Swallowable Gastric Balloon

The Allurion Balloon is a swallowable, capsule shaped balloon with a thin catheter attached to its end. You swallow this capsule with plenty of water, accompanied by a doctor. After swallowing, we take an x-ray and check its location in the stomach. Then we start inflating it with 550 cc of its special liquid. After the inflation process is complete, we take another radiograph and check its location in the stomach again, and if everything is fine, we pull out the connected catheter. This way, it settles in your stomach.

What is the mechanism behind the Swallowable Gastric Balloon's operation?

The Swallowable Gastric Balloon in Turkey is a pill balloon capsule that was formerly known as the "Elipse Balloon." This pill balloon capsule is swallowed under the guidance of our Healthcare Professionals in Turkey without the need for anesthesia or endoscopy*. 

The Balloon will be inflated in your stomach, checked using quick x-rays and you’ll be on your way! When performed as an outpatient visit, the entire process usually only takes about fifteen minutes. In addition to this, you will have the assistance of the This System Connected Scale, as well as the Health Tracker and App.

You can lose an average of 10-15% of your body weight in just 16 weeks  with the help of the Balloon, which is safe, non-permanent, and recommended by medical professionals. This weight loss can be achieved in conjunction with our fully supported 6-month lifestyle programme.

After ~16 weeks the pill balloon degrades and leaves the body naturally.​

The effects may remain for an entire lifetime. When the balloon pops, you'll have new food preferences, will have adjusted to smaller portion sizes, and will have developed a new understanding of your body, all of which will lead to real results rather than endless yo-yoing. ​

The Swallowable Gastric Balloon is a harmless, non-permanent solution that can assist you in getting off to a good start on your journey to lose weight.

Your swallowable gastric balloon with DentPrime Health in Turkey is only performed by authorized practitioners who are experts in this field and have international accreditation.

What are the differences between the Swallowable Gastric Balloon and other gastric balloons?

The Swallowable Gastric Balloon (We will use Allurion) is the world’s first and only gastric balloon without the need for surgery, endoscopy* or anesthesia for balloon placement and removal. The balloon is swallowed as a capsule during a 15-minute placement which means less downtime or time off work for our patients.
Designed to pass naturally at approximately 16 weeks, this Balloon maximizes weight loss while minimizing time spent in the body, making it a more effective option than longer 6-month endoscopic balloons, where 80% of weight loss is achieved within the first 3 months.(ref 1)

The Swallowable Gastric Balloon is a safer option, with fewer side effects. It has a significantly lower intolerance rate compared to 12-month endoscopic balloons (1-3% vs 14.4%) (ref 2,3), with an overall serious adverse event rate that is 10 times lower than other liquid-filled balloons.(ref 4-10)

Made from vegan polyurethane, a material that’s much thinner and more flexible than the silicone material in endoscopic balloons, this Balloon flexes and adapts as your stomach moves, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit.
