The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and doesn't require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon, and then your physician inflates the balloon. After six months, all three balloons are removed in one procedure with light sedation. The removal procedure is typically no longer than 15 minutes.

OBALON HELPS SUPPORT LONG-LASTING RESULTS

An average of 89% of weight lost in the Obalon Clinical Study was kept off at 1 year (6 months post-removal), when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.

Lifestyle Modification

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.
