If you think you’ve tried everything, surgery doesn’t have to be the answer.
The doctor will explain the Program in details, ask your medical history to ensure your suitability and answer your questions – then book your placement.
Return to your doctor for your simple, less than 20-minutes, Balloon placement.
Return home the same day, armed with your Allurion Connected Scale, Allurion Health Tracker and Allurion Mobile App, having begun your weight-loss journey.
Your questions answered
How is the Balloon placed?
The placement takes place during a less than 20-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 a catheter. A second x-ray takes place to ensure the Balloon is filled correctly.
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 ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰ **
