight lossone-two punch.
