Reshape Gastric Balloon

Reshape

For patients who are overweight or obese, the gastric balloon is a popular weight loss alternative to going under the knife. The Reshape gastric balloon has helped many patients achieve life-changing weight loss results, with no surgery required. At New York Bariatric Group, we offer this proven, nonsurgical treatment to help jumpstart your weight loss journey.

What Is a Gastric Balloon?

A gastric balloon is a non-surgical, non-invasive, temporary weight loss tool that encourages you to eat healthier portions for a six-month period. This new technology has helped patients lose up to three times as much weight as with diet and exercise alone.

In a non-invasive procedure that requires only minutes to perform, the surgeon inserts a soft silicone gastric balloon through the mouth and throat and places it into the stomach. The gastric balloon is filled with sterile saline solution and remains in place for six months, taking up room in the stomach, slowing digestion, and encouraging portion control and weight loss.


What Is Different About the Reshape Gastric Balloon?

Reshape is a dual weight loss balloon. This procedure jumpstarts weight loss by placing two, saline-filled, medical-grade silicone balloons in the stomach in a single procedure with no X-rays required. Reshape has more capacity than other gastric balloons, taking up more space in the stomach for superior weight loss results.

This treatment prioritizes safety by minimizing the risk of migration to the intestinal tract. It also improves comfort for the patient by conforming to the natural shape of the stomach. Unlike bariatric surgery, the Reshape balloon is a temporary treatment that does not permanently alter the digestive system.


What Happens in the Reshape Gastric Balloon Procedure?

At New York Bariatric Group, our surgeon will gently insert the Reshape gastric balloons endoscopically through the mouth and throat and into the stomach, with no surgery or scars. Sterile saline solution is used to inflate the balloons, and the endoscope is removed.

The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to perform, with no hospital stay required. You will be comfortably sedated under light anesthesia during the procedure. You can return home after the treatment, already on your way to achieving your weight loss goals.

The Reshape balloons remain in the stomach, accelerating your weight loss for six months. After the six-month period, they are deflated and removed from the stomach in a similar endoscopic procedure. Both the insertion and removal are nonsurgical procedures that are performed on an outpatient basis and do not alter the digestive system as occurs with bariatric surgery.

Reshape Gastric Balloon FAQ

Reshape gastric balloons are a new, FDA-approved, nonsurgical weight loss treatment that has been proven to help patients achieve and maintain significant weight loss. At New York Bariatric Group, we are pleased to offer this effective, noninvasive treatment option. We have provided answers to some commonly asked questions about Reshape Gastric Balloons.

How safe is the Reshape gastric balloon procedure?

Reshape has been studied in clinical trials for safety and effectiveness and granted FDA approval. When inflated, the balloons consist of medical grade silicone and sterile saline solution, both of which materials are safe for the human body. The special design of the Reshape gastric balloons was developed to improve safety and comfort by ensuring that the balloons rest comfortably in the stomach and do not travel to the intestine.

Is there downtime after the Reshape balloons are inserted?

There is very little downtime with the Reshape procedure. Most patients are able to drive, walk, and perform routine tasks soon after the balloons are placed in the stomach. However, as you may experience some nausea and vomiting after the balloons are inserted, we recommend that you take a few days off work to give your body a chance to adjust.

How much weight can I expect to lose with Reshape gastric balloons?

The amount of weight you lose with Reshape gastric balloons will depend on your level of commitment in following the program. The Reshape program is a tool to help you make healthy lifestyle changes.

Results will vary from patient to patient. In clinical trials, patients who were committed to the program lost up to 72 pounds over a 12-month period.

Can Reshape dual balloons be left in the stomach for more than six months?

It is important that you come into our office to have Reshape balloons removed promptly after six months have passed, because the treatment has only been tested and approved for six months. After the balloons are removed endoscopically, you will still have coaching and support for an additional six months to help you lose any remaining weight and keep it off.

Do most patients keep the weight off after Reshape gastric balloons are removed?

In a clinical trial of the Reshape weight loss treatment, patients were followed for one year. Two-thirds of the patients continued to lose weight after the Reshape balloons were removed from the stomach. Women and men who are committed to the program, attend their coaching sessions, and adopt healthy eating habits will have a much better chance of keeping the weight off after the balloons are removed.
