Your Journey

Welcome to the Allurion Weight Loss Programme!

The Allurion Balloon is a swallowable gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia. It helps to reduce weight by taking up space in the stomach, creating a feeling of fullness and reducing your food intake.

Lose an average of 10 to 15%* of total body weight in 4 months, thanks to the balloon. Alongside this is the fully supported Kitakurang Programme to help you maintain the weight loss.

*Results may vary based on different individuals.

How is the Allurion Balloon Placed?

A 30-minute placement of Allurion will be done by your doctor, using a swallowable capsule (containing the deflated balloon) attached to a thin tube. No surgery, endoscopy, and anesthesia is required.
Once inside your stomach, the balloon is filled with liquid. An X-ray is done before and after to confirm that the balloon is placed and filled correctly.
After approximately 4 months, a time-activated valve empties the balloon which then passed out naturally through your digestive system.

In short:

  • Procedure takes only 30 minutes
  • Balloon passes naturally after 4 months
  • Lose an average of 10 to 15% of your total body weight
  • 50,000 balloons distributed worldwide
  • Includes nutritional and fitness support for your well-being, over 6 months
  • Includes a connected scale, a health tracker and a phone app to track your progress
