What is the difference between Allurion balloon and other gastric balloons?

The Allurion Balloon is the first and only gastric balloon in the world that does not require surgery, internal endoscopy, or anesthesia for placement or removal processes. The balloon is swallowed in capsule form within 15 minutes. It provides effective weight loss over a short period, making it a successful option compared to endoscopically placed balloons that remain in the body for more than six months, with 80% of weight loss achieved within the first three months. The Allurion Balloon is a safer option with fewer side effects, with a significantly lower intolerance rate compared to endoscopically placed balloons for up to 12 months (1-3% vs. 14.4%) (Reference 2, 3), with 10 times fewer serious side effects than fluid-filled balloons. It is made of plant-based polyurethane material, which is softer and more flexible than the silicone material used in endoscopic balloons—and it bends and adapts to the movement of your stomach, ensuring a comfortable fit. The Allurion Balloon is designed to be naturally excreted after about 16 weeks.

FAQ

Yes! The Allurion Program, a combination of our unique swallowable gastric balloon and a supported lifestyle change program, leads to nearly 2.5 times the weight loss than a lifestyle change program alone, according to an independent study. (superscript 1)

 

In another study, three-quarters of participants who attempted to lose weight over a year through calorie-controlled or restricted diets (72% of participants), exercise programs or courses (22%), and pharmaceutical treatments (12%), did not achieve a clinically meaningful weight loss defined as at least 5% of their body weight. (superscript 2) The evidence shows that these isolated methods alone are not enough.

 

The 6-month Allurion Program combines medical support and a weight-loss device (Allurion Gastric Balloon), digital tools (Allurion Connected Scale, Allurion Health Tracker and Allurion App) and nutritional coaching to kick-start your weight loss and help you form lifelong healthy habits to maintain the weight loss.

No one will know unless you tell people that you had the balloon placed.
After the less than 20-minute placement, you can continue with your life; however, you may have some symptoms for a few days such as nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps. Your healthcare professional will advise you on care and nutrition after placement and the best plan to resume your activities, such as gym and exercise.
The balloon takes place in a less than 20-minute outpatient visit. Allurion 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 a catheter. A second x-ray takes place to ensure the Balloon is filled correctly.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 Balloon can be placed after completing the first program.
Up to 95% of weight-loss may be sustained 12 months after the Balloon exits the body!
No. After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon deflates and passes naturally. In very rare cases, an intervention might be required.
