ReShape™ Dual Weight Loss Balloon

The ReShape™ dual gastric balloon system is a nonsurgical weight loss option that may be ideal for people who have been unsuccessful at losing weight through traditional diet and exercise programs.

About ReShape™ Gastric Balloon

The ReShape™ Dual Weight Loss Balloon System is composed of two connected silicone gastric balloons that are inserted nonsurgically. Placement and removal of the ReShape Balloon System does not require incisions or alterations to the digestive tract. In a procedure lasting about twenty minutes, the patient is lightly sedated and the tethered balloons are inserted into the stomach via the mouth. Once confirmed to be in the stomach, they are then inflated with a saline solution. The balloons are left in place for six months where they serve to curb appetite and encourage portion control.

The ReShape™ Gastric Balloon System is accompanied by a year of weight loss support. Using an exclusive patient portal full of resources and recipes, a wireless scale, and coaching from a team of weight loss professionals, the ReShape program teaches patients the healthy lifestyle habits needed to lose weight. After six months, the paired balloons are removed in a second endoscopic procedure. Although the balloons have been removed, the coaching program will continue for another six months to help patients maintain weight loss.*

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?*

ReShape has been clinically proven to help people lose weight, with some patients losing up to 81 pounds in six months. Patients who chose ReShape lost, on average, more than twice the weight of people who lost weight using solely diet and exercise. Additionally, the majority of ReShape patients were able to maintain weight loss after the balloons were removed.

What to Expect After the Procedure*

After the ReShape outpatient procedure, patients are monitored and typically sent home within a few hours. Most ReShape patients are able to resume regular activities within a few days. Patients should expect a period of adjustment to the balloons that will vary by individual. Potential side effects include mild nausea, discomfort, and vomiting and will be monitored by Dr. Snow.
