Obalon Gastric Balloon

Those looking for a non-surgical option to help them lose weight may be viable candidates to receive an Obalon gastric balloon. Our Las Vegas team will provide a full evaluation to ensure this path will work for you.

What Is a Gastric Balloon?

With this weight loss procedure, balloons are inserted into your stomach and inflated to reduce the stomach’s capacity. While traditional intragastric balloons required more invasive techniques, the Obalon system is a swallowable capsule. Once in your stomach, your doctor will inflate the balloons. The process should only take about 10 minutes. It’s an outpatient procedure that requires no hospital stay.

For the best results, three balloons are inserted and inflated over a three-month period. This slow integration allows the gastric balloon doctor to monitor the patient’s response to the treatment and aid in progressive weight loss.

How Will a Gastric Balloon Help Me Lose Weight?

Each balloon will take up space in your stomach, making it more difficult to overeat. Although this system will help you feel fuller faster, you’ll need to commit to a healthy diet and exercise to see the results you desire.

The Obalon gastric balloon is a good option for candidates who may not qualify for gastric bypass or gastric sleeve or who may wish to try a non-surgical procedure to assist with weight loss. At ALGSN, we’ll provide a full evaluation to ensure this option is the most suitable for your current health and weight loss goals.
