gastric balloon weight loss

A Temporary Tool for Long-Term Weight Loss

Many people across the United Kingdom, and indeed the world, struggle with the proper and healthy regulation of their weight. Everyone needs a little support at one point or another, and it is no shame to ask for it. We are, after all, only human. The medical weight loss specialists at Allure are gastric balloon experts in the UK. Along with professional care from a dietitian, the gastric balloon is a temporary weight loss tool that (depending on device) helps people lose between 10 – 17% of their total body weight!

Gastric Balloon Success

How does this work? Well, the gastric balloon takes up around 60% of your stomach and represses the release of ghrelin, the hunger hormone. Along with feeling fuller for longer, patients also work with our HCPC registered Dietitian in order to make lifestyle changes that will support them in the long term. 50% of a patient’s total weight loss typically occurs within the first month.

The gastric balloon programmes available through Allure involve either the 4 month swallowable gastric balloon, otherwise known as the Allurion Balloon, or the Orbera 365 12 month gastric balloon. They differ mainly in application, especially in that the latter requires an endoscopy and sedation to place. It is important to recognise that these balloons are non-surgical and non-permanent. These temporary weight loss devices are important for this reason.

Gastric Balloon Clincs UK

Allure Weightloss run 10 (and counting) gastric balloon clinics across England and Wales. From Dr Nutt in Newport to Dr Loganayagam in Orpington, we are able to provide the highest quality service available to all of our patients. At Allure we always put your health and safety first, ensuring that you are 100% eligible and suitable for the balloon before anything is booked in.

As touched on, patients through Allure are privy to access our HCPC registered Dietitian. Each patient is allocated 6 sessions and more can be provided on request. Alongside our dietitian, patients are also supported by a Nurse as standard. A weight counsellor is also available upon request, at an extra cost.
