What is a Gastric Balloon Programme?

Gastric balloon programmes are a fantastic non-surgical alternative for those still interested in seeking help via medical weight loss. The gastric balloon is a medical device developed to help patients feel fuller for a longer and support them to make long-lasting habit changes and better decisions for their health. Specifically, the gastric balloon tool works by occupying around 60% of the stomach, delaying gastric emptying, and reducing production of the hunger hormone, ghrelin.

With Allure, all gastric balloon placements are completed by a programme complete with Nurse and Dietetic Support.

The Orbera 365 (up to 12 Months)

The Orbera 365 is the only FDA approved gastric balloon approved to be in the stomach for up to 12 months. Patients will undergo an endoscopy at patient and removal, supported by a light sedation in order to make them more comfortable. Patients can typically expect an average total body weight loss of around 10 – 18%.
