The Obalon is a weight loss system that is fully reversible, non-surgical option. It is administered without the need of deep sedation with a swallowable capsule. This capsule contains a deflated balloon which is inflated in your stomach after it is swallowed. Up to three balloons can be placed over a 6 month period to continue the weight loss journey. This system works by occupying space in your stomach. This limits the volume of food you can eat at any one time.
