Weight Loss With No Strings Attached
Weight loss surgery is painful and expensive and introduces many risks. But did you know weight loss is achievable without surgery?
A new weight loss tool is now available on the market which does away with surgery and anaesthesia and removes the need to place artificial objects via invasive tubes into the stomach.
The Elipse Gastric Balloon is a new device that is swallowed as a capsule with a sip of water. The capsule is attached to a long spaghetti-like tube used to inflate the balloon inside the stomach. Once inflated, the gastric balloon takes up much of the space inside the stomach, thus reducing the stomach’s effective capacity.
The balloon works by reducing meal sizes by promoting a feeling of fulness much earlier than you would without it. Studies suggest that up to 10 to 12 kilograms of weight loss over 16 weeks is achievable.
Numerous avenues of support are available to aid you in your weight loss journey with the gastric balloon. Access to dieticians, a gut health book, a weight loss journal, and membership to a community support group are provided to help you manage the challenges along the way.
If you are struggling with weight management issues and wish to get rid of those extra kilos, please consider the Elipse Gastric Balloon with Melbourne Gastro Surgery. No strings attached!
