The FIRST and ONLY swallowable, FDA-approved 3-balloon system for weight loss.
The Obalon Balloon System is a swallowable intragastric balloon system indicated for temporary use to facilitate weight loss in adults with obesity (BMI of 30 – 40 kg/m2) 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. All balloons must be removed 6 months after the first balloon is placed.

DURING FIRST VISIT
During the first consultation, an Obalon-trained physician takes your medical history, examines your current health condition, and performs necessary medical tests. Discuss your expectations and desired results to make sure your physician can determine if you are the right candidate for the Obalon Balloon System.
The Obalon Balloon System can assist with your weight loss efforts, but your weight loss success is also dependent on your readiness to develop new lifestyle skills. The degree of long-term weight loss will depend on your ability to modify your lifestyle and maintain this behavior after the balloons are removed. It is important that you discuss your willingness to accept this commitment with your physician before undergoing the Obalon Balloon System treatment.
In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule approximately the size of a vitamin pill, attached to a micro-catheter.
Using an X-ray, your physician confirms that the capsule is safely in your stomach.
As the capsule dissolves, the balloon is inflated with gas.
The micro-catheter is removed quickly and smoothly.
With your physician’s OK, you're all set and can go back to your daily activities.
