What is the Elipse Gastric Balloon?

The Elipse balloon is the world’s first swallowable, “procedureless” gastric balloon.

It requires no surgery, endoscopy* or anaesthetic for placement or removal.

The balloon is a soft, polyurethane balloon packaged into a swallowable capsule attached to a thin catheter or tube. Once the balloon is swallowed and correctly placed, the balloon is filled with 550ml of fluid through the catheter. Once fully filled, the Elipse balloon is approximately the size of a grapefruit and will help you feel fuller for longer. After approximately 16 weeks, the Elipse balloon deflates automatically and is passed naturally in the toilet.

Elipse Gastric Balloon Program Costs

The Elipse balloon is a procedureless intragastric balloon designed to help you reduce your food intake by taking up space in your stomach. This helps to curb your hunger allowing you to feel fuller for longer. Insertion is performed at our partner imaging centre and takes about 20 minutes under the guidance of our team.Currently, insertion of intragastric balloons is not covered by Private Health Insurance or Medicare. HealthyWeight Australia do however, offer affordable pricing options, keeping with our mission of “affordable medical care to patients”.
