Quick Facts :


Allurion Elipse Gastric Balloon is a modern and revolutionary treatment option to deal with morbid obesity. It is a safe and minimally invasive technique that doctors widely recommend for those patients who haven’t been able to achieve weight loss with a diet plan and exercises.

Before the Procedure

Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Girish explains the whole process and carries out a medical diagnosis to ensure that you are suitable for the procedure. During this initial consultation, he will discuss a few things with you, such as:

In addition, 1-2 weeks before the procedure, you will be administered medication to keep acidity in check. Also, a day before the ellipse balloon placement, you will be asked to be only on a liquid.

During the Procedure

The treatment takes place on an outpatient basis in only 15 minutes approximately. It doesn’t require endoscopy or anesthesia for either placement or removal of the balloon. 

  1. In the first step, you will be asked to swallow a capsule that contains the collapsed Allurion balloon and a catheter. Though most people easily manage to swallow the capsule, if you face any problems, your doctor will help to place the capsule in your stomach with the help of a thin wire (stylet). 
  2. Next, an X-ray of your stomach is taken to confirm that the balloon is properly positioned in the stomach.
  3. The balloon is filled with 550* ml of purified water through the catheter.
  4. Once again, a second X-ray is taken to ensure the balloon has inflated correctly.

After the Procedure :

Most people can get back to their regular activities within 2-3 days. Still, some may experience gastric discomfort such as nausea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting after the balloon is placed. In that case, you will be prescribed medications to control these symptoms.

Aftercare :

The general recommendations after the procedure include the following:

  • Stay on a liquid diet for 2-3 days. After that, you will be required to plan three small meals and two small snacks daily.
  • Avoid any excessive activities for strenuous exercises.

How is the Elipse balloon removed?

The Allurion gastric balloon stays in your stomach for approximately four months. After that, the balloon valve opens up, allowing it to deflate and be expelled naturally through the digestive tract. In other words, the balloon naturally passes out of the body without any removal procedure.  

“It is important to note that after the balloon is passed out, you must take care of your diet and exercise to avoid weight gain. This will ensure retaining the lost weight for a long time.”– Dr. Girish Juneja says.
