What does the Allurion balloon procedure involve?

Let us tell you..

Putting the Allurion Balloon in place

Fitting the Allurion Balloon takes about 15 minutes!

The balloon comes in a capsule attached to a thin filling tube. You swallow the capsule with a glass of water and once your doctor checks the balloon is in your stomach with a quick x-ray, the balloon is filled with fluid. The filling tube is then gently removed leaving the balloon in your stomach.

Watch the video to see how it’s done.

Living with the Allurion Balloon

You may experience some nausea and discomfort during the first week after the balloon is fitted, but we will supply you with medications to make you feel more comfortable. We will provide detailed information regarding the risks and benefits of the Allurion™

Eating with the Allurion Balloon

We may recommend that you only drink liquids for the first couple of days and that you move to solid foods when comfortable. The Allurion balloon will help you feel fuller allowing you to eat smaller portions. Advice will be given throughout the programme on following a healthy balanced diet, mindful eating and changing habits to achieve optimal results.

Removing the Allurion Balloon*

The Allurion Balloon removes itself – no need to visit your doctor. After about 16 weeks part of the balloon dissolves, and the balloon will then empty itself and pass naturally.

Most people can expect to lose between 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 stones over 4 months, with half of that weight loss occurring in the first month.


Combined with Phoenix Health’s supervised nutrition programme the Allurion balloon can help you lose weight and develop lasting habits to help you maintain your weight loss.

How it works*



Meet your dietitian, begin nutritional and exercise coaching and learn how to maximise the impact of the Allurion program.



The Allurion Balloon is swallowed during a simple outpatient procedure that does not require surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia.

Diet and healthy lifestyle coaching continues.

We provide you with a set of smart scales which wirelessly connect to an app, allowing your dietitian to track your progress and offer real life advice and support.

After four months, the balloon empties and passes naturally without the need for any medical procedure.

MONTH 6-12


After the balloon passes, you have regained control over your eating habits and your team will help you continue making healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices for long-term weight management.
