The Allurion Gastric Balloon, or simply Allurion Balloon, is a state-of-the-art medical device that helps to alleviate the feeling of hunger. Alongside the gastric balloon, you will work to change your lifestyle in order to maintain weight loss with help from our HCPC registered Dietitian. With the Allurion Balloon you can accurately track your progress with help from the complementary smart watch and scales that we provide during the programme. Patients typically expect to lose 10 – 15% with the Allurion Balloon, however this can be much higher depending on your overall dedication to the Allure Weightloss Programme.
The 4 Month Weight Loss Tool
The elegant medical weight loss device comes in the form of a swallowable gastric balloon pill. You will require one visit to a clinic wherein one of our GMC registered Consultants will oversee the swallowing and filling of the temporary 4 month gastric balloon. A tool for weight loss, the team at Allure are proud to be leading providers of this gastric balloon programme. The Allurion Balloon passes naturally at around the 16 week mark, and often patients find that they don’t even notice this happening.
Safe & Simple
Considered a safe procedure, it is completely non-surgical, and does not require an endoscopy to perform. This makes the Allurion Balloon favourable over bariatric surgeries such as the gastric sleeve or bypass, for example. For the Allurion Balloon in the UK, look no further than the team at Allure Weightloss to help support and drive your goals.
The potential side-effects of the Allurion Gastric Balloon include nausea and cramping in the first few days after placement. It is important to remember that this is completely normal, and symptoms stop once your body has adjusted to the balloon which is occupying around 60% of your stomach. Once your body has adjusted, it is common to not even notice the gastric balloon beyond the speed in which you feel full.
Bespoke Aftercare Programme
Becoming more confident doesn’t happen overnight. After all, no man is an island. It’s no shame to need a little support, or a guiding hand, and the team at Allure Weightloss are here to help. We provide a bespoke aftercare service, complete with HCPC registered Dietitians and access to a Bariatric Nurse. You will meet regularly with your dietitian in order to ensure you have all the knowledge necessary for long-term weight loss maintenance, so that you can have peace of mind once the balloon passes.
