The Orbera 365 12 month gastric balloon UK is one of the most popular gastric balloons available, and Allure Weightloss have 5 clinics across the UK dedicated to ensuring placements and removals go as well as possible. It also means that our patients can choose the location that is as close to home as possible, making their journey home easier and more convenient.
How Does the 12 Month Gastric Balloon UK Work?
The 12 Month Gastric Balloon UK is placed and removed endoscopically with the help of a light sedation. Whilst in your stomach it will occupy around 60% of your stomach and repress the hunger hormone ghrelin, meaning you can stay feeling fuller for longer. With the balloon in your stomach, you will also be working with one of our HCPC registered dietitians in order to ensure you have the necessary tools to not only be compliant with the programme but also ensure long-term weight loss success.
What Could an Orbera 365 Expect?
Our website extensively covers what all our patients could expect during their time with a gastric balloon. When it comes to the Orbera 365 a patient can typically expect a weight loss of 10 – 17% of their overall bodyweight. They will also be put on a carefully monitored diet for the first 3 weeks in order to ensure that the body is able to adjust to the balloon. The Orbera 365 is made from silicone, and is a sophisticated weight loss tool, not a solution.

Alternative Gastric Balloons
The Allurion Balloon is a swallowable gastric balloon available across ten of our facilities and does not require an endoscopy or sedation at placement or removal. Of course, this is a key factor in many people’s decision, but there are benefits and drawbacks to both, often depending on how you look on it. There are, indeed, medical reasons behind why you may or may not choose one balloon over another, and our team of specialists will be on hand to make sure that you are well informed in order to make the best decision for you.
