How the Obalon Balloon Works
The Obalon Balloon System includes a small capsule attached to a slender tube. You simply swallow the capsule, and follow it with a glass of water. No sedation is required. Gas is used to inflate the balloon, and the tube is removed. Once in place, the lightweight balloon resides in your stomach so you eat less. Three balloons should be placed to continue to facilitate weight loss over the 6-month treatment. At the end of this period, the balloons are removed in a short endoscopic procedure.
In a clinical study patients with the Obalon balloon system and diet and exercise lost approximately twice as much weight than those who did diet and exercise alone. The Obalon Balloon System was also shown to help change your eating habits and keep weight loss long-term.
