Wellness & Weight Loss

We at Bailey Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Centre´ are excited to share that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved ORBERA™ to assist adult patients suffering from obesity – with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 – in losing and maintaining weight. ORBERA™ is a safe and effective weight loss solution with 20 years of global experience and real world results. More than 220,000 ORBERA™ balloons distributed worldwide in over 80 countries.

The ORBERA™ balloon is part of the ORBERATM Managed Weight Loss System, a comprehensive, non-surgical two-part program that includes a balloon filling space in a patient’s stomach to reinforce proper portion control. Data on ORBERA™ collected in the U.S. clinical trial has shown that the average person lost 3.1 times the weight as compared with diet and exercise alone within six months.
