Elipse balloon procedureThe Elipse balloon is a gastric balloon that is swallowed like a pill and that, after 4 months in the stomach, is eliminated from the body like any other food that we ingest. This procedure without anesthesia or endoscopy is recommended for patients with a BMI between 27-40, with which they can lose up to 15 kilos. The Elipse balloon comes in a capsule form (a bit larger than an antibiotic pill) and has a tube attached that allows the balloon to be filled, avoiding sedation and the endoscopy. The process is carried out in the consultation, where the x-ray is done prior to the filling of the balloon to make sure that the pill has entered the stomach properly. It will remain there for 16 weeks, helping to decrease the caloric digestion throughout that period and allowing weight loss of 10-15kg. Once the 16 weeks are over, the balloon’s valve opens, this deflates the balloon and it is passed through the body with the feces without the need for an endoscopy or a trip to the hospital to extract it.
