Choosing which gastric balloon to have placed can be tricky, and there is certainly a lot for one to consider. In this blog, we will be focussing on the Orbera 365, placed over 400,000 times worldwide. FDA approved, this particular balloon lasts up to 12 months in the stomach and facilitates an average weight loss of around 10 – 17% of a patients total body weight.
Orbera 365 Placement Centres
If you are interested in having the 12 month gastric balloon UK placed, our independently registered clinics across England and Wales are here for you. Specifically, you can find our Orbera clinics in Orpington, Watford, Newport, Tamworth, Derby, Leeds, and Manchester. At any one of our clinics, patients can expect the highest levels of care from our GMC registered Consultants.
The Orbera differs significantly to the Allurion mainly in its application. The Allurion Balloon is designed to be swallowed via a capsule and then deflate and pass naturally at around 16 weeks. On the other hand, the Orbera requires an endoscopy at placement and removal. Weight loss expectations for the Allurion Balloon are 10 – 15% of total body weight on average. Moreover, the Allurion is made from polyurethane rather than silicone. Like the Orbera 365, this balloon is also supported by registered Nurses and Dietitians.
Celebrated Gastric Balloon Aftercare
Accompanying all of our gastric balloon programmes is a celebrated aftercare pathway that includes the support of registered Nurses and HCPC registered Dietitians. Our 1 -1 support during your weight loss journey ensures that you can find the answers you need from a qualified individual, and not just an app or website.
If you are looking for a permanent weight loss procedure, bariatric surgery could be the best option. At Allure Weightloss we utilise top bariatric consultants in order to perform the roux-en-y gastric bypass and gastric sleeve across our UK clinics. Unlike gastric balloons which require a minimum BMI of 27, to be eligible for bariatric surgery a patient needs a minimum BMI of at least 35 unless otherwise specified by our specialists due to certain comorbidities.
