What is the ReShape™ Balloon System?
The ReShape™ Balloon is a cutting-edge and popular way to combat obesity through a non-surgical procedure that inserts saline-filled balloons into your stomach. This temporary system typically stays in place for about six months, allowing you to feel more full while eating less, and allowing you to lose weight that has persisted despite proper diet and exercise. With the ReShape™ Balloon, obesity doesn’t have to be an uphill battle any longer.
What are the Benefits of the ReShape™ Balloon System?
The ReShape™ Balloon is clinically-tested and proven to help patients lose weight and keep it off for the long-term along with positive lifestyle changes. With no surgery or scarring, no permanent digestive system changes, and a high success rate, more people are turning to the ReShape™ Balloon than ever before to fight obesity and improve their lives. You’ll be able to eat less and yet feel full, allowing you to drop pounds without the difficult discomfort of a low-calorie diet alone. Featuring an advanced design with medical-grade silicone, this dual-balloon system can make a world of difference in just six months’ time. Improve your physical appearance, health, and fitness level with this cutting-edge, safe, and trusted weight loss solution.
Who is a Candidate for the ReShape™ Balloon System?
If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 30 and 40, you may be the right candidate for the ReShape™ Balloon System. It is important to remember that the weight you lose through this system will be kept off in the future by your willingness to commit to healthy living. Proper diet and exercise are key in maintaining the slimmer figure that the ReShape™ Balloon helps you to achieve in the six months of appetite and portion control aided by the temporary implants. If you are motivated to shed weight and keep it off with the help of a highly effective jump-start to your new life, have had no previous weight loss surgery, and meet the health requirements, the ReShape™ Balloon may be just the right procedure for you.
What is the Procedure for the ReShape™ Balloon System?
In one procedure that typically lasts only ten to fifteen minutes, two deflated balloons are endoscopically placed down into your stomach through your mouth. Once in place, they are then inflated and filled with a safe saline solution to take up room in your stomach and aid you in eating less and still feeling full. The balloons contour to the shape of your stomach for your comfort and ReShape™ has the improved advantage of utilizing two balloons with a larger capacity than other balloon systems for optimal weight loss. One treatment period is usually six months in length, and then the balloons are removed just as easily as they were placed.
