Allurion Stomach Balloon
The Allurion program is an innovative program centered around a gastric balloon and digital tools for weight reduction. Groruddalsklinikken is the first clinic in Eastern Norway to offer this new treatment.
The Allurion balloon fills up your stomach so you’re less hungry – making it easier to eat better, eat less and create healthy habits that last.
The balloon only lasts a few months, but the result can last a lifetime

Get a kick start on the road to weight loss
The Allurion program is a comprehensive and supported program for a healthy lifestyle, centered around a gastric balloon and digital tools for weight reduction.
Understand how gastric balloons works
Gastric balloons are in widespread use and provide more significant and sustained weight loss than diet and exercise alone.
Gastric balloons take up space in the stomach, which increases the feeling of satiety and reduces the speed at which food passes. This gives you the opportunity to take a “holiday from hunger”, choose healthier food, and avoid the cravings that often accompany a normal diet.
Transform your waistline with a healthier lifestyle
The Allurion balloon is a new method of weight loss. It does not require surgery, endoscopy* or anesthesia.
The balloon is swallowed during a 15-minute outpatient procedure. About 16 weeks later, the air deflates and comes out naturally.* It’s a convenient and safe way to kick-start a healthier lifestyle.
On average, patients lose 10–15% of
body weight thanks to the Allurion program. 1
