The Allurion Gastric Balloon takes up space in the stomach, reduces hunger and increases satiety, helping to reduce daily calorie intake3. Placed without surgery, it is swallowed and filled with sterile water during a 15-minute consultation19. It empties and eliminates naturally around 4 months later1.

Your questions about Allurion's weight loss program.

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric balloon is a weight loss solution that consists of placing a flexible balloon filled with liquid (or in some cases air) in the stomach. It reduces its capacity and thus reduces the feeling of hunger and increases satiety, which reduces daily caloric intake.3 It can also slow down the emptying of the stomach, which means that your food stays longer in your stomach, even if you have eaten less. As your body feels more satisfied, it can also help you control the frings sometimes felt between meals.6 This method is a less invasive alternative to weight loss surgery and whose safety and effectiveness have been demonstrated by different clinical studies.2 The balloon usually remains in the stomach for several months, during which it helps you eat smaller portions, consume fewer calories and lose weight significantly.1,2 After this period of residence, the balloon empties and is removed either by endoscopy or, in the case of the Allurion Balloon, by natural means. **

Is the capsule easy to swallow?

We understand that swallowing the capsule that contains the Allurion Balloon can worry some people; especially because of the nauseat reflex.

However, a clinical study with 1770 patients showed that 99.99% of patients manage to swallow the capsule.1 If you struggle to swallow it by yourself, your doctor can help you and gently guide the capsule down by stiffening the catheter. The nausea reflex is avoided by placing it quickly in the stomach. In the study carried out, 36% of patients benefited from this help.

Is the Allurion Balloon more effective than a diet alone?

Yes. A clinical study has shown that the Allurion Balloon, in addition to a behavior change program (nutritional monitoring and adoption of a more active life), allows you to lose nearly 2.5 times more weight than a behavior change program alone.4

In this study, 17% of patients who followed the Allurion Program (Ballon Allurion + Behavior Change Program) lost more than 20% of their total weight! 4

The Allurion Program can therefore help to achieve better results, compared to a diet alone, since the gastric balloon can help patients feel less hungry, to feel full faster after eating by slowing down stomach emptying, and therefore less to feel the "hunger" and hunger attacks that can be experienced during a classic diet.3,6

How much weight can we lose with the Allurion Gastric Balloon?

After about 4 months, several clinical studies have shown that Allurion Program patients lose an average of 10 to 15% of their total body weight.1,2

In addition, you can increase your weight loss with a second consecutive Allurion Balloon and lose an average of 23% of your weight in 12 months.7***
