How to Lose Weight with the Allurion Gastric Pill Balloon Program?

Updated on 14 October 2022

​​The Allurion Gastric Pill Balloon program (previously known as the Elipse Gastric Balloon) is a popular way for people to reduce weight. With the help of this program, you will be suggested to start living a healthy life and eating a balanced diet to maintain your normal body weight. The program is safe and involves no surgery, no anesthesia, or endoscopy. Moreover, you can connect to your healthcare team from the top hospitals for bariatric surgery, get support, and track your achievements in losing weight during this program.

Details of Allurion Weight Loss Program

It is a six-month weight loss program that helps change your mindset towards eating to maintain weight loss and achieve long-term health benefits.

The Process - How it Works?

  • The procedure is very different from the bariatric surgery in Hyderabad. This process starts with the doctor placing a balloon inside your stomach when you visit for a consultation. For this, they will give you a vegetable-based pill to swallow that will contain a deflated balloon attached to a thin tube.

  • The doctor will first take an X-ray to make sure that the pill is in your stomach before filling the balloon. No anesthesia is given, or endoscopy is done during the procedure.

  • The doctor will fill the balloon using the tube with the fluids once it reaches the stomach.
  • The X-ray will be done to ensure that the balloon is filled completely inside the stomach.

  • The tube will be removed slowly, and the process will be over.

The balloon that is used in the program is called the Allurion Gastric Balloon. This balloon is filled with 550 ml of propierty fluid. It excites a feeling of satiety (fullness) that further reduces your appetite while being in your stomach. After four weeks, the balloon will deflate naturally and pass out of your body.

You will be provided with the Allurion connected scale, the Allurion app, and an Allurion health tracker to track your weight loss progress. You must share your progress with your doctor and get advice for further lifestyle and nutrition. You will continue the lifestyle modification and dietary modifications for six months to lose weight. Weight loss can be maintained with a one-year follow-up afterwards.

The Allurion Gastric balloon is the central aspect of the weight loss program, but the program also provides you with a complete diet chart and advice regarding eating habits and lifestyle changes. The program will help develop a healthier lifestyle and eating patterns.

Are there any after-effects of the Allurion Gastric Ballon?

The process is usually safe, but there can be some symptoms after placing the balloon, including occasional vomiting, nausea, and abdominal cramps. However, the doctor will prescribe the medications to manage the symptoms if any.

How Does the Allurion Scale Help?

The Allurion scale helps to monitor the entire process safely. It is important to know your Body Mass Index (BMI) to know the progress of losing weight, and the scale helps you in determining the BMI for constant track of progress.

How does the Allurion Smartwatch help?

When you have to monitor weight loss, you must check your physical activity and sleep behavior. With the assistance of the Allurion smartwatch, it becomes easier to track your physical activity and sleep behavior. The watch helps you to know how your physical activity and sleep are affecting your weight loss program, giving you a better understanding of the program.

 

Allurion Mobile App

You can securely monitor your body's health stats by using the Allurion smart scale and Allurion smartwatch in sync with the Allurion Mobile application. It can help your doctor access information about you during the process of losing weight. They can give you some tips and information and will keep you motivated. You can see your progress on your mobile phone and can share the same with your doctor from time to time for better management.

Conclusion

It is a safe and effective program that helps you lose around 10–15% of your body weight in four weeks. As the balloon passes out of your body, you get to develop new food choices, adjust to small food diets, and start to understand the needs of your body. This helps you maintain efficient weight-loss habits to get long-lasting results.
