WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME USING GASTRIC BALLOON AT PRIME HEALTH
Would you like to lose weight and improve your health?
Do you want to make long term changes to your eating habits?
If you have struggled with yo-yo dieting in the past but would like to make long term changes to your health and body image, you may want to consider a gastric balloon.
Now available at Prime Health in Surrey, this revolutionary yet straightforward, non-invasive weight-loss method involves swallowing a gastric ‘pill’ which is inflated once in the stomach and remains there for up to four months. No endoscopy, no anaesthesia, no sedation- just results.
With the balloon in place, you will feel full after a small portion and stay satisfied for longer, and, supported with medical and nutritional advice you will be enabled to lose weight and make long term healthy changes to your eating habits. At the end of this four-month period, the gastric balloon deflates and is passed naturally through the body – no need for any extraction procedure.
Prime Health we offer gastric balloons as part of a weight loss programme called the Elipse Program. This holistic weight loss programme encompasses treatment, medical and nutritional advice and support, and follow up care from a multi-disciplinary team that is highly experienced and specialist in weight loss surgery and treatments.
WHAT WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME IS AVAILABLE AT PRIME HEALTH?
At Prime Health, we are pleased to offer the Elipse Program, a four-month comprehensive weight-loss schedule that has been designed around the Elipse Balloon, a breakthrough gastric balloon weight-loss device.
As well as being assigned a dedicated and specialist Elipse healthcare team for the duration of your four-month programme, you will receive a “smart” connected scale and access to a mobile app that allows you to monitor and share your progress with your specialist healthcare team. This now comes with a FitBit style health tracker which also connects via the app.
A WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME FOCUSED ON SUCCESS
At Prime Health, the Elipse programme costs £3,800.
Headed up by the UK’s leading Elipse balloon specialist, our service aims to help you lose weight and make long term changes to your eating habits and lifestyle. The Elipse programme includes:
- A free no-obligation consultation and assessment with Mr Simon Monkhouse, a Consultant Surgeon with experience of over 300 Elipse placements
- A 20 minute outpatient visit to Prime Health for the balloon to be placed in your stomach. The placement is confirmed via an x-ray and the balloon is filled through a catheter with 550ml of water.
- Regular remote support and advice with experienced Elipse medical and nutritional weight loss professionals, one prior to gastric balloon placement, whilst the balloon is in place (up to 4 months) and one month after.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE ELIPSE PROGRAMME FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Placing the gastric balloon is very straightforward. It is swallowed during a brief outpatient visit to our centre in Weybridge, Surrey. No surgery or anaesthesia is required.* Additionally our team provide extensive support and advice to enable you to make long term changes to your health and lifestyle. The programme will help you kick start your weight loss journey by helping you feel full and, most importantly, encouraging the development of new eating habits. After approximately 16 weeks inside the stomach, a time-activated release valve on the gastric balloon opens, allowing it to empty and pass naturally without the need for a removal procedure*.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR FOR A GASTRIC BALLOON?
The Elipse Program at Prime Health is available to individuals aged over the age of 18 years old and with a minimum BMI of 27. A willingness to commit to the programme is key to long term successful weight loss.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT WILL I LOOSE WITH A GASTRIC BALLOON?
According to a recent clinical study, on average, after 16 weeks of following the Elipse Program, patients lost on average of 15kg (2-3stone). Results may vary from one participant to another.
