Obalon weight loss balloon launched

Spire Manchester Hospital is one of the first hospitals in the UK to offer Obalon, a brand new weight loss treatment in the UK.

Obalon is a brand new weight loss treatment in the UK. This innovative treatment, which is available to those with a BMI of 27 or greater, is discreet and non-invasive and can be administered quickly and painlessly in as little as 30 minutes.

Obalon is the first swallowable gastric balloon, which once in the stomach is inflated to the size of an apple. The Obalon balloon works by making you feel fuller faster, and by following a healthy, balanced diet at the same time,  assists you in achieving the best possible weight loss results.

How is Obalon different to other weight loss procedures?
Obalon is a  customisable weight loss system, that can be tailored to meet the individual needs of patients, with up to three Obalon balloons being able to be in the stomach at one time for maximum weight reduction.

While everybody loses weight at slightly different rates, most people find that two balloons give them the best result. Your consultant will discuss this with you, and should you need fewer or indeed more balloons to optimise your weight loss, this will be discussed with you.

Obalon is available at a fixed price of £2,995 for a two balloon treatment or £1995 for one balloon treatment.
