“The balloon helped me to reprogram my mind on what I should eat and it's enabled me to carry out everyday tasks – it’s given me my life back. I am also thinking about planning a holiday by myself, where in the past I had to go with somebody”

Day 1

Therapy begins when the patient swallows a vegetarian capsule containing the Elipse Balloon. After an x-ray confirms the balloon is in the stomach, it is filled with liquid via a catheter. The procedure lasts around 20 minutes. A second x-ray confirms the balloon is filled.

Week 1 - Week 16

Thanks to the sensation of fullness offered by the Elipse Balloon, patients eat less. They may also learn to eat healthy meals in smaller proportions. The follow-up with their care team is made constantly thanks to Allurion’s connected scale and app.

Week 16

After four months, the balloon automatically empties and passes naturally without the need for any medical procedure*. Patients have regained control over their eating habits and should continue to make healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices for long-term weight management.
