How much does the Elipse gastric balloon cost?

Are you tired of dieting with no results? Are you losing the weight and quickly putting it back on again? Is there a holiday or event you want to lose weight for? Or perhaps you’d just like to wear the clothes that you love once again? The medical world is never short of weird and wonderful treatments that can help you achieve what may have once felt impossible, often with very minimal downtime compared to many surgical procedures. The Elipse gastric balloon is no exception.

Known as the world’s first ‘swallowable gastric balloon in a pill’, the Elipse enables up to 15% body weight loss in as little as four months with no surgery. The balloon system consists of a soft, expandable balloon inserted orally and filled with 500ml of water through a catheter once inside the stomach. This is where it sits for approximately four months, making you feel fuller with less food in your stomach. After this time, the balloon deflates and passes naturally through your gastrointestinal tract.

Overall, gastric balloon treatment can significantly reduce your portion sizes and help you reach your long-term weight loss goals. So, how much can you expect to spend on a procedure like the Elipse and is it the right step for you?

What are the benefits?

Being overweight or obese can have a severe impact on your health. Carrying extra fat can lead to serious health consequences such as heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, mobility issues, diabetes, and sleep apnea. The Elipse balloon is designed to help you lose weight and help you build a solid foundation for a much healthier and fulfilled lifestyle so that you can maintain your weight loss long after the balloon has passed.

For most people, one of the most significant benefits of having a gastric balloon procedure is that it’s minimally invasive, does not involve surgery, and it’s performed in as little as thirty minutes, meaning minimal interruption to daily life.

Is it right for me?

If your Body Mass Index (BMI) score is over 27, a gastric balloon may help you achieve long-term weight loss and manage or prevent other medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. It’s an excellent procedure for achieving and maintaining sustainable weight loss without surgical intervention.

The Elipse balloon may also be particularly useful for people considered too overweight to undergo necessary surgery. By helping to reduce weight before surgery successfully, the Elipse can mitigate the risks associated with surgical procedures on overweight patients.
