About the Procedure
We combine the six-month balloon use with comprehensive nutritional counseling and medical support to create your path to success.
With ReShape, two connected balloons are placed temporarily in the stomach through the mouth via a brief, non-surgical, endoscopic procedure that is performed in an outpatient setting. The entire procedure usually only takes 20 minutes and patients go home the same day. The saline-filled balloon is about the size of a grapefruit and remains in the stomach for approximately six months. The balloons act as a temporary means of curbing appetite and helping patients lose weight.
After six months, the balloon is removed via an endoscopic outpatient procedure. Comprehensive medical/dietary monitoring and intensive nutritional therapy combine with the balloon for the first six months and then continue for an additional six months after removal, for a total of a one-year process towards your better health.
ReShape is an FDA-approved and scientifically proven weight loss product that is not surgery (involves no cutting). Until now, only bariatric surgery has been proven to provide durable weight loss for people living with obesity.
The dual-balloon provides a new option for people seeking assistance with their weight management goals. Studies show the balloon to be as much as 3 times as effective as the traditional exercise/nutrition/pharmacotherapy in use today!*
For those people who do not need the power of traditional bariatric surgery, don’t qualify for bariatric surgery or prefer to try a non-permanent and non-surgical procedure, the gastric balloon procedure may be the right choice.
