How Much Does Orbera® Cost?
At Allure Medical, our one of a kind Orbera® Weight-loss program includes your balloon insertion and removal, several follow-up appointments with our specialists as well as diet and exercise counseling with our qualified nutritionist.
The total cost of the Orbera® procedure is $7,750.
Orbera® is not covered by insurance, however, Allure Medical offers Care Credit as a financing option.
How Orbera® Works
Orbera® is a gastric balloon that is a non-surgical and temporary weight loss device. A smooth, soft saline-filled balloon is placed in your stomach, allowing you to control your portion sizes by filling up that space. There are no incisions, stitches or scars. Your weight loss journey begins the very same day as your insertion.
Your Orbera® balloon will be in your stomach for a period of one to six months, depending on the amount of weight-loss needed. After that, a similar procedure to the insertion is used to remove the balloon and your new healthy lifestyle carries on.
