+How much does the Obalon Balloon System cost?The average cost, including three balloons, nutritional support, and balloon removal is approximately $8500. Ma’am Exams offers financing options to help patients achieve their weight loss goals.

The program should be accompanied with a healthy diet and exercise program during the time you have the balloons and is recommended for six months after the balloons are removed.
+What weight loss results can I expect?In a large clinical study, the Obalon Balloon System was shown to help adults experience clinically meaningful weight loss. When combined with a diet and exercise program people lost twice as much weight as than with diet and exercise alone. An average of 89% of the total weight lost at six months was maintained at 1 year.
+How is the Obalon Balloon System placed?Placement of the Obalon Balloon System typically takes less than 10 minutes per balloon and does not require sedation. You will swallow a capsule containing a small balloon in our office then our physician will inflate the balloon. Clinical studies show that after placement, most patients return to normal activities with no downtime.
