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.

How do you qualify for free bariatric surgery?

If you are interested in getting a free surgery done from a public health facility, you should consult your GP. They should be able to direct you to a Medicare funded bariatric facility (Obesity and Metabolic clinics) where there are waiting times and certain qualifying criteria that must be met. If you are a holder of a Private Health Insurance, weight loss surgery may be covered under your insurance. Depending on your cover, you may still incur some out-of-pocket expenses. Please check with your private health insurance provider for more details. At Healthy weight Australia, We do not provide any free surgeries or procedures at any of our locations.
