The Elipse gastric balloon is an exciting new weight loss tool, that is now offered by Dr Balalis. It is the first swallowable gastric balloon and is placed with no surgery, endoscopy or anaesthesia.
The Elipse provides proven weight loss, for patients from BMI 27-40, and has been used extensively in Europe and Asia with over 47 000 being placed to date.
The balloon is placed during an outpatient visit, and after approximately 16 weeks, it empties and passes naturally. Trials have shown that patients lose on average 10-15% TBWL (Total Body Weight Loss).
As always, it is important to liaise with health professionals, and to also couple any therapy with important lifestyle changes.
