The Non-Surgical, FDA Approved, Gastric Balloon
The Obalon Gastric Balloon 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, combined with a professionally supervised nutrition and exercise program for optimal weight loss. The balloons are then removed in 6 months or less.
An average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at 1 year (6 months post-removal), when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.

Our weight loss options are not for the casual dieter. There are several requirements that you will need to meet in order to be considered. Let us guide you through this process in a simple fashion. First, we need to know your height and weight. This will allow us to Calculate your Body Mass Index. BMI is an indicator used globally to indicate a healthy weight. Learn more about Body Mass Index
The placement of each gastric balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and doesn't require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon, and then one of our physicians will inflate the balloon.
Up to 3 balloons can be placed, one balloon per visit.
A fully inflated single gastric balloon has a volume of 250cc, weighing approximately 3 grams (less than a penny) and about the size of a small orange. Therefore, all three gastric balloons have a combined volume of 750cc.
