Are you struggling to lose weight with diet and exercise alone? Expensive and drastic surgery isn’t the only option for weight loss. Bhatti Weightloss and Sculpting offers non-surgical weight loss options to help you lose the weight and keep it off! Learn more about our procedures below.
Orbera® Non-Surgical Gastric Balloon
Lose weight and keep it off – without surgery. Orbera® helps patients lose 3x the weight of diet and exercise alone. In our experience, most of our patients lose 10-20% of their body weight. This is not guaranteed and can vary, but Orbera® is an attractive weight loss options for those who have tried everything else and need a little boost in their weight loss journey.
Who is Orbera® For?
Orbera® is a non-surgical alternative for those who struggle to lose weight. If you’ve tried countless other diets and exercise programs, Orbera® can help you by giving you an initial boost to your weight loss journey.
How Much Does Orbera® Cost?
Orbera® costs $7,000 and is generally not covered by insurance. However, you can use FSA or HSA dollars. We also accept Care Credit. Because of our experience with Orbera® and other non-surgical weight loss options, we can help you find the best payment option.
OverStitch™ Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)
Another non-surgical weight loss option we offer is OverStitch™ Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG). This is a semi-permeant option that’s still less invasive than traditional weight loss surgery. For those who have tried every other option and are considering surgery, this can be a less intensive alternative. In the first 1-2 months, our patients typically lose 10-40 pounds. Because it is semi-permanent, you could lose all excess weight over time.
What is OverStitch™?
OverStitch™ is similar in concept to “stomach stapling” or gastric sleeve surgeries that you may have heard of. A flexible tube called an endoscope goes down your throat into your stomach and places stitches to make the inside area of your stomach smaller. This is less invasive than a gastric sleeve surgery because it shrinks your stomach area from the inside instead of from the outside.
Who is OverStitch™ For?
OverStitch™ is ideal for people who are considering surgical weight loss options, but are wary of surgery. Unlike surgery, OverStitch™ is reversible.
If you’re unsure if you qualify for OverStitch™ or any other non-surgical weight loss option, please contact our team for a consultation.
