The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted approval for Obalon balloon system.
Ultimate Bariatrics is one of the first practices in Texas to offer this new tool in helping people achieve their weight loss goals.
The OBALON 3-Balloon System is the first and only ingestible, non-surgical, fully reversible, 6 month, FDA-approved balloon system and Ultimate Bariatrics is proud to be one of the first practices in Texas to offer this new tool in helping people achieve their weight loss goals.
The Obalon Balloon System is non-surgical treatment that consists of 3 lightweight balloons, placed gradually over 6 months.
The balloons occupy space in your stomach so that you feel full and less hungry, making weight loss easier. This 6-month treatment should be accompanied by a professionally-supervised diet and exercise program.
