Non-Surgical Weight Loss with Beverly Hills Physicians
If you need to lose weight quickly because your long-term health is at stake, you may have considered bariatric procedures like the Lap Band. However, if your body mass index is less than 40, you may not qualify for minimally-invasive surgical options. People who have a BMI between 30 and 40 can still struggle with losing weight through diet and exercise alone, and yet can still develop serious chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and osteoarthritis. However, Beverly Hills Physicians now offers an FDA approved device called the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon. Our leading balloon weight loss doctor was one of the first in Los Angeles to offer this procedure, which helps people who are overweight, but not severely obese, rapidly reach a healthy goal weight.
Even better than bariatric surgery, the ORBERA device is a non-surgical weight loss method, so it is even less invasive than laparoscopic procedures. Our expert surgeon at Beverly Hills Physicians will implant a saline-filled “balloon” into your stomach, which takes up considerable space. This idea is similar to restrictive bariatric procedures like the Lap Band, which reduce the amount of food your stomach can take in. You will feel full much faster while consuming fewer calories, which helps you lose weight very quickly.
People who have used ORBERA typically lose 10 percent of their body weight, over 21 pounds on average. When combined with healthy changes to your diet and exercise routine, you can quickly reach your goal weight, overcome comorbid diseases, and stay healthy for a long time.
