The Elipse Gastric Balloon is a revolutionary ‘procedureless’ gastric balloon weight loss treatment which requires:
- No surgery
- No endoscopy
- No anaesthesia
- 15 minutes from start to finish
Elipse removal procedure
Elipse is not just a device – it is a fully monitored 6 month weight loss program which includes a healthy diet and regular exercise.
The Elipse balloon is simply swallowed in form of a soft capsule attached to a tube. Then an X-ray will determine that the balloon is in the correct position and the balloon will be filled using 550ml purified water. Once the balloon is full, the tube is removed.
A full balloon in the stomach gives the sensation of fullness and suppresses the patient’s appetite. This makes it easier to adjust to smaller portion sizes as part of a weight loss programme.
There is no removal process for the Elipse gastric balloon – it is simply passed naturally 16 weeks (4 months) after insertion.
Elipse gastric balloon results
Typically patients can expect to lose 10-20 kg in 16 weeks with a waistline reduction of around 8cm. Elipse is an effective and safe treatment which can really help patients to kick-start their weight loss journey, supporting the earliest stage so that patients can see real results and learn the habits of healthy eating to enable them to continue once the Elipse is no longer there.
