ReShapeTM, a Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure

The ReShape Procedure is a new, FDA approved, non-surgical approach to weight loss that is proven to help people achieve and maintain significant results. The ReShape Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower body mass index (BMI) (between 30 and 40). In a recent study, patients lost more than twice as much weight with ReShape than with diet and exercise alone.

With ReShape, two balloons filled with saline (salt water) are placed temporarily inside your stomach to help you feel less hungry, so you feel satisfied with smaller portions. The balloons are a weight loss jump-start and are only part of the procedure. Most ReShape patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.

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.

If you do not want or do not qualify for surgery, the ReShape Procedure may be a good option for you.
