What is BIB?

  • The BIB weight loss system provides you with positive results in only 3 months and stays in place for up to 6 months for ongoing support.

How is the procedure done?

  • Non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated BIB balloon is placed into the stomach.  It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the very same day.
  • At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was inserted, through a nonsurgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed.

What to Expect

  • The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first three months of treatment
  • On average BIB/ORBERA patients lost 1 times the weight loss of diet and exercise alone
  • The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results

To qualify for BIB, you should:

  • Be an adult
  • BMI of >30 kg/m2
  • Be willing to participate in a medically supervised program
