The Obalon Balloon System helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less.
When used with a diet and exercise program, people in the clinical trial lost twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.
Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at 1 year (6 months post-removal), when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and doesn’t require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon, and then your physician inflates the balloon.
A fully inflated single balloon has a volume of 250cc, weighing approximately 3 grams (less than a penny) and about the size of a small orange. Therefore, all three balloons have a combined volume of 750cc.
