Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Allurion Balloon placed?
The placement takes place during a 15-minute outpatient visit. The Allurion Balloon is the first gastric balloon that requires no endoscopy** or anesthesia for placement or removal. Simply swallow a capsule containing the deflated balloon with a catheter: once the balloon is confirmed to be in your stomach via X-ray, the balloon is filled with water through the catheter. A second X-ray is done to ensure the balloon is filled correctly.
Is the Allurion Program better than dieting alone?
Can I return to normal activities after placement?
After the 15-minute placement you can go about your life as usual. However, you may have some side effects for a few days such as nausea. Your healthcare professional will advise you on care and nutrition after placement and the best plan to resume your activities such as going to the gym.
Will it be obvious to others that I have the Allurion Balloon in my stomach?
No. The Allurion Program is a discreet experience. Unless you tell people, no one will know you have had the balloon placed.
How much weight can be lost with the Allurion Program?
After approximately 16 weeks of the Allurion Program, multiple clinical studies have demonstrated that patients lose on average 10-15% of their total body weight.* If you still want to lose more weight, a second Allurion Balloon can be placed after completing the first program where you can expect to lose almost 23% of your total body weight after 12 months.1
Will I put the weight back on?
A temporary balloon does not mean temporary weight loss. Up to 95% of weight loss may be sustained 12 months after the Allurion Balloon exits the body.1
Does a doctor need to remove the balloon?
No. After approximately 16 weeks, the Allurion Balloon deflates and passes out of the body naturally. In very rare cases, an intervention might be required.**
