About the ReShape™ Gastric Balloon
The ReShape™ gastric balloon system uses two, connected gastric balloons to encourage weight loss. Patients lose weight when the balloons take up space in the stomach, so less food is needed to feel full. The program is also accompanied by an online portal to help patients maintain lifelong weight loss.
How Does ReShape™ Work?
In a quick outpatient procedure, two balloons are inserted through the mouth using an endoscope while the patient is under twilight sedation and the balloons are then inflated with saline. The balloons are attached to each other and stay in the stomach for six months. During the time they are in the stomach, patients will make diet and lifestyle changes as recommended by our doctors. After six months, they are removed in another quick outpatient procedure.
Benefits of ReShape™
- Non-surgical The endoscopy to place and remove the balloons doesn’t use any sutures and uses only twilight sedation
- Reversible No permanent implants or digestive system adjustments
- Effective weight loss Gastric balloon patients lose, on average, more than twice as much weight than people using diet and exercise alone
