Allurion Gastric Balloon

The Allurion gastric balloon is a soft balloon placed in your stomach. It is the first gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia for placement.

It can help you lose weight relatively quickly by making your stomach feel fuller for longer after eating relatively small meals. Average weghtloss is about 13% of TBW.

Getting the Allurion gastric balloon takes about 15 minutes. The balloon comes in a capsule with a thin tube. You will swallow the capsule and your doctor will use an X-ray to make sure the balloon is in your stomach. The balloon will be filled through the tube and the tube will be removed, completing the process.

The Allurion gastric balloon removes itself – with no need to visit your doctor. After about 16 weeks, the balloon will empty on its own and pass naturally.

You’ll receive the Allurion Scale and watch which pairs to your Mobile App that connects you with your consultant and dietitian to track your progress, receive ongoing support, and stay motivated.
