The visual result
As part of your detailed consultation with the Athenix Body Sculpting team, you will be able to review dozens of gastric balloon before and after photographs that show the dramatic weight loss achieved by our Orbera and Reshape gastric balloon clients in the Fresno area. We have helped hundreds of people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and weight loss experiences to surprise themselves and rise above their struggles with food for a better future.
Using photos to make your decision
It’s important to find gastric balloon before and after photographs of clients that have similar body types to yours, so if you don’t see these right away, don’t hesitate to ask for additional pictures so you can make the best choice possible moving forward. In some cases, you may be able to actually meet and talk with former Athenix patients who have completed our gastric balloon program, depending on their availability and consent.
While many clients are initially focused on problems with their appearance, being overweight can affect you in many other ways that aren’t as obvious. Feeling easily fatigued, suffering from obesity-related ailments such as hypertension or diabetes, not being able to play with your kids, or struggling to combat depression can all be factors that motivate you to seek help just as much as the desire to look better.
"I feel great! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life."
Marie lost 24 lbs.
Marie Brown is an interior designer from Georgia who lost 24lbs with ORBERA®. After losing eight pounds in the first week she continued to lose a steady two to three pounds weekly. Marie says she would highly recommend ORBERA® to anyone who is having trouble losing weight. She felt that she was unaware of the changes she was making at times, simply because she wasn’t hungry. It was a big deal to Marie that she wasn’t constantly hungry while she was changing her diet. Because of this, she felt it didn’t affect her on a daily basis like a diet or diet pills would. It just became a part of her lifestyle. Marie has no doubt that ORBERA® would work for everybody looking to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.View Video
"I lost 30lbs with ORBERA® and kept the weight off for 5 years."
Andrew lost 30 lbs.
Andrew wasn't happy with himself. Andrew would look in the mirror and wonder if the day would ever come where he would feel comfortable in his own skin. Andrew believes trying ORBERA® was a changing point in his life. By his first follow-up appointment he had already lost his first 5lbs - and that was just the start. By the end of the first 6-months of his ORBERA® weight loss journey Andrew had lost 30lbs. His eating habits had changed and he felt a constant sense of accomplishment. Years ago he would just eat and eat until he felt overfull, but with the ORBERA® stomach balloon he realized that he had to change his eating habits. Between portion control and eating slowly, Andrew was able to change the way he ate. It has changed Andrew's life and he believes it can change yours too.View Video
