Allurion Balloon

You Have The Power.

The Allurion Gastric Balloon gives you the power to cut cravings and lose weight. This is a game changer - the swallowable gastric balloon with a 20-minute appointment.

The Allurion Balloon is swallowed in a capsule. Once placed and inflated, it creates a feeling of fullness to help control hunger.

Most conventional diets fail due to constant feelings of hunger, but you do not have to resort to surgery to get results.


The Allurion Balloon is safe, non-permanent, recommended by doctors, and can help you kickstart an average loss of 10-15% of your body weight in just 16 weeks⁴ alongside our fully supported 6-month lifestyle Program.

Step by step

Initial consultation with approved doctor

​​​​​​The process starts with an initial consultation with one of our approved doctors, who will explain the process and make sure you feel safe and comfortable. They will discuss your weight-loss goals and health history to ensure that the Allurion Balloon is right for you.

The Balloon is placed in your stomach in a less than 20-minute procedure

Swallow a small capsule which contains the deflated Balloon. It is attached to a very thin catheter that the doctor will use to inflate the Balloon with water once placed in your stomach. X-rays are used to ensure the Balloon is in the right position and filled correctly before the catheter is gently removed. It really is that simple!

Your appetite adjusts

The Balloon takes up space in your stomach leaving less room for food. You feel less hungry as cravings are reduced, helping you eat less and lose weight. You will also receive an Allurion Connected Scale, Allurion Health Tracker and Allurion Mobile App to monitor your achievements and share your success with your care team.

You reset your relationship with food

You will be supported by a dedicated healthcare team to help change your eating behaviour and lose weight for the long-term.

You achieve long-lasting weight-loss goals

After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon naturally deflates and passes through the digestive system*. Your support team remain at hand to help you maintain your new relationship with food and keep the weight off. The Allurion Program has shown that up to 95% of average weight loss can be sustained one year after the Balloon exits the body³.
