Losing weight can be a challenge, and what works for some may not work for others. Sometimes, diet and exercise alone simply don’t give you the results you’re hoping for, leaving many feeling unsure what to try next. Bariatric weight loss surgery can be an effective solution for some, however, if an invasive procedure isn’t an option or you simply don’t want a permanent change to your anatomy, then we might have the perfect solution.
We are proud to offer patients the minimally invasive Obalon balloon system for weight loss at La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa.Get the 5-star patient care you deserve at LJCMS
What is the Obalon balloon system?
Obalon is the first and only FDA approved swallowable balloon system for weight loss. It is a non-surgical, fully reversible weight loss system with a proven safety profile. Treatment consists of three balloons that are placed gradually over the course of three months, where they will take up space in your stomach to reduce how much you eat and facilitate weight loss.
The entire course of treatment is six months and should be used in conjunction with a supervised diet and exercise program to ensure you are getting the best results—and helping you change your habits to keep the weight off long-term.
What kind of results can I expect from the Obalon system?
In clinical studies performed by Obalon, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to effectively help adults experience meaningful weight loss—and an average of 89.5% of the total weight lost at six months was maintained at the one year mark.
During the study, participants who combined a supervised diet and exercise program with their Obalon system lost twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone!
It’s important to remember that to get the most out of Obalon, you need to be willing to make certain lifestyle changes, including a commitment to regular exercise and a healthy diet—while the balloons are in and after they are removed.
Am I a good candidate for Obalon?
If you are 22 years or older, want to lose between 15 and 50 pounds, have a BMI from 30 – 40 kg/m2, and are hoping to jump-start your weight loss journey, Obalon may be a wonderful fit for you. During your free consultation, we will discuss your medical history, previous procedures, and medications you are actively taking to determine if Obalon is a safe option.
