ALLURION (FORMERLY ELIPSE) SWALLOWABLE BALLOON
Simply swallow a small capsule and take a drink. Once inside the stomach, the capsule is filled with saline through a probe and becomes a balloon that fills about 70% of the stomach. The doctor takes the probe out, checks everything with ultrasound, and you start losing weight. After 4 months, the balloon dissolves by itself and spontaneously emerges out of the body. In addition, the entire weight loss process with an Elipse (formerly Elipse) balloon is conducted under the guidance of a nutritional therapist. You also get free smart scale, so you can easily check your progress at home.
ORBERA GASTRIC BALLOON
This has been the world leader in weight loss balloons for more than 20 years. It has been shown to help patients lose 3 times more weight than diet and exercise. It takes up just enough space in the stomach to help control portion sizes. The released balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth and then filled with saline. It is gently removed after 6 to 12 months without surgery. During this time you lose weight and simultaneously, thanks to the support of a team of experts, you have enough time to change your lifestyle and maintain your weight.
MEDSIL AND SPATZ BALLOONS
An empty balloon is inserted into the stomach during a gastroscopy. Using a probe, the gastric balloon is then filled with saline, filling about 70% of the stomach. You start to eat less and lose weight due to feeling full. The entire insertion process is controlled by a doctor through an endoscopic tower. After 6–12 months, your doctor will endoscopically remove the Medsil or Spatz balloon from your body.
