Gastric Balloons: Be Satisfied with Less



Battling Obesity? A Gastric Balloon Could Help.

Could gastric balloons be the answer in our search to be satisfied with less? As over 63% of the UK population struggles with obesity and being overweight, this may very well be the case. A gastric balloon is a medical weight loss tool designed to help restrict feelings of hunger so the patient may lose weight and work towards creating lasting habit changes. Gastric balloons are popular as an evidence-based non-surgical option. As with any gastric balloon, 50% of the weight lost is typically achieved within the first month. All balloon placements are completed with a celebrated aftercare service when booked with Allure.

Orbera 365 12 Month Gastric Balloon

The FDA Approved

The Orbera 365 is an FDA approved gastric balloon that can stay in place for a maximum of 12 months before being removed via a simple endoscopic procedure. The Orbera 365 works by occupying around 60% of the stomach, delaying gastric emptying, and reducing production of the hunger hormone known as ghrelin. The typical Orbera patient will loose between 10 – 18% of their total body weight, but it is possible to lose even more. Sarah, for example, lost over 23% of her total body weight with an Orbera placement. You can find all our patient testimonials online.

  • Up to 12 Months of Placement

    The Orbera 365 is FDA approved for 12 months of placement, but can be removed at any point before at no extra charge.

  • Non-Surgical, Quick Placement

    The Orbera 365 does not require surgery for placement or removal, a light sedation and quick endoscopic procedure is all.

  • Dedicated Aftercare

    Our celebrated aftercare programme of nurse and dietetic care is included with all packages, as standard. Real people, no apps.

Allurion 4 Month Gastric Balloon

Famously swallowable, the Allurion Balloon is designed to stay in place for up to around 16 weeks, at which point it is designed to deflate and pass naturally through the stomach. Patients typically experience a weight loss of between 10 – 15% of their total body weight. Just like with the Orbera, an Allurion Balloon works by delaying gastric emptying, reducing production of the hunger hormone known as ghrelin, and occupying 60% of the stomach. The main difference lies at placement, wherein your consultant will encourage you to swallow the balloon in the form of a capsule about the size of a locket. 2 x-rays and 550ml of saline water later, you should be free to return home.

  • 4 Months of Placement*

    The Allurion Balloon is designed to stay in the stomach for around 16 weeks before deflating and passing naturally.*

  • ‘Swallowable’ Gastric Balloon

    The Allurion Balloon can be placed in a 20 – 30 minute procedure.
