ReShape Balloon Procedure
Consider ReShape, the Two Balloon Weight Loss Option that is:
- Non-Anatomy Altering
- Life Changing!
ReShape is a gastric balloon procedure that is minimally invasive, utilizing endoscopic surgery to place two medical grade, saline-filled balloons inside your stomach. There are no incisions, staples, or scars and the balloons are removed after only 6 months. ReShape does not require rerouting of the digestive system and does not alter your stomach or intestinal tract.
What is the Procedure Like?
During insertion of the balloons, you will be lightly and comfortably sedated. Your doctor will use an endoscope to route two deflated balloons through your mouth, down your throat, and into your stomach. After the balloons are placed, they are inflated using a safe, sterilized saline solution, and the endoscope is removed. Because the balloons conform to the natural shape of the stomach, most patients don’t even feel them. Insertion of the ReShape balloon is performed during an outpatient procedure and takes only about 20 minutes.
How Does the ReShape Balloon System Work?
ReShape works so well because the dual balloon system takes up more space in your stomach than a single balloon, helping you feel full faster and after eating less food. Patients who have undergone this gastric balloon surgery have lost up to 80 pounds or more in only six months! Once you have adjusted to the balloons, there is no limitation of activity. In fact, you will be encouraged to try new activities that support your healthy new lifestyle.
What happens after six months?
After 180 days, the balloons will be deflated and gently removed endoscopically. Their removal is similar to the insertion process and is performed under light sedation, in about 20 minutes. Your weight loss and maintenance plan will be ongoing, and most people become so motivated that they lose even more weight after the balloons are removed.
