What is the Obalon Balloon System?

If you are hoping to lose weight but do not want the stress and cost of surgery, the non-surgical Obalon Balloon system may be the answer for you. This system can help you lose weight with results comparable to that of surgeries, but it is significantly less expensive and requires no down time as surgery does. Its function is relatively simple: it involves introducing three inflated balloons, each one the size of a small orange, into your stomach. These balloons take up space and make it so you cannot eat as much as usual. Below, we will go over what is involved in this system as well as the cost breakdown of the procedure.


How Does the Obalon Balloon System Work?

The Obalon balloon cost does not just cover one procedure. Before you begin the program, you must consult with your physician to determine whether you are a good candidate for the therapy. Some of the more general criteria for receiving the therapy include the following:

  • You must have a BMI between 30 and 40.
  • You must not have had prior weight loss surgery.
  • You must be willing to follow a diet and exercise program.

The Obalon Balloon for Obesity

The Obalon Balloon for obesity is a program that combines an innovative, non-surgical procedure with physician-supervised diet and exercise programs for long-term weight loss and health. The procedure involves the gradual placement of three balloons over three months. The balloons come in the form of small capsules with catheters attached. For each placement, you will swallow a capsule like you would a vitamin. Your doctor will then inflate the capsule to the size of a small orange.

The doctor will use the catheter to inflate the balloon and then remove the catheter. The balloon will remain in your stomach until all three balloons are removed six months after the placement of the first one. These balloons take up space in your stomach, so you will feel more full and will also not be physically able to overeat.
