The Obalon Balloon Capsule System

The unique weight management solution designed to fit your lifestyle. No surgery, no downtime – only results.

Take control of your weight with the proven-effective Obalon Balloon Capsule, the only non-surgical gastric balloon approved by the FDA. This revolutionary new clinical process helps people lose weight safely and consistently.

The Obalon Balloon Capsule is an innovative, FDA-approved, non-surgical weight loss option for people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 and higher. This weight loss treatment has been shown to facilitate significant weight loss when used with a clinically-supervised nutrition and exercise program.

The Obalon Balloon Capsule Difference

Unlike other bariatric procedures, the Obalon Balloon Capsule is a totally non-surgical treatment program requiring no general anesthesia. Typical installation time is under 10 minutes.

The Obalon Balloon Capsule is a revolutionary solution for patients who struggle to achieve significant weight loss but who are not looking for surgical alternatives. The balloon doesn’t require unconscious sedation, and it is performed as an outpatient procedure. It is installed by swallowing a capsule, which is inflated with a proprietary nitrogen gas through a micro-catheter. The balloons are designed to remain in an inflated state for the duration of the 6-month treatment period.

The balloons inflate to approximately the size of an orange, and weigh only 6 grams. They remain suspended at the top of the stomach, giving the patient a feeling of satiety, so less food is consumed throughout the day.

The Obalon Balloon Capsule offers continual weight loss support – both while the balloons are installed and after they are extracted. The process is precisely engineered to maximize safe, long-term weight management without any surgical intervention or permanent modifications of the digestive system. During clinical trials, patients lost an average of 15lbs, with some losing as much as 50lbs, during a 12-week treatment program – approximately 7 % of their total body weight. Furthermore, after one year, patients reported that nearly 90 % of their weight loss was maintained.

Is the Obalon Balloon Capsule Right for Me?

The Obalon Balloon Capsule is recommended for patients with a BMI of 30 or higher, who have not previously undergone a bariatric surgery procedure of any kind, and who have never been diagnosed with eating disorders. The Obalon Balloon Capsule is not recommended for people who have a history of functional or structural disorders of the stomach, pregnant or lactating women, or people with a history of drug or alcohol dependency.
