The future of weight loss
With its distinguished reputation for dynamic body contouring results, Athenix is pleased to offer clients the very latest in obesity-fighting gastric implants. The Orbera and Reshape spherical balloon systems allow patients to feel fuller faster, hastening weight loss along with key lifestyle changes that keep the pounds off long term.
Minimal and elegant
The FDA-approved stomach balloon is inserted endoscopically through the mouth, so no incisions, heavy anesthesia, pain or suturing is required. Once the balloon is in place in your belly, it is filled with sterile saline, and it remains there for six months. The entire procedure takes just 30 minutes, so you can be back on your feet and enjoying life the very next day.
What makes the Athenix gastric balloon system so unique is that it bridges the distance between more invasive procedures such as bariatric surgery and ordinary weight loss measures like going on a diet or exercising. You participate in a 12-month, total immersion program, receiving not just the implant, but one-on- one personalized nutritional counseling, motivational life coaching, an individual exercise plan that suits your personality, and 24/7 access to our supportive online community in the Orange County and Irvine areas.
Experience the Athenix Difference
At Athenix, our board-certified doctors are known for their superior technique, rigorous training, and approachable, compassionate demeanor. We understand that undergoing the gastric balloon procedure can be a big step, so we spend as much time as necessary making sure you are adequately educated and informed about all the benefits and risks of moving forward. We believe that a knowledgeable patient is the best type of patient!
While we are always excited about our latest weight loss strategies, the Athenix team will never suggest a procedure unless it is categorically within the patient’s best interest. There are several requirements and contraindications for the gastric balloon, so you will need to discuss these at length with your doctor to make sure you indeed qualify for the treatment. If for some reason the gastric balloon isn’t an option, Athenix will help you to find an alternative that accomplishes your goals. We are on your side.
Here at Athenix we are exceptionally proud of our successful weight loss clients and enjoy featuring their stories in detail. Many struggled for years with traditional dieting attempts, but after repeated failures felt that simply nothing would ever work for them. Others wanted to take action, but were put off by the invasiveness of complex GI surgery so they did nothing. Athenix strives to create a family-like community that is strong, supportive and always there for you.Learn More
