Elipse Gastric Balloon
The Weight Loss Balloon Pill
The Elipse Balloon is a revolutionary gastric balloon that creates the feeling of fullness by taking up space in your stomach. The balloon is soft and flexible allowing it to be packed inside a capsule for easy placement. It is the first gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia for placement or removal.
This effective programme is based on good healthcare and good science. Elipse is just that: it is a proven programme that takes a holistic approach to losing weight. It combines the high-tech balloon solution with a full package of personalised coaching to help you develop healthy diet and lifestyle habits that can remain with you long after your balloon has gone.
