Getting the Elipse Balloon

Getting the the Elipse Balloon takes about 15 minutes! The balloon comes in a capsule with a thin tube. You will swallow the capsule and your doctor will use a quick x-ray to make sure the balloon is in your stomach. The balloon will be filled through the tube and the tube will be removed, completing the process.

Living with the Elipse Balloon

You may experience some nausea and discomfort during the first week after you receive the balloon. Your doctor may prescribe medications to make you feel more comfortable. Your physician will provide detailed information regarding the risks and benefits of the ElipseTM System.

Eating with the Elipse Balloon

Your doctor may recommend that you drink only liquids for the first couple of days and that you move to solid foods when comfortable. Use the feelings of fullness provided by the Elipse Balloon to practice eating smaller, healthier meals.

Removing the Elipse Balloon

The Elipse Balloon removes itself – no need to visit your doctor. After about 16 weeks, the balloon will empty on its own and pass naturally.
