There’s no “one size fits all” approach for gastric procedures.

What’s right for someone else may not be right for you.

That’s WLSA will recommend a procedure for you following an in-depth consultation between you and one of our specialists.  Once we understand your unique circumstances then we can make real progress on your weight loss goals.

Orbera Intragastric Balloon

The Orbera Intragastric Balloon is a non-surgical procedure that involves placing a saline-filled balloon in the stomach. The gastric balloon is inserted through the oesophagus in a deflated state and then filled with saline while patients are under a low dose of anaesthetic.

As a guideline, the Orbera intragastric balloon is designed to assist overweight individuals with a BMI between 27 and 35 with their weight loss journey. The procedure is suited to those who are looking for an alternative option to weight loss surgery, and are motivated and keen to to comply with a Healthy Outcomes Process Program.

The gastric balloon remains in the stomach for 6 months, and patients can expect to lose a significant percentage of excess weight during this time.

As with all of our treatments, a 12-month Healthy Outcomes Process Program, which includes support from a WLSA psychologist and dietician, compliments the procedure, assisting patients to maintain the weight loss after the balloon is removed.

Success Stories

I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.

Seeing the ‘before’ photos now feels a bit crazy, but I’ll never be ashamed of my before photo, because that person was strong enough to take this life changing step.

The surgery decision is just the first step. The right mindset, new behaviors and connecting with the WSLA staff have all been key. I have so much more energy to funnel into work and the things that are important to me.

Even from just 4 weeks post-surgery, I had already lost a huge amount of weight and was feeling so much better in myself. Now, good habits and mindful eating are second nature to me. WLSA has had such an incredible positive impact on my life!
