Allurion Gastric Balloon is the latest weight loss method. Unlike all other weight loss operations, Allurion Gastric Balloon does not require any anesthesia or endoscopy for placement.
Allurion Gastric Balloon is the first non-surgical method to lose weight in the world. It comes in the form of a pill balloon capsule that is swallowed under the surveillance and guidance of a qualified health professional.
The concept in this method is similar to the one of the normal gastric balloon, but without endoscopy. Once swallowed, the Allurion balloon is inflated inside the stomach and gives the patient the feeling of getting full more easily, which helps accelerate the weight loss journey. In other words, since the patients will start feeling constantly full, they will be eating smaller portions and therefore they will be able to lose weight more quickly.
The Allurion gastric balloon is a safe and non-permanent solution that helps people lose up to 10% -15% of their body weight. The balloon stays in the stomach approximately 16 weeks, however, the results can last a lifetime if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle.
