ReShape provides a new option for adults with a BMI of 30-40 and a related health condition who haven’t succeeded at diet and exercise alone, and do not want or do not qualify for bariatric surgery. Many people within the BMI range of 30-40 do not think of themselves as obese, and therefore may not consider themselves candidates for a procedure like ReShape. In reality, these patients are technically classified as mild to moderately obese and may be in need of additional tools, beyond diet and exercise alone, to help them lose weight.
The uninflated balloons are placed in the stomach during an outpatient procedure that typically takes 20 minutes using conscious sedation (light anesthesia). While the patient is under sedation, an endoscope is inserted through the mouth into the stomach. The uninflated balloons are advanced over a guide wire and are placed precisely in the stomach. Each balloon is inflated with saline and independently sealed. The procedure is completely non-surgical; there are no incisions, sutures or scars.
After six months, the patient returns, and the balloon is removed during a second outpatient endoscopic procedure that typically takes 20 minutes. The balloon is completely drained in a controlled manner. A standard tool is used to securely capture the deflated dual balloon and the device is removed through the mouth.
During the six months the dual balloon is in place and for the six months after, patients receive nutrition and exercise coaching from allied health professionals at their ReShape physician’s office. Patients meet with their coaches in person once a month to track their weight loss and discuss their progress.
ReShape, which includes the advanced dual balloon technology and 12 months of premium coaching and support, is available on a self-pay basis to patients and cost will vary by healthcare provider and market. Contact us to discuss costs. Since there is no surgery involved, it is far less expensive than you may imagine.
