Swallowable gastric balloon Elipse is a new generation gastric balloon that is ingested with water and does not require endoscopy and anesthesia. The effect of the elipse gastric balloon is the same as standard gastric balloons, but the elipse balloon has many advantages. As with all gastric balloons, the ingestible gastric balloon takes up space in your stomach, helping to achieve weight loss. Gastric balloons, which allow you to get hungry late and easily saturate with the volume it occupies in the stomach by slowing the passage of nutrients and feeling satiety, are the most useful option in the treatment of non-surgical obesity.
