The Swallowable Allurion Balloon is the world's first and only gastric balloon without the need for surgery, endoscopy* or anaesthesia for balloon placement and removal. The balloon is swallowed as a capsule during a 15-minute placement which means less downtime or time off work for our patients.
In the hands of experts, the gastric balloon is a very safe and effective procedure and serious complications are uncommon. Patients lose about 10-25 kg on average, but people who start at a higher weight may lose more than that. It is depending on the type of balloon.
Clinical studies have shown that on average individuals who use the Allurion gastric balloon can lose between 10-15% of their total body weight, which can be equivalent to about 10-30 pounds or 4.5-14 kg during the 16-week period that the balloon is in place.
