Ten Allurion Balloon Clinics in the UK

Allure Weightloss are specialist providers of the Allurion Swallowable Gastric Balloon in the UK, and as such have ten (and counting) Allurion Balloon clinics across England and Wales that are dedicated to ensuring patients have the convenience of a location that is as close to home as possible. From the North of England, to the Midlands, to South Wales, and with THREE clinics across the London area, we can help you to find the nearest location.

How Does the Allurion Balloon Work?

Like all gastric balloons, the function of the Allurion Balloon is to stave off hunger by occupying 60% of a patient’s stomach and suppressing the hunger hormone ghrelin. The Allurion Balloon differs notably from its counterparts in that it does NOT require an endoscopy or sedation to place. The Swallowable Gastric Balloon is, in fact, swallowable, and requires little more than a glass of water (and stylet if the patient is struggling to swallow it) to place. Once in the fundus, the consultant will take an xray to check it is in the right place, after which inflation will begin. Once inflated, another xray will be taken to ensure it has done so correctly.

How Much Weight Could I Lose?

With the Allurion Balloon, patients can expect to lose 10 – 15% of their overall body weight on average in around a 16 week period. 50% of that weight loss (as with any gastric balloon) occurs within the first month! We like to let patients know that their weight loss at the end of month one is a great indicator of how they are going to do at the end of the programme. Maximum weight loss is dependent on compliance with the overall gastric balloon programme, which includes regular meetings with our HCPC registered dietitian. All of our gastric balloon programmes include this bespoke, celebrated aftercare.

Other Gastric Balloon Options

Allure Weightloss is also a proud provider of the ORBERA 365 12 month gastric balloon UK programme. The Orbera 365 requires an endoscopy and light sedation to place and remove, and can be in the stomach for up to 12 months! Average weight loss expectations with the 12 month gastric balloon UK are a little higher at 10 – 17%.
