"Elipse has helped me to reprogramme my mind on what I should eat. It's enabled me to carry out everyday tasks and given me my life back. I had taken on a seasonal job as Father Christmas over the last few years for a very large organisation - you can imagine my delight in December when I was asked if I would like to wear a fat suit, as I was looking so thin!"
Will it be obvious to others that I have the Elipse balloon in my stomach?
The Elipse Programme is a discrete experience. Unless you tell people, no one will know you have had the balloon placed. There is no need to tell family, friends or colleagues about Elipse, unless of course you want to!More questions answered
