A number of procedures have some utility in achieving short term weight loss. These include:
- Intragastric Balloon (Orbera)
- Endoscopic Gastric Plication (Endoscopic Sleeve)
Both of these procedures have not shown any medium to long term weight loss maintenance and in the opinion of the BodyFree Team are best utilized for short term weight loss that may be essential for a different surgical procedure such as cancer operation.
The Medicare funding for Endoscopic Gastric Plication was removed in 2018.
BodyFree is not currently offering Endoscopic Bariatric procedures.
