Consulting For Allurion Balloon Procedures Has Commenced.
- Lose an average of 10-15kg over 4 months
- NO Surgery
- NO Endoscopy

How It Works
It's a balloon that is swallowed, therefore no need for surgery. The procedure is administered by the surgeon in a day surgical environment with no need for anaesthetic or endoscopy.
- A capsule that contains the Allurion Balloon is swallowed, with water, performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon using a specialised guided technique
- An X-ray will be done to confirm the placement of the balloon.
- It’s then inflated with liquid which will give you a feeling of fullness and slow done the digestive process.
- 16 weeks AFTER the placement of the Allurion Balloon, the balloon self-empties & passes naturally

FAQs How does the Allurion Balloon get into my stomach?
The balloon is placed in your stomach during a brief 20-minute outpatient visit with your doctor. You will swallow a vegetable-based capsule that contains the deflated balloon. The balloon is connected to a long thin tube. Once the capsule has entered your stomach you will have the first x-ray to confirm the correct position of the capsule. Your doctor will then use the tube to fill the balloon with liquid and then a second x-ray will confirm the balloon is correctly filled. Once the balloon is filled, your doctor will gently remove the tube and you’ll be on your way.
Is the balloon easy to swallow?
Most people can swallow the capsule containing the Elipse Balloon without any problems. However, if you do have difficulty swallowing it, your doctor can use a thin wire (stylet) to help guide the capsule into place – still without endoscopy or anaesthesia.
How much weight will I lose?
People on average lose between 10 and 15kg over four months of balloon therapy.
What is the balloon filled with?
The balloon is filled with 550ml of water.
How long does it take to return to normal activities after placement?
Most people can return to normal activity within a day or two. However, some people do experience nausea, abdominal cramping and, occasionally, vomiting after balloon placement. In most cases, your doctor can prescribe commonly used medication to help manage these symptoms.
How is the balloon removed?
After approximately 16 weeks, a time-activated release valve on the balloon will open, allowing it to empty and pass naturally without any medical intervention when you use the toilet. In rare cases, at the time of passage, the balloon may be vomited.
What happens then?
After your balloon passes, the support from your Team at WLSA continue. This is to help you consolidate your new lifestyle habits and focus on keeping the weight off.
