Swallow Your Way to Summer Weight Loss with the Obalon Gastric Balloon!

Don’t waste this perfect opportunity! Many people only think about getting in shape before summer – and completely miss the amazing opportunity to lose weight once the season is in full swing. We’re here to change that mindset with the Obalon gastric balloon. This revolutionary tool is designed to help people adopt healthier habits to lose weight and all year-round – with a special rebate if you start this summer!

What is Obalon?

Obalon is the first and only swallowable gastric balloon with FDA-approval. This unique system consists of three gas-filled balloons that are designed to safely take up space in the stomach, helping patients feel full after eating smaller portions.

The procedure itself requires no surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. That means, if you want, you can go back to work right after getting the balloon without derailing your day. Obalon created their procedure this way to maximize patient safety and convenience. Patients simply swallow the Obalon capsule, their physician inflates it, and the whole procedure is done in 10 minutes! For patients receiving more than one balloon, each is placed in its own outpatient procedure, 2 weeks apart.

After 6 months, the balloons are deflated and removed from the stomach in another quick, outpatient procedure.

The benefits of gastric balloons

The Obalon 3-balloon system comfortably and safely fills space in the stomach, aiding weight-loss efforts by helping patients feel full on less food. Obalon offers several advantages unique to its design – it is the only gas-filled gastric balloon, which makes it lighter, helps it rest comfortable in the stomach, and minimizes the nausea some balloon patients feel.

The Obalon procedure is tailored to every patient’s individual needs. Patients have between 1 and 3 balloons placed, depending on their starting weight and how much they want to lose. This ensures the best experience and individualized care for every Obalon patient.

The Obalon procedure includes so much more than just their revolutionary, swallowable gastric balloon – you also gain the support you need to adopt and maintain healthier habits. Patients grow accustomed to eating smaller portions and becoming more active. Why? Because Obalon is designed to boost the effects of diet and exercise. In fact, patients in a clinical trial lost twice as much weight as with diet and exercise alone!

Patients who don’t qualify for surgery – or just don’t want it – love the non-invasive nature of Obalon. The procedure takes mere minutes and doesn’t interrupt their lives. Don’t believe us? Just listen to our patient Cheryl talk about her gastric balloon!

Now’s the perfect time to choose Obalon!

The Obalon Weight-Loss Challenge

The Obalon Weight-Loss Challenge has been extended through August 31st, 2018, where patients can qualify for rebates of up to $1500 just for losing weight! Anyone who schedule their procedure before the deadline receives a $500 rebate right away. They can get two additional $500 mail-in rebates by losing 25+ and 40+ pounds with the Obalon balloon.

This is the best opportunity to arm yourself with healthy habits for long-term weight loss while taking advantage of an amazing deal.

Why summer is the best time to get the Obalon balloon system

Summer’s a time for fun and relaxation – who says losing weight has to get in the way of that?
One perk of the Obalon balloon system is that it helps patients live healthier without disrupting their lives. Their device helps you develop healthy habits that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. The focus is on helping people make smarter decisions without limiting them by restricting their diets or changing their anatomy.

While surgery takes time and can require a lengthy recovery period, gastric balloons are inserted in outpatient settings, meaning there are no needles, incisions, or downtime to worry about. Most patients even go back to work the very same day! You can return to your hobbies and exercise routine right away, as the balloon doesn’t impact your ability to be active.
With Obalon, you can still exercise, work, and live your life. You can enjoy your summer exactly as you normally would while losing weight, learning to take care of your body, and setting yourself up for long-term success!

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin.
