Novomed offers a breakthrough in weight loss

The Elipse balloon is a non-invasive option that can dramatically kick-start your weight loss journey

If you have failed to lose weight through conventional means such as diet and exercise, the Elipse balloon could be an excellent solution for you. This temporary balloon helps you to feel full and, therefore, to eat less and lose weight. With our team behind you, and using this revolutionary product, you will experience significant results. Combined with diet and lifestyle changes, studies show that patients lose 15kg on average after 16 weeks of therapy. (For those who need to lose more than this, surgery might be needed. Novomed has the best and safest obesity surgery team with great long-term results. We offer gastric sleeves, gastric bands and gastric bypasses, and also conduct complex revision surgeries.) Health benefits of losing weight include lower cholesterol, blood pressure and improved glycemic control and quality of life.

Here’s how it works…

You swallow a capsule containing the lightweight balloon, which is then filled with water. After four months, the balloon dissolves and passes naturally, so there is no need to have it removed. It is ideal for patients who need to lose only 5-15 kg, where obesity surgery would be over-kill.

The Elipse Balloon is placed during a brief 20-minute clinic visit and, following our gastroenterologist’s approval, most people return to normal activities immediately afterwards.

Four months after placement, the Elipse Balloon automatically deflates and passes naturally, without the need for a procedure or an office visit for removal.
