Elipse Weight Loss Balloon

The Weight Loss Balloon and Elipse Programme

Book your appointment

Elipse by Allurion is the world's first and only weight loss balloon that requires NO surgery, NO endoscopy* and NO anaesthesia. Get it here with professional support along your journey.


Head towards a new life and lose your excess weight without surgery! The Elipse gastric balloon is swallowable, just like a vitamin pill. It takes just 20 minutes in a short clinical appointment with our GP.  The balloon is based within the capsule that you swallow and once it reaches the stomach, it is inflated by the GP, expanding to take up space in your stomach to make you feel full and eat less.

The Elipse Balloon does not interfere with your digestion, and stays within your stomach for around 4 months. Then it self-epties and can be passed naturally without any need to have it surgically removed. This is revolutionary gastric balloon and takes away all those extra risks, discomfort and inconvenience of having to plan a surgical weight loss procedure.


We know what patients want

Average weight loss of 13-15kgs (2 - 2.5st) in 16 weeks. Individual results may vary.

Beyond the balloon, the Elipse Programme includes GP and Dietician support.

The balloon is swallable, meaning a walk-in procedure that is fast and requires no surgery.

Efficacy and safety of the Elipse weight-loss balloon has been demonstrated in multiple clinical studies **


How Does The Elipse Balloon Work?

The Elipse Weight Loss Programme is a proven walk-in procedure without any need for surgery, endoscopy or anaesthesia. Here is how the programme can work for you:

  • 1 - Lose weight without the hunger pangs and frustration of most diets. You can benefit from average weight loss of 13-15kgs which is around 2 - 2.5 st, and feel improved quality of life.
  • 2 - Get multidisciplinary support during your weight loss journey. Ongoing support from your medical and nutrition team, and access to wireless monitoring with the smart scales and mobile phone app.
  • 3 - Discover a breakthrough in simplicity -  Enjoy the privacy of an outpatient appointment, no one will need to know! Placement of the balloon only takes a 20-minute procedure, and after the 4 month programme, the balloon self-empties and passess natually with no need for any further procedure.

The Elipse weight loss balloon must be used in conjunction with a supervised nutrition and behaviour modification program. At Pall Mall Medical, we will advise you on the best follow-up programme and its duration to maximise your weight loss results. 

Excess weight seriously impacts you health, not just the way we look and feel. Losing weight is also a great way to support your health in the long term by improving your risk of suffering from depression or developing a co-morbidity such as heart disease, joint problems, high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes.
