Dr. Gulden Balli Explains Gastric Balloon Operation
The Elipse gastric balloon
The Elipse Balloon imitates weight loss surgery with a gastric balloon, without the need for any invasive procedure. According to its creators, it helps patients lose up to 15 pounds in a few months.
The stages of the new method
The treatment lasts six months. The first month is a clear guide to lifestyle, that is, how you can get back on the right eating path and control your eating habits.
The next step involves swallowing a gastric balloon. Although it may sound intimidating, all the patient needs to do is swallow a normal-sized capsule, which contains an inflated balloon along with a thin tube.
The balloon is filled with liquid, creating an instant feeling that you are. Full.
The idea is to make the patient feel like he does not need to eat so much food, because his brain receives signals from the stomach, that it is not empty!
The whole process takes only 20 minutes.
Four months later, the balloon deflates on its own and passes through the gastrointestinal tract before being expelled.
What the creators of the new gastric balloon say
“We found that patients lose an average of 13-14 pounds,” said Samuel Levy, co-founder of Allurion Technologies, which created the Elipse Balloon.
The Elipse gastric balloon could be part of a “new generation” solution to obesity, said Shaw Somers, president of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society.
In particular, he said: “By bridging the gap between surgery, diet and exercise, the Elipse program helps patients modify their eating habits and lifestyle to achieve long-term goals in weight loss.”
