If you are not a candidate for weight loss surgery or would like to try another option before considering surgery, Omaha Gastric Bypass is pleased to provide access to exclusive non-surgical weight loss options that may be right for you. As a provider of ORBERA, a highly effective balloon-based weight loss system, we offer an alternative unparalleled by any clinic in the greater Omaha area.
What Is Non-Surgical Weight Loss?
Undergoing surgery is not right for everyone, and may not be right for you. Non-surgical weight loss options are valid, alternative options to surgery. Non-surgical weight loss options include lifestyle changes and non-invasive procedures. One non-invasive procedure involves a temporary implement that is inserted into the stomach, mimicking a surgical reduction. The implement reduces appetite and restricts food consumption.
All weight loss procedures are taken seriously at Omaha Gastric Bypass. Whether you choose a surgical or a non-surgical approach to losing weight and staying healthy, our full team of medical professionals will be involved throughout the duration of your care. From counseling to nutrition planning, we are able to support you from beginning to end.
ORBERA is a non-surgical balloon inserted into the stomach through the mouth. Patients are given a small dose of anesthesia to increase comfort during the procedure. Once the balloon is in place, a syringe is used to inflate it. The balloon takes up room in the stomach and creates a false sense of fullness. The process takes less than an hour, and patients are free to return home the same day. After approximately six months of use, the balloon is removed in a similar process to insertion. During use, patients will learn positive fitness and dietary habits that can then be applied to everyday living.
