What Is Obalon?

The Obalon Balloon System is a swallowable intragastric balloon to facilitate weight loss in moderately obese adults who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. The system is intended to be used in combination with diet modification. The balloons are removed after 6 months of treatment.

PROVEN WEIGHT LOSS

Patients with the Obalon Balloon System combined with diet & exercise lost approximately TWICE AS MUCH weight as those with diet & exercise alone.

LONG-TERM RESULTS

89% of Obalon patients kept their weight off six months after balloons were removed. Patients continued to enjoy moderate exercise and maintained their diet modification.

NON-SURGICAL

The Oblaon Balloon System is the first and only swallowable, lightweight balloon system that is FDA Approved for weight loss in people with moderate obesity.

NO DOWNTIME

The placement of each balloon is convenient. Treatments typically take less than 10 minutes and requires no surgery or sedation.

How It Works

The Obalon Balloon System helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less. During treatment, you will receive professional nutrition and exercise support to help you make the lifestyle changes that promote weight loss. With the Obalon Balloon System and support, you can keep the weight off for the long term.

The Treatment

handobalon

1. PLACEMENT

NO ANESTHESIA | NO SURGERY | NO DOWNTIME
You swallow a capsule approximately the size of a vitamin pill, attached to a micro-catheter. Using an X-ray, your physician confirms that the capsule is safely in your stomach. As the capsule dissolves, the balloon is inflated with gas. The micro-catheter is removed quickly and smoothly. With your physician’s OK, you’re all set and can go back to your daily activities.

The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. You swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then your physician inflates the balloon. In the clinical study after placement, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime.

2. THERAPY

NO PERMANENT SURGICAL CHANGES | PROGRESSIVE WEIGHT LOSS | HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Three balloons are placed one at a time over three months to facilitate progressive weight loss and help minimize side effects. The light and buoyant balloons float in the top of your stomach. You eat less food because the balloons take up space in your stomach. Nutritional guidelines and exercise program during the entire treatment help you jump-start a healthy lifestyle. At the end of six months, all three balloons are removed.

FAQ

How long is the treatment?

The Obalon Balloon treatment is a 6-month treatment. After the first balloon your doctor will usually have you swallow a second balloon capsule 1 month after the first balloon and a third balloon capsule 2 months after the second balloon. All balloons will be taken out 6 months after the first balloon capsule is swallowed.

How is the Obalon Balloon System placed?

Placement of the Obalon Balloon System typically takes less than 10 minutes per balloon and does not require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then your physician inflates the balloon. In the clinical study after placement, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime.

How are the balloons removed?

At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure which is performed under light, conscious sedation.

How large is the Obalon 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 3 balloons have a combined volume of 750cc.
