Pioneer of the Revolutionary ReShape Procedure
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 considered 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.
Only the ReShape Procedure places two connected, medical-grade and saline-filled balloons inside your stomach for six months. The ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon is designed to take up room in your stomach, which creates a feeling of fullness and may help you feel satisfied with less food. The dual balloon is designed to conform to the curvature of the stomach for comfort, and also includes an anti-migration feature, so if one balloon deflates, the second balloon prevents the device from passing into the intestines for increased safety.
One Year of Comprehensive Coaching and Support
ReShape combines the portion-controlling benefits of the balloons with comprehensive coaching to change your eating habits, enhance your physical fitness, and help you adopt a healthy lifestyle that supports long-term success. While the balloons are inside your stomach, you will meet (monthly) with coaches and receive personalized nutrition, fitness, and behavior guidance to help maximize your success. After the balloons are removed, you will continue to meet with your coaching team to make sure that you maintain your healthy lifestyle to reach your goals. With ongoing coaching support, most patients maintain their weight loss or continue to lose weight.
