HELPS JUMP-START LONG TERM WEIGHT LOSS
The Obalon Balloon System is a swallowable intragastric balloon system indicated for temporary use to facilitate weight loss in adults with obesity (BMI of 30 – 40 kg/m2) who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. The System is intended to be used as an adjunct to a moderate intensity diet and behavior modification program. All balloons must be removed 6 months after the first balloon is placed.
What makes Obalon Different
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.¹
HELPS SUPPORT LONG LASTING RESULTS:
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.¹
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.
