Placement of the Elipse Balloon takes about 15 minutes and just involves a quick x-ray once you have swallowed the ‘gastric pill’. You can return to work the same day.
Most people can expect to lose between 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 stones over 4 months, with half of that weight loss occurring in the first month.
Combined with Phoenix Health’s supervised nutrition programme the Elipse balloon can help you lose weight and develop lasting habits to help you maintain your weight loss.
Meet your dietitian, begin nutritional and exercise coaching and learn how to maximise the impact of the Elipse program.
The Elipse Balloon is swallowed during a simple outpatient procedure that does not require surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia.
Diet and healthy lifestyle coaching continues.
We provide you with a set of smart scales which wirelessly connect to an app, allowing your dietitian to track your progress and offer real life advice and support.
After four months, the balloon empties and passes naturally without the need for any medical procedure.
After the balloon passes, you have regained control over your eating habits and your team will help you continue making healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices for long-term weight management.
