Restrictive diets and extensive exercise routines are simply not fun and don’t always work, which oftentimes, makes weight loss one big, endless struggle. Thankfully, there’s another option available for those who feel that diet and exercise alone isn’t giving them the results they desire.

Enter: The Obalon Balloon System, an FDA-approved treatment to help people achieve long-term weight loss. The nonsurgical treatment begins with a patient swallowing a capsule that contains a small balloon. Shortly after being swallowed, the balloon reaches the stomach and is inflated with a proprietary gas through an attached catheter. Once the balloon is inflated, the catheter is removed and the lightweight balloon is left behind. During the six-month treatment, three balloons take up space within the stomach, helping to curb the patient’s appetite. Each balloon placement takes about 10 minutes, and the treatment, with diet and exercise, has helped patients lose twice as much weight as diet and exercise alone. Plus, on average, 89 percent of the weight loss that patients experienced was kept off six months post-balloon removal, making it a longer-term solution for many.

So, if you’re looking to lose weight as part of your New Years’s resolutions, join Obalon’s “Don’t Weight” New Year Challenge taking place from January 1 to March 31, in participating accounts. The rebate program works by providing patients with up to a total rebate of $1,500 for one treatment of the Obalon Balloon System, making weight loss this new year certainly a possibility.


The Obalon Balloon System is intended for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 kg/m2 willing to follow a diet and exercise program. All Obalon balloons must be removed in 6 months. Patients with prior weight loss surgeries are not eligible. The most common side effects reported were mild abdominal pain and nausea which typically resolved within two weeks. You must take daily acid-blocking medicine prescribed by your doctor. For full Important Safety Information click on Safety Information and Patient Labeling
