If you’ve decided to try and lose some weight – whether it’s to feel more comfortable in your clothes or feel better in yourself, it’s good to know that there’s a wealth of advice and options available. At Pall Mall, we understand that kickstarting your weight loss journey can be tough, that’s why we offer the Allurion weight loss balloon – the perfect non-invasive method to kickstart to your weight loss journey.
What is the Allurion weight loss balloon?
The Allurion Balloon is the first gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia for placement or removal. The balloon creates a feeling of fullness, allowing you to eat less without the hunger that accompanies most diets. The food you do eat stays in your stomach longer, reinforcing the feeling of fullness and enabling you to skip snacks between meals. When combined with diet and lifestyle changes, the Allurion Programme can lead to meaningful weight loss: following 16 weeks of therapy, patients lose 15kgs on average.
How does it work?
Our consultant gastroenterologist surgeon Dr Bassi will conduct a thorough examination and investigate your medical history to confirm that the Allurion Balloon is right for you. The balloon is placed during a brief 20-minute visit to our privately owned hospital in Newton-Le-Willows and most people can return to normal activities immediately following placement.
Tracking your weight loss
During the program, a smart scale connects you with your dedicated dietician Lucy Jones and allows her to track your progress, providing real-time advice and support, helping you stay on track.
How long does it last?
Four months after placement, the Allurion Balloon automatically deflates and passes naturally, without the need for a procedure or even an office visit for removal. By the time your balloon passes, your body will be accustomed to feeling healthy and energized with smaller portions.
