Steps to weight loss success
Kick-start your weight loss journey
It’s time to say goodbye to traditional, ineffective weight-loss programmes. Speak with your doctor about having an assessment to find out if the Elipse Programme might work for you. Your doctor will be able to answer any questions you may have and help prepare you for your balloon placement.
Get ready to take a "honeymoon from hunger"|footnote-86|
Change your lifestyle and your waistline. Meet with your nutritionist to devise a healthy eating plan that you can start in the lead-up to your balloon placement. Your healthcare team will also discuss with you how you can plan ahead to increase the chances of any weight you lose staying off beyond your 16-week balloon placement.
Have your balloon placed
Your Elipse Balloon will be placed during a 20-minute consultation with your doctor.|footnote-89| Once the balloon is inflated, it stays in your stomach for approximately 16 weeks. During this period, you can use your body composition scale and Health Tracker linked to your app to follow your progress. Don’t forget to continue your healthy lifestyle plan to help prepare your body for life after the balloon.
Get back to being you
After approximately 16 weeks, the balloon automatically deflates and passes out naturally.|asterisk-293| However, the Elipse Programme continues with another one month of support from your doctor and nutritionist.|asterisk-307| No weight-loss program is a magic bullet, however if you continue to follow your healthy lifestyle plan, you will have the best chance of ensuring that the weight you’ve lost stays off.|asterisk-307|
A temporary balloon does not mean temporary weight loss
No weight loss programme is a magic bullet. An effective programme is based on good healthcare and good science. Elipse is just that: it is a proven programme that takes a holistic approach to losing weight. It combines a high-tech balloon solution with a full package of support to help you develop good lifestyle habits that can remain with you long after your balloon has gone. One clinical study with 509 patients showed that 95% of average weight loss with Elipse can be sustained at 12 month follow up.|footnote-4147|
