How the Allurion program works:

Most often, patients resume normal activity immediately after balloon placement.

Some of them may experience nausea, abdominal cramps, and vomit.

However, these symptoms are well controlled with medications prescribed by the doctor.

Patients will lose 10 to 15% of their total body weight on an average period of 4 months.

Patients who wish to lose more weight can place a sequential balloon so that they can lose 22.8% of their initial body weight.

Studies have shown that 95% of the patients were able to maintain weight loss 12 months after balloon elimination.
