Obalon Swallowable Gastric Balloon

Obalon Swallowable Balloon System For Weight Loss

The Obalon Balloon System is the only swallowable balloon system for weight loss. The procedure is designed for patients with a body mass index (BMI) between 30-40 and is a good weight loss option for people who do not qualify for or do not want surgery.

The Obalon Balloon System helps you lose weight by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less and feel full. During the 6 months that the balloon system is in place, you work with your doctor and registered dietitian to establish better eating and lifestyle habits that will further your weight loss. After the balloons are removed, you will continue with six more months of personalized counseling to maintain your weight loss.

How the Obalon Balloon System Works

The Obalon Balloon System is unique because it is the only balloon system that you swallow. There is no need for sedation for the balloon placement. All you do is swallow a capsule, which is then inflated by the doctor through a thin tube. That’s it. The whole process takes only about 10 minutes and most patients return to normal activities right away with no downtime. You can even drive yourself to the appointment.

The Obalon Balloon System is the only balloon that is filled with gas, rather than saline. This allows the balloons to sit at the top of the stomach where they help you feel fuller after consuming less food. Two more balloons are placed one at a time over a three-month period. This helps with progressive weight loss and to minimize side effects. At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are deflated and removed by a brief outpatient endoscopic procedure, which is performed under light sedation.
