Obalon, the first and only swallowable weight loss device
The Obalon Balloon System is lightweight and occupies space in your stomach. Because you have less space in your stomach, you eat less. A short endoscopic procedure is used for removal.
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.
