The Elipse Balloon Weight Loss Program from Allurion
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 9 July 2020: Allurion Technologies, an established leader in the development of innovative, proven, and trusted weight loss experiences, developed the first gastric balloon to lose weight requiring no endoscopy or anesthesia to place or remove it. The balloon is swallowed with a capsule and filled with liquid in a 20 minutes procedure at the doctor's office.
The Elipse balloon is designed to help patients always feel full, which helps them to eat less food without the feeling of hunger that accompanies most of the diets. This encourages them to control the amount of food they eat.
Mrs. Cynthia Bou Khalil, Nutritional consultant at Allurion Technologies says:”The program includes ongoing support with a dietitian throughout the program to improve eating quality, choose healthy meals and change eating habits.At the beginning of the program, you will receive a 'smart' scale linked to a mobile application aimed for communicating between you and the doctor and enabling your team to monitor the progress you are making. After four months, the balloon opens automatically, empties, and exits the body naturally.”
Mrs. Cynthia Bou Khalil The added: “Elipse program is right for you if you suffer from a significant increase in weight and have a Body Mass index (BMI) that exceeds 27 and suffers from repeated unsuccessful diets.With the help of your balloon care team and the feeling of fullness, you can change your eating habits and regain control of your health.
Successive clinical studies have shown that the stomach balloon provides the possibility of losing more weight compared to diets and exercising alone.”
After six months, people with intragastric balloons in their stomachs lost more than twice their excess weight, compared to people who tried to lose weight under a medically supervised diet and exercise program alone, according to new research from a randomized clinical trial done by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
