Gastric Balloon Proven Weight Loss Without Surgery*
Gastric Balloons are effective weight loss tools that help people lose weight and encourage better dietary habits.¹ The procedure is nonsurgical and minimally invasive, requiring little to no downtime. Gastric balloons help kickstart long term weight loss and have been shown to help patients lose up to 2x more weight than diet and exercise alone.¹
What Are Gastric Balloons?
Gastric Balloons are soft silicone balloons that are swallowed, or inserted into the stomach endoscopically, while deflated. They are then inflated with sterile saline solution to fill up space in the stomach and help patients feel full when eating less. The gastric balloon is designed to help patients control their appetite. Developed as a nonsurgical alternative to traditional weight loss procedures, gastric balloons help patients kickstart weight loss while developing healthier habits. Three gastric balloon options are available, the Obalon® Balloon System, ORBERA® Weight Loss Balloon and ReShape® Dual Balloon.
Obalon® Balloon System
The Obalon Balloon System is a swallowable gastric balloon system developed for patients who have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise. Obalon is a temporary three balloon system designed to be used in conjunction with diet and lifestyle changes that support long term weight loss. Six months after the initial balloon placement all balloons in the system are removed endoscopically. Watch this video to learn how Obalon can help take the weight off.*
Orbera® Gastric Balloon
ORBERA Gastric Balloon is a single balloon managed weight loss system that is effective in treating patients who are moderately overweight.
