Our Gastric Balloon Clinics are central to operations at Allure Weightloss, ensuring patients are able to make the most of our facilities and expertise as close to home as possible. Gastric balloons enable our patients to utilise an alternative to bariatric surgeries such as the roux-en-y bypass or gastric sleeve. Balloons work by temporarily occupying around 60% of the stomach, delaying gastric emptying, and repressing the hunger hormone known as ghrelin. Combined, the balloon reduces the overall feeling of hunger, and allows patients to change their habits over a 4, 6, or 12 month period, in order to maintain long-term success. Known to effectively reduce the comorbidities associated with obesity, this tool is fantastic for those looking to start, boost, or encourage their weight loss journeys to a healthier and more confident self.
Where are Our Gastric Balloon Clinics?
We have several balloon clinics across England and Wales, each independently registered, handpicked for their dedication to quality patient care and services. The clinic you choose to visit may depend on a few factors, including which balloon you ultimately elect, availability, and proximity to yourself. You can find our full list of gastric balloon clinics online here.
Our GMC Registered Consultants
Allure make use of only the best consultants available across England and Wales in order that our patients can make the most of their knowledge, experience, and expertise. Consultants operate in certain clinics, and you can find their bios online here. GMC registered, our consultants enable us to provide the best services possible.
Gastric Balloon Options
There are two distinct options, the Allurion Balloon and the Orbera 365. Whilst the Allurion Balloon is swallowable, designed to deflate and pass naturally at around 4 months, the Orbera 365 is a 12 month gastric balloon that requires an endoscopy at placement and removal. Average expected weight loss for the Allurion is 10 – 15%, and 10 – 17% with the Orbera.
