Lasting Weight Loss Results with Obalon®
In clinical trials, after one year patients kept off an average of 89% of the weight they lost with Obalon treatments. And, while you will lose weight with Obalon alone, people in the clinical trial who combined the balloon system with a moderate diet and exercise program lost twice as much weight!
The placement of an Obalon balloon generally takes less than 10 minutes. You simply swallow a capsule containing the small Obalon balloon, and then Dr. Kowynia inflates it. It is painless, so no sedation is required. Up to 3 balloons may be used for maximum effectiveness.
A fully inflated single balloon only weighs about 3 grams – which is less than a penny. Once inflated, the balloon is about the size of a small orange. The balloon stays in your stomach, filling it up, so you get fuller faster and eat less!
