Sometimes, dieting isn’t enough

The Elipse Balloon is a revolutionary gastric balloon that creates a feeling of fullness by taking up space in your stomach. It gives you the chance to take a ‘honeymoon from hunger’. A soft balloon that is placed in your stomach. It is the first swallowable gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia. Elipse is designed to help you reduce your food intake by taking up space in your stomach and kick-start your new, healthier lifestyle choices

The balloon is placed during a 20-minute consultation with your doctor.11 You swallow a capsule that contains the deflated balloon. The capsule is attached to a thin tube. There is no need for surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia. A simple X-ray is used to make sure the capsule is in the right position.

Once the capsule is in your stomach, your doctor will use the tube to fill the balloon with liquid. You will have a second X-ray to confirm the balloon is filled and that the placement is complete. Your doctor will then gently remove the tube and you’ll be on your way. With the balloon in your stomach, you will be able to eat less food without feeling hungry.

No weight loss programme is a magic bullet. An effective programme is based on good healthcare and good science. Elipse is just that: it is a proven programme that takes a holistic approach to losing weight. It combines a high-tech balloon solution with a full package of support to help you develop good lifestyle habits that can remain with you long after your balloon has gone. One clinical study with 509 patients showed that 95% of average weight loss with Elipse can be sustained at 12 month follow up.
