WHAT IS OBESITY

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing more than is considered healthy.

ORBERA BALLOON

Among our advanced bariatric weight loss programs, we offer the Orbera Gastric Balloon—an innovative, non-surgical approach to weight loss. This non-invasive procedure can help patients lose up to 70 pounds, all without a single incision.

ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY (ESG)

Using an endoscopic approach, the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty procedure reduces the size of the stomach. With this technique, our patients have reported spectacular outcomes—resulting in boosted confidence and resurgence of health.

LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY (LSG)

By reducing the size of the stomach by about 85%, the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy helps patients feel full sooner, causing them to eat less. With this reduced caloric intake (ideally combined with an exercise regimen), the results are spectacular.

BODY CONTOURING

After a patient has lost significant weight through bariatric surgery, many will be left with excess skin that belittles their accomplishment. As such, many bariatric patients seek plastic surgery to reveal the final result of their weight loss journey. Post-bariatric patients are among the happiest patients we treat, as they can now fully flaunt their hard work and new body. To learn more about post-bariatric body contouring, please call our office to schedule a private consultation.

It’s your body—own it.

Acid Reflux Treatment


Gastroesophageal reflux disease, otherwise known as GERD, is a condition in which the contents of the stomach come back up the esophagus. Amongst these contents is stomach acid, which causes heartburn or acid indigestion. At Ideal Body Institute, we effectively treat this frustrating and painful conditions with a variety of options.

TIF

Transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) treats gastroesophageal reflux disease with minimally invasive techniques. In fact, it is performed through the mouth, meaning patients require zero incisions for the treatment.

STRETTA

The Stretta procedure leverages radiofrequency energy to produce a controlled injury. This results in a thickening of the lower esophageal sphincter, limiting the reflux of stomach acid.

LINX

The LINX is a deviced placed around the gastroesophageal junction, consisting of titanium beads and a magnetic core. This prevents stomach acid from entering the esophagus, while simultaneously allowing food to pass to the stomach.

CELLVIZIO

By using the world’s smallest flexible microscope, Cellvizio allows providers to view microscopic images of tissue instantly. This allows our providers to identify and treat cells that have changed due to acid reflux before they turn cancerous.
