FAQs

Your burning questions about the Allurion weight-loss Programme (previously known as the 'Elipse balloon')

Will I put the weight back on?

Up to 95% of weight-loss may be sustained 12 months after the Balloon exits the body! ¹

How is the Balloon placed?

The placement takes place during a 15-minute outpatient visit. Allurion is the first gastric balloon that requires no endoscopy* or anaesthesia for placement or removal. Simply swallow a capsule containing the deflated Balloon with a catheter: once the Balloon is confirmed to be in your stomach via x-ray, the Balloon is filled with water through the catheter. A second x-ray takes place to ensure the Balloon is filled correctly.

Does a doctor need to remove the Balloon?

No. After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon deflates and passes naturally. In very rare cases, an intervention might be required.*

How much weight can be lost with Allurion?

After approximately 16 weeks of the Allurion Programme, multiple clinical studies have demonstrated that patients lose on average 10–15% of their total body weight. If you still want to lose more weight, a second Balloon can be placed after completing the first programme.

Is the Allurion Program more effective than dieting alone?

Yes! The Allurion Program, a combination of our unique swallowable gastric balloon and a supported lifestyle change program, leads to nearly 2.5 times the weight loss than a lifestyle change program alone, according to an independent study.(superscript 1)

In another study, three-quarters of participants who attempted to lose weight over a year through calorie-controlled or restricted diets (72% of participants), exercise programs or courses (22%), and pharmaceutical treatments (12%), did not achieve a clinically meaningful weight loss defined as at least 5% of their body weight.(superscript 2) The evidence shows that these isolated methods alone are not enough.

The 6-month Allurion Program combines medical support and a weight-loss device (Allurion Gastric Balloon), digital tools (Allurion Connected Scale, Allurion Health Tracker and Allurion App) and nutritional coaching to kick-start your weight loss and help you form lifelong healthy habits to maintain the weight loss.
