The visual result
If you are new patient in the Seattle area, you may be very eager and excited to learn about the weight loss possibilities inherent in the Athenix gastric balloon program. You may be curious as to exactly how much weight you can lose, how fast the weight will come off, and how long you can keep it off. Have no fear, these questions and more will be answered in depth during your free confidential consultation at our Seattle offices.
Using photos to make your decision
Men and women of all ages, all backgrounds and all body types are finding out that they can achieve a slimmer healthier body without resorting to invasive bariatric surgery or diet pills. To showcase our amazing gastric balloon results, we have created an online library of gastric balloon before-and-after photography which can help you to better visualize the changes possible. Note that if you do not immediately see a former client that reflects your unique anatomy, feel free to ask the doctor for additional photographs. In some cases, you may even be able to meet with or talk with former gastric balloon clients and question them about their experience.
Many of our clients will come to us with a long history of having tried other weight loss programs. They may feel skeptical about the gastric balloon system at first, having known so much disappointment and failure in the past. What's different about the Seattle Athenix system is that we do not focus exclusively on physical weight loss, although that is a big part of the process. What we offer in tandem is a team of supportive life coaches, nutritionists and counselors who can help you to explore some of the mental and emotional aspects of compulsive eating. In this way, you will be pursuing a more holistic approach to weight loss, one that nourishes you on all levels and seeks to enrich your life in all areas.

"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
