Path to Weight Loss
At the DFW Bariatric Institute, we take a comprehensive approach to patient care.
Weight loss surgery may not be an option for patients who are moderately overweight, even if they struggle to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. We are proud to offer the DFW Balloon as an effective option for people who are seeking a non-surgical weight loss solution.
Have You Struggled to Lose Weight Through Diet and Exercise?
If you have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise, you are likely frustrated by the time you’ve spent on fad diets that fail and workout programs that don’t work. If you are not a candidate for weight loss surgery, or if you are not interested in surgical procedures, the DFW Balloon is a powerful tool that can kickstart weight loss while helping you develop skills and routines to maintain weight loss.
Little Downtime + Nonsurgical
We offer the DFW Balloon as a noninvasive, quick procedure with little downtime so you can minimize time away from your daily routine, and get started on a new you.
Your DFW Balloon Options
The gastric balloon is a non-surgical weight loss option that has been clinically proven to help people lose weight and keep it off. At the DFW Bariatric Institute we offer three gastric balloon options, the ReShape®, ORBERA™ Gastric Balloons and the Obalon Swallowable Balloon Pill.
The balloon helps to control appetite and food intake, giving you the advantage to embark on a successful weight loss journey. The insertion typically takes less than 30 minutes and the device is in place for a period of six months. While in place it safely takes up space in your stomach, which will reduce your appetite and enable you to eat smaller portions, stick to your diet plan, and develop healthy habits.
ReShape® DUAL GASTRIC BALLOON
The ReShape® Dual Gastric Balloon has two connected balloons that reduce the unlikely risk of migration, while conforming to the shape of the stomach. ReShape® patients receive a fitbit, access to an exclusive online portal, and six months of individual nutrition counseling.Learn how RESHAPE® WOrks
