Weight Loss Tool
At the center of the Elipse Program is a revolutionary soft balloon that creates a feeling of fullness in your stomach. Elipse is designed to help you reduce your food intake by taking up space in your stomach.
This gives you the chance to take a ‘honeymoon from hunger’1 and make healthier food choices, while at the same time avoiding the cravings that often come with dieting².
The balloon is swallowed during a 20-minute consultation with your doctor and passes out naturally approximately four months later.
There is no need for surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia.**
After approximately 16 weeks of Elipse therapy**, patients lose an average of 10 to 15kg and 10-15% of body weight.²-⁹
