How Obalon Works
The Obalon Balloon System will not “make” you lose weight. Instead, it is a tool that allows you to benefit more from the work you do at eating better and moving more. In studies, people who had Obalon Balloon System lost about twice as much weight than those who tried diet and exercise alone.
During your 6 months with the Obalon balloons, it’s important to work on portion size, choosing lean proteins and enough fruit and vegetables, and staying hydrated. You’ll work with our team to learn the best ways you can adapt your lifestyle to benefit the most from the balloon system.
After your 6 months with the balloons in place, all the balloons will be removed at the same time in a single doctor’s visit. During this visit you’ll be lightly sedated while the doctor deflates each balloon and removes it from your stomach using a thin tube that’s placed down your throat.
