What Exactly is the Obalon Balloon?
The Obalon Balloon System is the very first and only swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss.
The non-surgical treatment will be comprised of three lightweight balloons. These balloons are placed gradually over a period of three months.
The Obalon balloons will occupy space in a person’s stomach. This allows for a person to eat less, making weight loss easier.
Of note, the Obalon Balloon System is a 6-month treatment.
