How Does The Gastric Balloon Work?

A swallowable balloon, the Allurion Balloon (previously known as Elipse Balloon) is a balloon in a small capsule and you swallow under the guidance of our Healthcare Professionals without anaesthesia or endoscopy*.

The stomach balloon (UK) will be inflated, checked using a quick x-ray and you’ll be on your way! The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. You will also be supported by the Allurion Connected Scale, Health Tracker, and App.

What happens to the Allurion Balloon?

During your Balloon journey, you and your healthcare team will focus on your relationship with food, goals, and education to help you achieve the best weight-loss results for you, and to set you up for weight loss maintenance after the Balloon has gone. After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon will naturally deflate and pass through your digestive system.

Why choose the Allurion Balloon as your weight-loss aid?

'I recommend Allurion to many of my weight loss patients because invasive weight-loss surgeries and other gastric balloons which require endoscopy or anesthesia have risks of their own - especially for heavier patients. I've been really impressed with my patients' adaptation to the Allurion Balloon, and they say that their newly curbed appetite makes the process of weight loss much easier - they're no longer battling against themselves.'

Frequently Asked Questions

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 anesthesia 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.

Is Allurion better than dieting alone?

Yes. A recent clinical study has shown that when coupled with a 16-week intensive lifestyle modification (of nutrition and exercise), Allurion leads to significant weight loss when compared to lifestyle modification alone. The percentage of patients achieving 10% of total body weight loss at 16 weeks was 72% with Allurion, compared to just 8% of those who tried to lose weight with diet and exercise alone. Allurion has more success than dieting alone because patients feel less hungry, feel fuller more quickly after eating, and will not have hunger attacks which can be experienced when typically dieting. ¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰ **

Can I return to normal activities after placement?

After the 15-minute placement, you can continue with your life however you may have some side effects for a few days such as nausea. Your Healthcare Professional will advise you on care and nutrition after placement and the best plan to resume your activities such as gym and exercise.

Will it be obvious to others that I have the Allurion Balloon in my stomach?

No. The Allurion Programme is a discrete experience. Unless you tell people, no one will know you have had the Balloon placed.

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. ¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰ **

Will I put the weight back on?

95% of patients sustain their weight loss 12 months after their Balloon placement! ¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰ **

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.*
