At Riverpark Weight Loss, we believe in a full-circle approach to weight loss. Not only can we jump start your weight loss process, but we invest in you for the long-term. Our new ReShape Weight Loss procedure includes one-on-one coaching to help you keep the weight off.

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.

Patients also have access to the ReShape Patient Portal, a comprehensive tool that has everything you need to track your success. The portal includes: weight logging, food logging, activity tracking, goal setting, articles and recipes, community forums, important reminders, and the ability to easily share data with your doctor.

Riverpark Weight Loss is a provider of the innovative non-surgical weight loss program for the Louisiana and Mississippi region. This safe, new ground-breaking weight control program features the exclusive dual-balloon technology.

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.

The balloon placement is completed endoscopically, without surgery, in an outpatient setting.  There are no incisions, scars, or permanent changes to your digestive system. The procedure is completely reversible, and patients are often able to return to work and normal activities in just a few days.

The balloons are a weight loss jump-start. Many patients experience rapid weight loss initially, providing the motivation required to keep going and make the changes stick. You also receive a full year of personalized coaching to support your success and help you make the changes that will encourage a lifetime of healthy living.

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. The ReShape Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower BMI (between 30–40). In a recent study, patients lost more than twice as much weight with ReShape than with diet and exercise alone.1 Most ReShape patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.

With ReShape, two connected balloons filled with saline (salt water) are placed temporarily inside your stomach in an outpatient medical setting. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes while you are comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. The balloons remain in the stomach for six months, helping you lose weight and encourage healthy eating habits by taking up room in your stomach. You can still eat the healthy foods you enjoy, but the balloons act as built-in portion control, helping you feel full and less hungry.

The balloons are a weight loss jump-start, and are only part of the procedure. You also receive a full year of personalized coaching to support your success and help you make the changes that will encourage a lifetime of healthy living. 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.

ReShape may be a good weight loss option for people who do not want or do not qualify for surgery.
