Your New Health Starts Here

At Brisbane General & Obesity Surgery, we continually strive to provide the most effective, non-surgical weight loss solutions. As Australia’s Number One Allurion Gastric Balloon Clinic, we are proud to also offer both the BIB and Orbera 365 Balloon procedures to facilitate weight loss by promoting feelings of satiety, fullness and improving portion control.

What Are The BIB and Orbera 365 Balloons?

The BIB Balloon and Orbera 365 Balloon are advanced gastric balloons designed to temporarily reside in the stomach for 6 or 12 months. These balloons are inserted either via endoscopy or sedation, ensuring a minimally invasive procedure. Once in place, they occupy space in the stomach and create a sensation of fullness. This naturally aids patients in reducing meal portions and curbing unnecessary snacking.

Depending on individual needs and the specific balloon used, they can remain in the stomach for either 6 or 12 months. This flexibility allows for tailored weight loss programs to suit various patient requirements. Interested in the BIB Balloon or Orbera Balloon in Brisbane? Contact our team today.

How Do These Procedures Work?

The core idea behind both the BIB balloon and Orbera 365 gastric balloon is space occupancy. By taking up a significant portion of the stomach’s volume, the balloons reduce its food-holding capacity. Patients feel fuller faster, leading to reduced food intake. Patients can lose 10-15% of their total body weight with this procedure which can lead to significant health improvements.

Whilst the gastric balloon is in place, it also provides a honeymoon period for patients to work with our supportive team to build positive and healthy lifestyle behaviors that will encourage maintenance of weight-loss, once the balloon has been removed.

Why Choose BIB or 365 Orbera Balloon in Brisbane?

  • Minimally invasive: With either endoscopy or anaesthesia, there’s minimal discomfort and quick recovery times.
  • Customised duration: Depending on the balloon type and individual needs, it can remain in place for 6 or 12 months.
  • Natural feeling: The sensation of fullness feels natural, making dietary adjustments smoother.
  • Expert guidance: Under the proficient care of Dr Wong, Dr Lim and our dedicated team, patients receive comprehensive support throughout their weight loss journey.
  • After the procedure: Post-insertion, patients often feel an immediate difference in their appetite. While there may be initial discomfort or nausea, these effects are temporary and soon give way to a new dietary routine. Our dietitians will guide you through the transition, ensuring your nutritional needs are met even with reduced food intake.

With regular check-ups, our team will monitor your progress, ensuring optimal results and addressing any concerns that might arise.
