sequential Elipse placements

What if I want to lose more than 10 to 15 kgs with Elipse?

It is possible to have another placement after your first Elipse balloon has passed, this is called a sequential balloon.|asterisk-3524| |footnote-4099| Sequential balloon treatment is safe and effective if additional weight loss is recommended by your doctor. ​

In a study of 42 patients, the average weight loss with 2 sequential Elipse Balloons was 22kgs and 22.8% total body weight loss. The maximum weight loss achieved was 48kgs and 40.9% body weight loss in 12 months!|footnote-4101|

|asterisk-88|Results may vary from one patient to another. A small percentage of patients don’t respond to the treatment.

|asterisk-293|In rare cases, the Elipse Balloon may require endoscopic or surgical intervention for removal. In rare cases, the empty balloon may be vomited instead of passing through the GI tract.

|asterisk-3524|Eligibility for a sequential Elipse balloon is evaluated at the time prior to each placement to ensure you still meet requirements
