Orbera Gastric Balloon Dubai

Quick Facts :


Orbera Gastric balloon is a minimally invasive treatment option for obesity. This technique involves restricting the patients’ appetite and helping them lose weight by inserting a fluid-filled balloon into their stomach endoscopically. This FDA-approved technique is indicated for obese/overweight patients with failed diet attempts and has proven to be a great alternative for patients who don’t want or can’t undergo major bariatric surgery.

However, there are several other factors that only Dr Girish can personally guide you through to know if this treatment is best suited for you.

How does it work?

An Orbera gastric balloon is made of medical-grade silicone; in the form of a grapefruit-size capsule. After it is inserted into the stomach using an endoscope, a thin, sterile device, it partially fills the stomach. The Orbera balloon works in two ways to help you lose weight: 

  1.  It delays gastric emptying thus making you feel fuller for longer. As a result, you eat lesser times a day. 
  2.  It reduces the stomach capacity and limits your food intake. Consequently, you consume a lower amount of food than you previously used to.

After 6-12 months (as per the type of the balloon), the balloon is removed from your stomach, and our professionals provide you with a medically supervised program to manage your dietary plan and exercises. By adopting good healthy eating habits and developing a sustainable lifestyle, you can retain the weight loss for the long term.

Orbera gastric balloon procedure

Before the Orbera gastric balloon procedure begins, Dr Girish will ask you about your medical history and will also perform a physical test to determine your eligibility for the same. 


To place the unfilled Orbera gastric balloon, it is inserted through the mouth and esophagus with the aid of an endoscopic camera. Then the balloon is filled with saline fluid using a tube to inflate to 400 and 700* cubic centimetres volume and the tube is removed afterwards. The volume of inflation depends on the patient’s overall weight and the size of the stomach. This procedure takes between 10 to 15 minutes. You will be able to return home the same day after recovery.


Within 6 to 12 months, through the esophagus an endoscopic camera is again introduced into the stomach. The gastric balloon is then punctured, deflated, grasped with forceps, and then removed.
