Will I regain weight if the ORBERA balloon is removed?

It is possible to regain weight after any bariatric procedure. This can also occur after the ORBERA balloon is removed.

Your doctor will tell you more about the benefits and potential risks related to this procedure. Like any other bariatric intervention, the ORBERA intragastric balloon system involves some postoperative restriction.

If you thoroughly follow your diet guidelines and you maintain an active lifestyle, you will be able to enjoy the weight benefits of the Orbera balloon even after removal.
