Orbera®Gastric Balloon in Jacksonville & Fleming Island, FL
Losing weight can be a struggle for even the most dedicated and driven individuals. That’s why Coastal Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, offers the Orbera® weight loss system to residents from Jacksonville, Fleming Island, and throughout the world who are looking for a safe and effective option to assist them in their efforts to lose weight.
Orbera® is a new FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive approach to weight loss that is proven to help people achieve and maintain significant weight loss. It is completely different from any diet, program, or procedure you may have tried or considered before.
The Orbera® weight loss management system is a comprehensive program that combines the most effective gastric balloon technology with coaching and a personalized diet and exercise plan to help people achieve and maintain dramatic weight loss results. Orbera® is a great weight loss alternative for individuals that do not qualify for surgery and for those that want a surgical alternative.
With Orbera®, a deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach. Next, the balloon is inflated to roughly the size of a grapefruit and is filled with a sterile saline solution. The balloon remains in the patient’s stomach for six months. Due to the size of the balloon, the patient will gradually begin to adjust to eating smaller, healthier portion sizes. In six months, the procedure is reversed and the balloon is removed in a non-surgical procedure.
With Orbera®, patients have been able to lose three times more weight than by diet and exercise alone. More than 220,000 gastric balloons have been used globally through Orbera® and thousands of people have been able to achieve and maintain their weight loss goals.
One Year of Comprehensive Coaching and Support
Orbera® Coach combines the portion-controlling benefits of a gastric balloon with comprehensive coaching to change your eating habits, enhance your physical fitness, and help you adopt a healthy lifestyle that supports long-term success. While the balloon is inside y
our stomach, you will have a monthly one-on-one session with a registered dietician coach as well as monthly group sessions. You will receive personalized nutrition, fitness, and behavior guidance to help maximize your success and motivational tools via your favorite digital device.
Once the balloon is removed, you will continue to meet with your dietician coach to make sure that you maintain your healthy lifestyle to reach your goals. With ongoing coaching support, most patients maintain their weight loss or continue to lose weight.
Patients also have access to the Orbera® mobile app, a comprehensive tool that has everything you need to track your success. The portal includes weight logging, a unique picture-based food diary, activity tracking, goal setting, articles and recipes, community forums, important reminders, and the ability to easily share data with your doctor.
Life-Changing Weight Loss, Without Surgery

Orbera® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. Patients do not experience scars, stitches or incisions. If you do not require surgery or do not want it, then Orbera® may be a good weight loss option for you.
