Benefits of the Elipse Program

The Elipse Program : kick-start your weight loss journey.

Allurion’s flagship product – the Elipse Balloon – is the first and only gastric balloon that does not require endoscopy, surgery or anesthesia for placement or removal*. The Elipse Balloon fills the stomach and helps the user feel full and eat less. It is swallowed during a brief office visit, and four months later, passes naturally without the need for a removal procedure. It is part of a 6-month comprehensive weight-loss program that also includes counseling and coaching from a physician and trained nutritionist, a Bluetooth-connected scale and a mobile app that allows you to track your progress.

1. Your physician gives you medical clearance to receive the balloon and monitors your health throughout the program.

2. The Elipse Balloon is placed in your stomach by your physician during a brief outpatient visit that does not include endoscopy, anesthesia or surgery*.

3. Following your physician’s approval, there are no restrictions on physical activities while the Elipse Balloon is in your stomach.

4. The balloon enables you to feel full with smaller portions, helping you lose weight without experiencing the hunger of extreme dieting.

5. A wireless scale provides data to your care team to help you stay on track.

6. In addition to oversight from your physician, the Elipse Program includes six months of dietary coaching from a trained nutritionist.
