The ReShape™ Procedure is a new, FDA approved, non-surgical approach to weight loss that is proven to help people achieve and maintain significant weight loss. It is completely different from any diet, program, or procedure you may have tried or consider before. The ReShape™ Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower BMI (between 30–40). ReShape™ may be a good weight loss option for people who do not qualify or do not want surgery.
With ReShape™, two connected balloons filled with saline (salt water) are placed temporarily inside your stomach in an outpatient medical setting. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes while you are comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. An endoscope is used to insert the balloons into the stomach, and saline is used to inflate the balloons when they are properly positioned. Once the balloons are inflated, the endoscope is removed and the insertion procedure is complete. The balloons remain in the stomach for 6 months. When filled with saline, the balloons help you lose weight and encourage healthy eating habits by taking up room in your stomach, so there is less space for food. You can still eat the healthy foods you enjoy, but the balloons act as built-in portion control, helping you feel full and less hungry. After six months, the balloons are deflated and removed during a similar endoscopic procedure.
Life-Changing Weight Loss, Without Surgery
ReShape™ is a proven way to achieve significant weight loss. In a recent study, patients lost more than twice as much weight with ReShape™ than with diet and exercise alone.1 Most ReShape™ patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed. ReShape™ is a non-surgical procedure. If you do not want or do not qualify for surgery, the ReShape™ Procedure may be a good option for you.
