What is Obalon®?
Obalon® is the first and only swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss.
How does Obalon® work?
The Obalon® Balloon System is a swallowable intragastric balloon system indicated for temporary use to facilitate weight loss in adults 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. The placement of each balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and requires no surgery or sedation. All balloons must be removed 6 months after the first balloon is placed.
How long do the results last?
Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off six months after balloons were removed, when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
What kind of results should I expect?
Patients with the Obalon® Balloon System combined with diet & exercise lost approximately twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.
