How is the Gastric Balloon placed?
Insertion of the balloon takes place during a 20-minute outpatient visit. The Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon is the first gastric balloon that does not require endoscopy* or anesthesia for insertion or removal. All you have to do is swallow a capsule containing a deflated balloon with a thin filling string with a glass of water: When the Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon is confirmed by X-ray to be in your stomach, the balloon is filled with water via a thin filling string. A second X-ray will be taken to make sure the balloon is properly filled.
Is the Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon better than dieting alone?
A recent clinical study has shown that when combined with an intense 16-week lifestyle change (nutrition and exercise), the Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon aids in significant weight loss compared to lifestyle change alone. The percentage of patients who achieved 10% of their total body weight loss in 16 weeks with the Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon was only 8% in those trying to lose weight with diet and exercise alone, while it was 72% with the Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon. The Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon is more successful than dieting alone because patients feel less hungry, feel full faster after eating, and do not experience the hunger pangs that typically occur while dieting.
