What Happens in an Allurion Gastric Balloon Procedure?

What Happens in an Allurion Gastric Balloon Procedure?

The procedure for Gastric Balloon Treatment begins with a physical/online consultation. During the consultation, the healthcare provider will check your eligibility and discuss your weight-loss goals to understand if the Allurion Program is right for you. Some routine tests may be conducted to check your eligibility.

If you are eligible, on the day of placement, you swallow the capsule that contains the balloon, under the supervision of an Allurion certified doctor with a glass of water (without anesthesia or endoscopy). Once the balloon is in place in the stomach, it is inflated with a sterile solution. With quick x-rays, the doctor confirms that the balloon placement is correct.

The balloon occupies space in the stomach, which gives a sense of fullness and satiety and helps you limit your snacking. The balloon is safe and temporary; after ~16 weeks, the balloon deflates and exits the body naturally. 

Our team of expert dieticians help connect your Health Tracker Watch, Connected Scale and the App so that both the assigned dietician and you can monitor your weight loss progression over a course of 6 months. The assigned dietician engages and helps the patient regularly with diet selection and other lifestyle changes to aid weight loss.
