ReShape Gastric Balloon
The ReShape procedure is an aid to weight loss designed to help people struggling to lose weight with diet and exercise alone. It isn’t a cure for obesity, but rather provides an opportunity for you to develop new lifestyle skills and habits. The development of these skills and habits is what helps you lose weight, and then keep it off after the ReShape Dual Balloon is removed.
ReShape is not surgery and doesn’t permanently alter your stomach or digestive tract like gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery. It is a temporary, reversible procedure where balloons are placed in your stomach to take up space. This creates a feeling of fullness to help you eat less and lose weight. Patients often lose between 20 and 40 pounds with the help of the ReShape Dual Balloon, diet and exercise. It’s rapid weight loss without the surgery. After six months, the balloons are removed from your stomach.
Benefits of Comprehensive Coaching
One aspect of ReShape that is often overlooked by people considering the procedure is the year of comprehensive weight loss coaching. This complements the portion-controlling function of the ReShape Dual Balloon to help you achieve success. The coaching can help you improve your eating habits and physical fitness while you work toward a healthier lifestyle. You’ll get information about nutrition and fitness, along with personalized recommendations.
The ReShape procedure also gives you access to the ReShape Patient Portal. There you’ll find a variety of resources to support your journey and help you track your weight loss success. Some of the great tools available there include:
- Weight logging
- Activity tracking
- Food logging
- Articles and recipes
- Goal setting
- Community forums
