The Allurion program is based on a revolutionary gastric balloon that produces a feeling of satiety. The Allurion Ingestible Balloon has been designed to help you reduce food intake by taking up space in your stomach.
The patient swallows a capsule containing the balloon attached to a thin tube. An x-ray is done to make sure the capsule is in the stomach before it is filled
Once in the stomach, the doctor uses the tube to fill the balloon with fluid. Another x-ray is done to confirm that the balloon is completely filled in the stomach. The doctor carefully removes the tube and the patient is ready. With the ball, you will eat less without feeling hungry
About 16 weeks after placement, the Allurion Ingestible Balloon empties and passes on its own
The Allurion Ellipse Ball is a new way to lose weight. It does not require surgery endoscopy* or anesthesia.The balloon is swallowed in a short process 15-minute outpatient about 16 weeks afterwards, it empties and eliminates naturally. It is a comfortable and safe way to start leading a healthier lifestyle. On average, patients lose 10-15% of body weight thanks to the Allurion Program.
