Blackhawk Plastic Surgery offers Obalon Balloon Stystem for Weight Loss
The first and only swallowable weight loss device in the U.S. now available at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery: The Obalon Balloon System
Obalon Balloon System if they have a body mass index (BMI) from 30 to 40 kg/m2 and are 22 years or older. Patients must be willing to follow a 12-month program. Typically, three (3) lightweight, buoyant balloons are placed gradually over 3 months to maximize patient tolerability and facilitate progressive
weight loss throughout the 6-month treatment period. The Obalon Balloon System is intended to be used as an adjunct to a moderate intensity diet and behavior modification program. All balloons must be removed six months after the first balloon is placed. "When we learned about the Obalon Balloon System, we immediately wanted to offer it in our practice. Patients struggling with obesity have been asking for years for a less invasive option that can be coupled
with lifestyle modification,"
loss achieved with the Obalon Balloon System is typically maintained at 12 months, providing patients with an opportunity to maintain a healthier lifestyle."
During the clinical trial, Obalon Balloon System patients lost on average 15 pounds and up to 50 pounds. "Our office prides itself on offering the latest innovative treatment options that are safe and effective. Obalon is an example of one of those treatment options – a technology designed to help patients reach their weight loss goals. We are proud to be one of the first in the area
offering this revolutionary treatment," commented Stephen J. Ronan MD FACS.
