What does the Elipse balloon procedure involve?

Let us tell you..

Putting the Elipse Balloon in place

Fitting the Elipse Balloon takes about 15 minutes!

The balloon comes in a capsule attached to a thin filling tube. You swallow the capsule with a glass of water and once your doctor checks the balloon is in your stomach with a quick x-ray, the balloon is filled with fluid. The filling tube is then gently removed leaving the balloon in your stomach.

Watch the video to see how it’s done.

Living with the Elipse Balloon

You may experience some nausea and discomfort during the first week after the balloon is fitted, but we will supply you with medications to make you feel more comfortable. We will provide detailed information regarding the risks and benefits of the Elipse™

Eating with the Elipse Balloon

We may recommend that you only drink liquids for the first couple of days and that you move to solid foods when comfortable. The Elipse balloon will help you feel fuller allowing you to eat smaller portions. Advice will be given throughout the programme on following a healthy balanced diet, mindful eating and changing habits to achieve optimal results.

Removing the Elipse Balloon*

The Elipse Balloon removes itself – no need to visit your doctor. After about 16 weeks part of the balloon dissolves, and the balloon will then empty itself and pass naturally.
