Here’s how it works…
You swallow a capsule containing the lightweight balloon, which is then filled with liquid. After four months, the valve is dissolved and the balloon deflates and passes naturally, so there is no need to have it removed. It is ideal for patients who are classified as overweight, 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 within a few days.
Four months after placement, the Elipse Balloon automatically deflates and passes naturally, without the need for a procedure or an office visit for removal.
