Hi, my story is that I’ve been a yo yo all my life with my weight, up n down. As I’ve aged I found it more difficult to yo yo down. My Dr was hassling me to drop weight and subsequently suggested I check out Healthy Weight Aust. I almost had surgery previously and did not see myself doing something so drastic hence the Allurian Balloon seemed perfect. HWA have been incredibly communicative and supportive through out the process. I would say the first few days after swallowing the balloon were tough yet subsequently I’ve lost 15% of my body weight in 3 months with zero extra activity, sorry to the lovely lady that gave me an exercise program. My Nutritionist has been so supportive and positive, I doubt I’d have done so well without him. I am supportive of the program if you need motivation, an extra reminder to not over eat (balloon) and a caring/approachable team behind you. Good luck on your journey, Allurian will only work if you get in the game, it is only a tool.

I highly recommend this program. Not only has it helped my lose 19.7kg in less then 4 months it has helped me change my mindset with eating correctly and has motivated me to exercise regularly. The help and support you get along the way is amazing and really helps you achieve your goals. If you are considering weight loss surgery seriously try this first. It was a simple 15min procedure(walk in swallow capsule fill up and walk out) that has changed my life for the best. I am the healthiest and fittest I have been in years.

I cannot recommend the team at HWA enough. I had the Allurion balloon programme, with placement in April 2023. My starting weight was 95+kgs, and over the following 4 months the team have been instrumental in supporting and guiding me with my weightless journey. I lost 15kgs with the balloon, and another 4+kgs after the Allurion programme finished and still going. I have just signed up to my very first 10kms fun run. The entire teams care and attention to their clients is exemplarity, and they focused closely on how you are feeling, the energy you have - and not just the numbers on the scale. A welcome change to previous weight loss experiences. I am so grateful for this life changing experience - the best thing I have ever done for my health. If you are considering a weight loss journey, I would not hesitate to reach out to the team at HWA.

What to expect with the procedure

A gastric balloon that doesn't require surgery or anaesthesia

Taking approximately 20 minutes overall, placing the Allurion Gastric Balloon is simple with most patients going back to work within days, depending on how they tolerate the balloon.

1

Swallowing Balloon Capsule with Catheter

With a glass of sparkling water, the patient swallows the balloon capsule which is attached to a thin filling catheter.

2

Stomach X-Ray for Balloon Positioning

An x-ray of the patient’s stomach is taken to ensure the correct positioning of the gastric balloon.

3

Filling Gastric Balloon with Water

The balloon is filled with distilled water and will occupy ~60% of the patient’s stomach. Another x-ray is taken to confirm the filled balloon and correct positioning.

4

Catheter Removal, Gastric Balloon in Place

The catheter is removed leaving the gastric balloon in the stomach. Between 12 and 16 weeks the balloon deflates, passes through the digestive system, and is expelled naturally.

FAQs

What is the Allurion Balloon?

The Allurion Balloon is the world’s first and only gastric balloon without the need for surgery, endoscopy* or anaesthesia for balloon placement and removal. The balloon is swallowed as a capsule during a 20-minute placement which means less downtime or time off work. The balloon stays in the stomach for a period of time, during which it helps you to eat smaller portions, consume fewer calories and achieve significant weight loss. Designed to pass naturally at approximately 16 weeks, the Allurion Balloon maximises weight loss while minimising time spent in the body.

What is the Allurion Balloon made of?

Made from vegan polyurethane, a material that’s much thinner and more flexible than the silicone material in endoscopic balloons, the Allurion Balloon flexes and adapts as your stomach moves, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit.

How does the Allurion Balloon work?

The Allurion balloon is a weight loss solution that involves placing a soft, inflatable balloon in the stomach to reduce its capacity and help you feel fuller faster and stay fuller for longer. It is considered safe and a less invasive alternative to weight loss surgery. The balloon stays in the stomach for a period of time, during which it helps you to eat smaller portions, consume fewer calories, and achieve weight loss. After this residence period, the balloon deflates and passes out of the body naturally.

How is the Allurion Balloon placed?

The placement takes place during a less than 20-minute outpatient visit. Allurion is the first gastric balloon that requires no endoscopy* or anaesthesia for placement or removal. Simply swallow a capsule containing the deflated Balloon with a catheter. Once the Balloon is confirmed to be in your stomach via x-ray, the Balloon is filled with water through a catheter. A second x-ray takes place to ensure the Balloon is filled correctly.

Will I gain back the weight that I lost?

Up to 96% of weight-loss may be sustained 12 months after the Balloon exits the body if you continue with healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After the placement, you can continue with your life; however, you may have some symptoms for a few days such as nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps. Your healthcare professional will advise you on care and nutrition after placement and the best plan to resume your activities, such as going to the gym and exercising.
