What is an Elipse gastric balloon?

The Elipse™ gastric balloon stands out for its convenient entry and spontaneous exit from the body. The whole process takes about 20 minutes. First you swallow the capsule, which is attached to a thin tube. Once the balloon is in your stomach, the doctor fills it up with fluid through the tube. Then the doctor carefully removes the tube and the procedure is finished.

Benefits of the Elipse gastric balloon

The gastric balloon significantly reduces the volume of your stomach for four months, meaning you will eat much smaller portion sizes. After the procedure you will receive a digital scale connected to a mobile application that will record important parameters over the following months. A nutritionist will work with you to track and assess your weight loss. You will also receive nutritional advice from an experienced dietologist to help make sure you achieve the best weight loss results you can.

We will find you an experienced doctor

What to expect


Before the procedure

On the day before the procedure you should adjust your diet according to the doctor’s instructions. You should stick to easily digested foods. We will give you more specific recommendations before the procedure. Please do not eat anything after midnight the night before.


During the procedure

The Elipse gastric balloon enters the body by swallowing a capsule and involves no anaesthesia or endoscopy. Before you swallow it, the balloon is in the form of a capsule the size of a large pill. This is much more manageable than other types of gastric balloon. Next you have an X-ray to make sure the capsule has reached its destination in the stomach. The doctor gently fills the balloon with liquid through the thin catheter attached to the capsule to about the size of a grapefruit (about half a litre). Once the balloon is full, the catheter disconnects and is removed through the mouth.

After the procedure

You go home from the clinic with a nutrition plan to help you adopt a healthy diet with regular small meals. You will also receive a digital scale connected to an application that will record important parameters. After four months the balloon is passed naturally into the toilet. During those four months with the Elipse balloon you will have lost about 10-15% of your body weight.

Just-in-case insurance

The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word

What do clinical studies say about the ELIPSE™ gastric balloon?

A clinical study involving 135 patients with an average age of 33.5 years confirmed the safety and efficacy of the ELIPSE™ gastric balloon (Al Sabah et al., The Safety and Efficacy of the Procedure-less Intra-Gastric Balloon, in Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases 14(3), December 2017). The patients lost an average of 13 kg in four months, reducing their BMI by an average of 4.9 points. The balloon was removed early due to nausea in 2% of patients.
