The Obalon Balloon System is the FIRST and ONLY swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. The non-surgical treatment should consist of three lightweight balloons, placed gradually over three months. The balloons occupy space in your stomach, so you eat less, making weight loss easier. The Obalon system should be accompanied by a professionally-supervised diet and exercise program for long-term results. The Obalon Balloon System is a 6-month treatment.

Our Atlanta Obalon Balloon System helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach, so you eat less. During treatment, you should receive professional nutrition and exercise support to help you make the lifestyle changes that support weight loss. The Obalon Balloon System supports you to help change your eating habits and keep the weight off for the long-term.
Placement of the Obalon Balloon System typically takes less than ten minutes per balloon and does not require sedation. In your physician’s office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon, and then your physician inflates the balloon. In the clinical study after placement, most patients returned to normal activities with no downtime.
At the end of the 6-month treatment period, all three balloons are removed by a brief, approximately 15 minute, outpatient endoscopic procedure, performed under light, conscious sedation.
The average cost, including three balloons, nutritional support, and balloon removal, typically ranges from $7,500 to $9,000. At Ideal Body Institute, we offer financing options so you can get the treatment you need when you need it. The cost may vary due to your current health condition, the length of your procedure, and the type of insurance.
Our Buckhead Obalon Balloon System can assist with your weight loss efforts, but your weight loss success also depends on you, and your willingness to develop new lifestyle skills. The degree of long-term weight loss will depend on your ability to modify your lifestyle and maintain healthy habits after the balloons are removed. You must understand your commitment and accept it before having the Obalon Balloon placed to achieve significant weight loss.
In a large clinical study, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to help adults experience meaningful weight loss. When combined with a diet and exercise program, people lost twice as much weight as than with diet and exercise alone. An average of 89 percent of the total weight loss at six months was maintained at one year.
After the Obalon balloon is taken out, the goal is to have you accustomed to healthy habits for you to maintain your hard-earned weight loss. It is important to remember that the Obalon balloon is only a tool to help build healthy, lifelong habits.
The Obalon Balloon System is a safe and effective, FDA-approved, non-surgical weight loss system. In our clinical trial, the majority of adverse events were reported as mild and consisted of abdominal pain and nausea. Serious side effects were less than 0.3 percent. Your physician will discuss more details on the potential side effects, and you can find full Important Safety Information, including a complete list of adverse events reported in the clinical trial in the Safety Information section.
