Obalon

« Back to Glossary Index

Obalon is a weight loss program that consists of a swallowing device filled with a gas-filled balloon. The device is designed to be swallowed and then filled with a non-toxic gas, which takes up space in the stomach and helps people feel full faster. This can lead to reduced food intake and ultimately, weight loss. The program is non-invasive and can be performed in a doctor’s office. Obalon is considered a temporary weight loss solution and is intended to be used in combination with a diet and exercise program.
