The First and Only Swallowable Weight Loss Device Available in the U.S.

Are you struggling to lose weight? Are you frustrated because diet and exercise alone are not working for you? If you have the will to lose weight, but not the way, we have another treatment option for you to consider. The Obalon Balloon System is the FIRST and ONLY swallowable, non-surgical, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. With the Obalon Balloon System, we have a treatment option for adult patients, 30 to 100 pounds overweight, who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise.

Placement of the balloons typically takes less than 10 minutes each and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the balloon is inflated. In the clinical study, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime. Three (3) lightweight, buoyant balloons are placed gradually over 3 months to maximize patient tolerability and facilitate progressive weight loss throughout the 6-month treatment period. At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure which is performed under light, conscious sedation.

 

In a large clinical study, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to help adults experience clinically meaningful weight loss. Patients lost twice as much weight as diet and exercise alone. Six months after the balloons were removed, 89% of the weight lost was kept off, when combined with diet and exercise.

 

We are one of the first practices in the area to carry the Obalon Balloon System, so if you are struggling with weight loss call us today. The Obalon Balloon System is not for everyone so come in for a consultation to see if Obalon may be right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

The Obalon Balloon System is the FIRST and ONLY swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. The non-surgical treatment consists of 3 lightweight balloons, placed gradually over 3 months, occupying space in a patient’s stomach. The Obalon Balloon System facilitates weight loss in adults with obesity (BMI of 30 – 40 kg/m2) who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. The System is intended to be used as an adjunct to a moderate intensity diet and behavior modification program. All balloons must be removed 6 months after the first balloon is placed.
The Obalon Balloon System helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in a patient’s stomach so the patient eats less. During treatment, patients receive professional nutrition and exercise support to help make the lifestyle changes that facilitate weight loss. The Obalon Balloon System provides support to help change eating habits and keep the weight off for the long-term.
The Obalon Balloon System can assist with weight loss efforts, but weight loss success is also dependent on the patient’s readiness to develop new lifestyle skills. The degree of long-term weight loss will depend on the ability to modify lifestyle and maintain this behavior after the balloons are removed. It is important that patients discuss their willingness to accept this commitment with their physician before undergoing the Obalon Balloon System.
Adult men and women are a candidate for the Obalon Balloon System if they are 30 to 100 pounds overweight. The program begins with the placement of the Obalon Balloons in the stomach for up to six months. The program includes a healthy diet and exercise program.
In a large clinical study, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to help adults experience clinically meaningful weight loss. Patients lost twice as much weight as diet and exercise alone. Six months after the balloons were removed, 89% of the weight lost was kept off, when combined with diet and exercise.
The Obalon Balloon treatment is a 6-month treatment. After the first balloon the doctor will usually have patients swallow a second balloon capsule 1 month after the first balloon and a third balloon capsule 2 months after the second balloon. All balloons will be taken out 6 months after the first balloon capsule is swallowed.
Placement of the Obalon Balloon System typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. In a physician’s office, patients swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the physician inflates the balloon. In the clinical study, after placement, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime.
At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure, which is performed under light, conscious sedation.
Three (3) lightweight, buoyant balloons are placed gradually over 3 months to maximize patient tolerability and facilitate progressive weight loss throughout the 6-month treatment period. Optimal weight loss is achieved with 3 balloons. Those treated with 3 balloons lost more than 4x as much weight as those treated with 2 balloons. All balloons must be removed 6 months after the first balloon is placed.
A fully inflated single balloon is about the size of a small orange and weighs approximately 3 grams (about a penny).
Physicians will work closely with patients to help develop healthy eating and exercise habits, such as making the right food choices and appropriate portion sizes. Because the balloons take up space in the stomach, patients will not be able to eat the same quantity of food previously consumed.
The Obalon Balloon System is a safe and effective, FDA-approved, non-surgical weight loss system. In our clinical trial, the majority of adverse events were reported as mild and consisted of abdominal pain and nausea (serious side effects were less than 0.3%). Physicians will discuss more details on the potential side effects, precautions, warnings and other important safety information.
Patients usually resume normal activities immediately after the balloon placement procedure.
It is important that patients listen to the instructions provided by their physician and office staff who are available to assist in weight loss efforts. They will develop a follow-up schedule to further support patients’ weight loss routine. As patients become aware that they are eating less, it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle by making healthy food choices and making exercise a priority.
