The team at Allure Weightloss are pleased to announce our new gastric balloon clinic in Winchester. From our handpicked placement centre in Hampshire, our consultant Mr Anupam Dixit will help patients realise their weight loss goals in a quick 20 – 30 procedure that is an Allurion Balloon placement. The Allurion Balloon itself stays in the stomach for around 16 weeks, at which point it is designed to deflate and ‘pass naturally’. Whilst the gastric balloon is in place the patient will be expected to work alongside the tool in order to achieve maximum results. As with all our facilities, the Winchester Clinic was carefully selected for its dedication to high quality patient care.

What is an Allurion Gastric Balloon?
The Allurion Balloon is famously swallowable, allowing patients that would rather not undergo an endoscopy a chance to utilise a gastric balloon placement in order to lose weight. After a quick 20 – 30 minute procedure, which involves a swallowable capsule, a glass of water, and a couple of x-rays, you will be free to go. This gastric balloon enables patients to lose between 10 and 15% of their total body weight (on average). This weight loss is achieved by the balloon creating a feeling of satiation. That is, the balloon itself will occupy around 60% of the stomach, delay gastric emptying, and suppress the production of the hunger hormone (ghrelin). Thus you are made to feel fuller sooner and for longer.
All gastric balloon placements with Allure Weightloss are completed by our celebrated aftercare programme. This includes nurse care and 1 – 1 dietetic support with a HCPC registered dietitian. It is integral that patients remember the gastric balloon is a weight loss tool, not a solution. They should aim to work with it in order to achieve the best results.
It is essential that each one of our patients is able to make an informed decision. That’s why we pack our website full of informative content, but also why we give prospective patients the opportunity to chat to one of our friendly patient advisors to discuss their options and eligibility.
