ORBERA Gastric Balloon & Weight Loss Program

The Problem

Weight loss can be a daunting task – one made all the more difficult by the stresses of modern daily life and our busy schedules. Our hectic environments make it easy for us to gain weight but far more difficult to shed it, thus leading to a loss of confidence, hindered quality of life and a long list of potential health problems.

The Private Clinic are no longer offering the Orbera gastic balloon. There are other options to consider if you have a BMI (Body Mass index) between 30-34, traditional liposuction and or a tummy tuck might be the right choice.

If you are based in Glasgow we offer the Alevere weight loss therapy, which has shown fast track results. Alevere therapy is a medically supervised programme that allows you to achieve your ideal weight reliably, predictably and relatively quickly – and at the same time maintain it while tightening your skin and contouring your body.

The ORBERA Gastric Balloon & Weight Loss Program

  • No surgery
  • No scars
  • Balloon placed directly in the stomach
  • Return home the same day
  • Hundreds of thousands balloons placed worldwide

The Orbera gastric balloon is the starting step to your lifestyle change. It is a tool that is aimed at giving you the control needed to make the long-term shift to a healthier, more positive lifestyle. The Orbera balloon is a soft, saline filled balloon that is placed in the stomach for around six months. It partially fills your stomach giving you the ‘satiety’ effect – meaning a feeling of fullness. This should help you eat smaller amounts and feel fuller than you usually would.

The weight loss program starts with a consultation with one of our Doctors to assess your suitability for the balloon. Once your suitability has been confirmed, your information will be passed on to our neighbouring Bariatric Surgeon, Prof. NadeyHakim, who has treated over 3,000 patients with the Orbera balloon to help them with their weight loss journey.

Prof. Hakim’s experience with the balloon is very extensive and he places and removes the balloon with the aid of an endoscopy, under sedation (no general anaesthetic needed).

We aim to empower you with the knowledge, skills and will power to take control of your fitness and dietary habits so that once the program is over, you are able to maintain your results and continue the lifestyle you have created for yourself.

The Orbera Gastric Balloon Results

By complying with the weight loss programme, the balloon can help you lose between 10-15kg.* It can serve as a defining starting point for those who need a kick-start to their weight loss journey and positive healthy lifestyle.

The key to the success is patient suitability and selection. The gastric balloon isn’t a magic pill – you need to make sure you are convinced and committed to improving the quality of your life by losing weight and improving the quality and quantity of the food you eat. The balloon makes it easier for you to eat less, but your commitment is what’s key to your success.

In order to determine your suitability for the ORBERA gastric balloon, a full consultation with the Doctor is required. The consultation is £100.
