How Does a Gastric Balloon Work?

Gastric balloons work by occupying around 60% of the stomach, reducing the amount of space available as well as significantly suppressing the production of the hunger hormone (ghrelin). This, along with delayed gastric emptying, allows gastric balloon patients to feel fuller for longer. This ‘break’ from their usually impulses will provide you with the chance to make long-term, lasting, and necessary lifestyle changes for weight loss and maintenance of said weight loss.

At Allure we are proud to supply the Orbera 365 12 month gastric balloon in the UK, as well as the famously swallowable Allurion Balloon. Each balloon is exactly the same in regard to its purpose, but differs in a few key ways regarding the way it is places. The Orbera 365, for example is a gastric balloon that is FDA approved to stay in the stomach for up to 12 months and is placed endoscopically, whereas the Allurion Balloon is designed to be swallowed in the form of a capsule and then pass naturally at roughly four months. Due to these differences eligibility for the procedure does also differ and you should speak to a member of our team to learn more.

Gastric balloons are temporary and non-surgical, meaning you get the benefit of a supported medical weight loss procedure without scarring or incisions.
