What is the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss?

You’re likely familiar with the feeling of overeating: your pants are tight, you feel “stuffed,” and the thought of putting one more bite in your mouth is inconceivable.

The Obalon procedure for weight loss works a lot like Thanksgiving dinner or an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet does. The Obalon weight loss system helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less.

Three balloons are placed for a six-month, non-surgical treatment. This is combined with a professionally supervised nutrition and exercise program for optimal weight loss. With balloons taking up space in your stomach, you feel full quicker and eat less.

The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the doctor will inflate the balloon. In the clinical study after placement. Most patients return to normal activities with no downtime.
