At Marina Weight Loss Center, we understand that, for some, following diet plans alone won’t allow you to get the results you desire. No matter if you have struggled with weight for your entire life, or if you are simply looking to make a positive change in your life, the non-surgical ORBERA™procedure can help.
ORBERA™ is a non-surgical weight loss solution that combines a clinically tested and FDA-approved gastric balloon with a customized plan and support team to help you reach your health and weight loss goals.
With ORBERA™, patients lost an average of 3.1 times more than other weight loss patients lost with diet and exercise alone.
The comprehensive, two-part program starts with a soft, medical-grade balloon placed in your stomach for six months. As the balloon takes up space in your stomach, you will feel fuller faster, making it easier to control portions.
Throughout the duration of your six months with the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon, you will be partnered with support experts that will develop a personalized diet and exercise plan, tailored to your specific goals.
Once you have reached the sixth month of treatment, our doctors will remove the balloon. To help you retain your results, your support team will continue to coach, motivate, and assist you in living your new, healthy lifestyle.
