BIB® is a weight loss program designed to help you achieve weight loss goals and builds on the clinical success of BIB®/ORBERA®.
BIB® is a two-part weight loss program designed to help you to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Long-lasting weight loss and overall health is much more achievable with BIB®'s gastric balloon technology, healthy diet, personalized exercise plan, and support team. It has been shown that patients can lose up to 3x the weight with BIB®'s weight loss system than with just diet and exercise alone.2
The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through your mouth, eliminating the need for incisions or stitches and the scars they leave behind. After the stomach balloon is inserted through the esophagus and properly into the stomach it's filled with a saline solution. When the BIB® stomach balloon is filled completely it is about the size of a grapefruit and moves freely around the stomach.
#1 GASTRIC BALLOON
BIB®/ORBERA® is the #1 weight loss balloon in the world. Over the last 20 years ORBERA® stomach balloons have helped over 300,000 people. The gastric balloon encourages portion control while you make healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle.2
UP TO 12 MONTHS
The BIB® weight loss system is much more than just a gastric balloon. The BIB® program provides you with up to 12 months of support including 6 months after the balloon has been placed and an additional 6 months once the balloon is removed. The physicians support team will help you to change your lifestyle, not only physically but mentally too. A healthy mindset is the key to achieving your weight loss goals and maintaining a new lifestyle.
How does it work?
The 2 Part Program
BIB® is a weight loss and healthy lifestyle program. For the first 6 months of the program a gastric balloon is placed in your stomach to help with portion control. This will help you to learn healthy portion control methods while your body adapts to your new lifestyle.
For the entire duration of the program you will be encouraged through the help from your support team to follow a diet and exercise plan. This not only helps in weight loss during the BIB® program, but also teaches you how to maintain a healthy lifestyle long-term through recommended exercises, healthy foods and portion sizes.
The BIB® stomach balloon is soft, durable and about the size of a grapefruit. While un-inflated, it is inserted through your mouth and into your stomach. This simple procedure eliminates the need for any incisions or stitches and usually takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. Once inserted carefully into the stomach, the silicone balloon is then filled with up to 700 cc of a saline solution. Once in place the stomach balloon can begin encouraging healthy portion control.
