During treatment you should receive professional nutrition and exercise support to help you make the lifestyle changes that facilitate weight loss. The Obalon Balloon System supports you to help change your eating habits and keep the weight off for the long-term.
How is Obalon done?
Placement of the Obalon Balloon System typically takes less than 10 minutes per balloon and does not require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then your physician inflates the balloon. In the clinical study after placement, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime.
How is the balloon removed?
At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure which is performed under light, conscious sedation.
