A fully supported weight-loss program


Gastric balloons induce weight-loss by increasing satiety (fullness), delaying gastric emptying, and reducing the amount of food eaten at each meal.

Dr. Mohit Bhandari’s weight loss Program provides “a honeymoon from hunger”



You swallow a capsule that contains the balloon attached to a thin tube.

You will have an X-ray to make sure the capsule is in the right position.



Once in your stomach, your doctor will use the tube to fill the balloon with liquid.

You will have a second X-ray to confirm the balloon is filled. The doctor will then gently remove the tube and you’ll be on your way.

With the balloon in your stomach, you can eat less without feeling hungry.



At approximately 16 weeks after placement, the Allurion Swallow Balloon self-empties and passes naturally.

How does the balloon work?

How does the balloon work?

The balloon takes up space in your stomach and induces weight-loss by increasing satiety (fullness), delaying gastric emptying, and reducing the amount of food eaten at each meal.

How much weight can you expect to lose?


10-15% of total body weight lost on average.


Up to 95% of weight loss may be sustained one year after the balloon has passed.


Losing just 5% or more of your total body weight can significantly reduce your risk of developing obesity-related complications like diabetes and heart disease

What is Dr. Mohit Bhandari's Weight loss Program?

A 6-month weight-loss program built around the Allurion Swallow Pill, a breakthrough weight-loss device.

How much weight can be lost with the Weight Loss Program?

After approximately 16-18 weeks of the Weight Loss Program, on average, patients lose between 15-20% of their total body weight.

What is the Allurion Swallow Pill ?

The Allurion Pill is a soft capsule that is swallowed by the patient and is filled by fluid to take the form of a balloon placed in your stomach. It is the first gastric
balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anesthesia for placement or removal. The balloon is placed during a brief 15-minute outpatient visit and
patient can be sent home in one hour.

What happens on placement day?

The patient swallows a capsule containing the deflated balloon along with a thin tube. Once the balloon is confirmed to be in your stomach via X-ray, the balloon is filled through the catheter with 550 ml of water. A second X-ray takes place to make sure the balloon is fully filled in the stomach. The placement takes place during a 15-minute outpatient visit.

How does the Allurion Swallow Balloon work?

The balloon takes up space in your stomach and induces weight loss by increasing fullness, delaying gastric emptying, and reducing the amount of food eaten at each meal.

Is it easy to swallow?

Nearly 100% of people succeed in swallowing the Allurion Swallow Balloon. If you have trouble swallowing the capsule on your own, your physician can assist you by gently stiffening the catheter with a thin wire.

What are the possible side effects after balloon placement?

Some people experience nausea, abdominal cramping, and occasional vomiting after balloon placement. In most cases, these symptoms are well-controlled with the commonly used medications prescribed.

How is the balloon removed?

After approximately 16-18 weeks inside your stomach, a time-activated release valve will open, allowing the balloon to empty and pass naturally through the gastrointestinal tract without the need for a removal procedure.

How long does it take to return to normal activities after placement?

Following physician approval, most people return to normal activity within a day or two; however, some people may experience longer side effects. It can be a good idea to book a few days off work afterwards just in case, or have the balloon placed on a Friday so you have the weekend off.

What happens after the balloon has passed?

After the Allurion Swallow Balloon passes, the Weight loss Program and the related support from your healthcare team continues for one month. At the end of the Weight loss Program, you should continue your healthy lifestyle habits. One clinical study showed that 95% of the average weight loss with the Allurion Swallow Balloon was sustained at 1-year followup.

What are the dietary restrictions?

There are some specific dietary recommendations before placement and during the first week after placement as you adapt to the balloon. The weeks that follow the placement are a great time to start making changes to the way you eat. You do not need to make huge changes to eat healthier all at once, it’s best to set small goals and change your habits a little bit at a time.

Can I exercise with the balloon and will I feel it?

Some patients feel the balloon at the beginning of their journey but more often than not, people become accustomed to the balloon and often forget it is there.
