RESHAPETM WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM
- FDA approved gastric balloon procedure
- Safe and effective
This system may be right for someone who needs to lose weight to better comply with prescribed diets or to jump-start massive weight loss for severely obese people. This procedure is also used to help patients achieve a safer weight before undergoing surgery. It can also be used by people who want to lose weight before an upcoming, once-in-a-lifetime event, such as a wedding or high school reunion.
WHAT IS RESHAPE™?
- Dual weight loss balloon system with comprehensive coaching support to help you lose weight and keep it off.
- The dual balloons take up more space and conform to your stomach shape.
- The balloons are inserted into your stomach and filled with saline (salt water) and will remain in place for no more than six months.
- The safe design eliminates balloon migration to the intestines in the unlikely event that it deflates before it is removed.
- The procedure is non-surgical and most patients resume a full, unrestricted lifestyle within two weeks of balloon implant.
- You feel fuller and have greater portion control, which could result in weight loss of up to 80 pounds in six months.
- Coaching continues for six months after removal of the balloons, and most patients experience continued weight loss.
IS RESHAPE™ RIGHT FOR YOU?
Reshape is a great weight-loss option if you:
- Have a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40 with a co-morbidity.
- Had no previous weight loss surgery.
- Are willing to make changes to support a healthy lifestyle.
- Are at least 18 years old.
THE PLACEMENT AND REMOVAL PROCEDURES
- This non-surgical procedure is performed while you are under a mild sedative. We gently insert the weight loss balloons through your mouth (endoscopically), with no incisions or scars.
- The balloons are then gently filled with saline until they are the appropriate size for your stomach.
- The procedure takes about 20 minutes and you return home the same day.
- After six months, the balloon is deflated and removed through another non-surgical procedure under a mild sedative.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- On average, patients lose 2 times the weight loss compared to diet and exercise alone.
- Weight loss continues after removal, due to your adjusted eating and activity habits.
- Long term impact will depend on your continued lifestyle choices.
