How does it work?
Previously known as the ‘Elipse Balloon’, the Allurion Balloon fills you up to reduce your hunger while you learn healthy new eating habits.
The Allurion Balloon is a weight-loss balloon provided as a swallowable pill, which is turned into a gastric balloon in your stomach by a healthcare professional. It is the only gastric balloon that doesn’t require endoscopy* or anesthesia for its placement and removal. The total procedure takes less than 20 minutes!
Once in your stomach and inflated, the alurion balloon pill works by filling you up, so you’re less hungry – which makes it easier to eat better, eat less, and form habits that last. You will also receive dedicated nutritional support and the Allurion Connected Scale, Allurion Health Tracker, and Allurion Mobile App to guide your weight-loss journey and share your success.
What happens to the Allurion Balloon?
After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon will naturally deflate and pass through your digestive system*. By the time the balloon passes, you’ve developed new food preferences, adjusted to smaller portion sizes, and developed a new understanding of your body. That leads to real, maintainable long-lasting results, not endless diet yo-yo-ing.
Allurion Weight-Loss Balloon
The Shape and Structure
The liquid-filled malleable structure sits comfortably in the stomach, enabling it to adapt to your body.
The Release Valve
The single-knot release valve degrades and opens at approximately 16 weeks. The liquid empties and the empty balloon passes naturally*. The entire process takes place internally in the balloon, not being affected by the stomach acid environment.
The Balloon is thin, smooth, and flexible which allows it to safely pass through the digestive system – meaning it does not require endoscopic removal*.
Studies prove that 80% of total weight loss of 6-month balloons occurs in the first 3 months of treatment¹². This is why the Allurion Balloon lasts approximately 4 months!
Studies prove that the Allurion Balloon can be safely and successfully swallowed, filled, imaged,, and passed, to effectively aid in maximum weight loss and potentially minimized side effects⁷. The Allurion Balloon is designed to hold 550ml in volume.
