The Allurion Program is a comprehensive weight loss program, designed to help kickstart an average weight loss of 10-15% of your body weight in just 16 weeks using the revolutionary Allurion Gastric Pill Balloon alongside The Clinic at Beverly Hills’ fully supported 6-month lifestyle program.
Balloon Placement (Week 1)
The Allurion Gastric Balloon is a pill balloon capsule, which is swallowed under the guidance of our General Surgeon without anesthesia, endoscopy or surgery. The balloon is then inflated in your stomach through the connected catheter and periodically checked using rapid x-rays during your procedure to ensure safe placement. After the balloon is filled, the catheter is detached with the help of a slight nudge and your placement is complete. The entire procedure is safe, painless, non-permanent and takes approximately 15 minutes.
Lifestyle Program (Week 2 to Week 16)
The Lifestyle Program at The Clinic at Beverly Hills encompasses a complete weight-loss plan tailored to you by our team of weight-loss professionals to help adapt your eating behavior and lose your targeted weight for the long term. Supported by the Allurion Connected Scale, Health Tracker and App, our Lifestyle Program allows our team to guide you through every step of your weight-loss journey at The Clinic at Beverly Hills.
Balloon Deflation (Week 16)
A special filament bounds the Allurion Balloon together, which is exposed only to the internal contents of the gastric balloon. Over time, the internal contents slowly degrades this filament. At approximately 16 weeks, the filament is fully degraded and the balloon opens. This will result in the gastric balloon gently releases its contents into the stomach, leaving the membrane to pass naturally through the digestive system. In most cases, patients tend to not notice the passing of the deflated balloon.
Lifestyle Program – Post Deflation (Week 16 to Week 24)
Your team of weight-loss professionals at The Clinic at Beverly Hills will remain at hand to help you maintain your new relationship with food and keep the weight off. The Allurion Program has shown that up to 95% of average weight loss can be sustained one year after the Balloon exits the body with support from the Lifestyle Program.
