What is the Elipse® gastric balloon and how does it work?
It is a gastric balloon that is swallowed by mouth with a little water. It is a capsule containing the balloon and attached to a thin catheter, which is removed once the balloon filling process is completed.
No sedation or endoscopic procedure is required to introduce the balloon into the stomach, only a few minutes of radiographic control to verify its correct implantation. Once the capsule is swallowed and reaches the stomach, the balloon is filled with 550 cc of purified water.
What does it feel like after the Elipse® gastric balloon implantation?
The first few days you may feel nausea or discomfort, which will disappear in a short time. In these cases, medication is prescribed to minimize these symptoms and make the patient feel better.
The feeding during the first three days will consist of a liquid diet and little by little, as the patient feels well, he/she will be able to incorporate solid food. The feeling of satiety provided by the Ellipse balloon allows to successfully initiate and maintain the whole parallel process of acquiring healthy habits. A multidisciplinary team will be at your side to help you.
How long does the Elipse® gastric balloon stay in the stomach?
The time of permanence of this balloon in the stomach is approximately 16 weeks (4 months).
What will happen when I have removed the gastric balloon?

How much weight can be lost with this type of gastric balloon?
Depending on each case and type of overweight or obesity during the time the balloon implantation lasts, it is possible to lose at least 10-15Kg.
