Allure Weightloss routinely offer two distinct gastric balloons to patients across the United Kingdom, including the Allurion Balloon and the Orbera 365 12 month gastric balloon. Both gastric balloons are designed to facilitate weight loss by supressing feelings of hunger. They do this by occupying around 60% of the stomach, reducing the production of the hunger hormone (ghrelin) and even delaying gastric emptying. Due to this, proper management of diet, and willingness to adapt to the necessary lifestyle changes for long-term success, patients experience an average weight loss of 10 – 15% with the Allurion Balloon and 10 – 18% with the Orbera 365.
Gastric balloons, apposed to bariatric surgery, are designed to be temporary weight loss tools placed to tackle long-term struggles with obesity. The Allurion Balloon, which is placed via a swallowable capsule, deflates and ‘passes naturally’ at around 16 weeks. The Orbera 365, on the other hand, is FDA approved to be placed for up to 12 months. An Orbera patient, however, can elect to have the device removed at any point within said 12 month period.
