How does it work?

Swallow the Allurion Balloon in a capsule, under the guidance of our doctor without anesthesia or endoscopy. The Balloon is inflated in your stomach, checked using a quick x-ray and you’ll be on your way!

 

The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. You will also be supported by the Allurion Connected Scale, Health Tracker, and App.

What happens to the Allurion Balloon?

During your Balloon journey, you and our healthcare team will focus on your relationship with food, goals and education to help you achieve the best weight-loss results for you, and to set you up for weight loss maintenance after the Balloon has gone. After approximately 16 weeks, the Balloon will naturally deflate and pass through your digestive system.
