The Obalon Difference

  • completely non-surgical

Clinically-assisted diet and exercise programs are essential to the success of this treatment. Throughout the process, our staff provides support so that healthy diet and exercise habits become part of your new lifestyle.

How it Works

The process is simple and painless.

  1. You swallow a small capsule, which contains the balloon.
  2. The balloon releases, we fill it with gas, and it inflates in your stomach.
  3. The procedure takes 10 minutes, and you can resume normal daily activities right away.
  4. After installing the first balloon, many patients have a second and third balloon implanted. The total treatment course is 6 months.
  5. At the end of the 6-month treatment period, we deflate the balloons and remove them.

To maintain your weight loss over a long period of time, healthy diet and exercise choices must continue.

89.6% of the weight loss is maintained 6 months after the balloon is removed.**

Long-Term Results

Results vary depending on your age, health, and the amount of weight you have to lose. But in general, and for most patients, you can expect the following:

The procedure is short and requires no downtime.

  • no anesthesia
  • no required recovery period
  • the entire process takes approximately 10 minutes.

You will see lasting weight loss.

One year after treatment, patients who have used the Obalon Swallowable Weight Loss Capsule reported a nearly 90% weight-loss maintenance.**

We’ll support you along the way.

We will provide ongoing nutritional and exercise support while the balloon remains installed. We will help to guide you to the best dietary and exercise choices and track your progress.

Your health will improve.

  • reduction in blood pressure
  • improved cholesterol levels
  • increase in energy levels
  • improvement in sleep quality
  • reduced stress
  • enhanced mood.

These improvements are proportionate to the quality of your diet and exercise program post procedure. **
