Your questions answered
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 **
Is the Allurion Balloon more effective than dieting alone?
Yes. When combined with intensive weight loss strategies, the Allurion Balloon leads to nearly 2.5 times more weight-loss than when undertaking intensive weight-loss strategies alone, across 16 weeks. In fact, 17% of patients undertaking intensive weight loss strategies alongside the Allurion Balloon achieved a weight loss of over 20% of their total body weight! 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 **
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 **
