Unique Opportunity to Transform Body
Before committing to a weight loss program, it is important to recognize that regardless of what solutions are available, your utmost commitment is an essential ingredient to attaining the figure that you prefer. With advances in medical science and technology, numerous gastroenterologists and physicians have developed new solutions to help patients. One of them is Obalon, the first and only FDA-approved 3-balloon system to help patients targeting weight loss goals.
How does Obalon Help Me?
The Obalon Balloon System is targeted for temporary use to assist adults with a BMI of 30-40 kg/m2 in promoting weight loss and also cannot do so under regular diet and exercise methods. The system complements a consistent schedule of selective dieting and behavioral changes. The balloons will be active for six months, after which, they will be removed.
With Obalon, patients can experience benefits in the form of losing twice as much weight compared to diet and exercise alone. In addition, an average of 89 percent patients experienced weight loss that has lasted for at least six months after the removal of the balloons, especially in conjunction with a diet and exercise program.

Finally, patients experience minimal downtime between the placement of each balloon, which is generally less than 10 minutes and involves no surgery.
