Obalon Swallowable Weight Loss Device System Now Available at Liberman Advanced Surgical
Are you struggling to lose weight? Are you frustrated because diet and exercise alone are not working for you? If you have the will to lose weight, but not the way, we have another treatment option for you to consider. The Obalon Balloon System is the FIRST and ONLY swallowable, non-surgical, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. With the Obalon Balloon System, we have a treatment option for adult patients, 30 to 100 pounds overweight, who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise.
Placement of the balloons typically takes less than 10 minutes each and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the balloon is inflated. In the clinical study, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime. Three (3) lightweight, buoyant balloons are placed gradually over 3 months to maximize patient tolerability and facilitate progressive weight loss throughout the 6-month treatment period. At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure which is performed under light, conscious sedation.
In a large clinical study, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to help adults experience clinically meaningful weight loss. Patients lost twice as much weight as diet and exercise alone. Six months afterthe balloons were removed, 89% of the weight lost was kept off, when combined with diet and exercise.
We are one of the first practices in the area to carry the Obalon Balloon System, so if you are struggling with weight loss call us today. The Obalon Balloon System is not for everyone so come in for a consultation to see if Obalon may be right for you.
In the clinical trial, the majority of adverse events were reported as mild and consisted of abdominal pain and nausea which typically resolve within two weeks (serious side effects were less than 0.3%).
