What is the Allurion Balloon?

It requires no surgery, endoscopy^ or anaesthesia for placement or removal

The balloon is a soft, polyurethane balloon packaged into a swallowable capsule attached to a thin catheter or tube. Once the balloon is swallowed and correctly placed, the balloon is filled with 550ml of fluid through the catheter. Once fully filled, the Allurion balloon is approximately the size of a grapefruit and will help you feel fuller for longer. After approximately 16 weeks, the Allurion balloon deflates automatically and is passed naturally in the toilet.

Gastric Balloon Programs

Gastric Balloons are a weight management tool which helps you feel full for longer and encourages better eating habits. Balloon insertions are performed with no Surgery (no scars). They are non-permanent and the procedures take only 20 minutes so you can return home on the same day. At Healthy Weight Australia we offer the Allurion gastric balloon and the Orbera gastric balloons as part of our gastric balloon programs. Each has it’s merit and our team are here to help you choose the program which best suit your weightloss goals.

Currently, insertion of Intragastric Balloons is not covered by Private Health Insurance or Medicare. HealthyWeight Australia offer affordable pricing option, keeping with our mission of “Affordable medical care to patients”

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.
