How the ReShape Balloon Works
The dual balloons are gently inserted together through the mouth (endoscopically). Your procedure will be performed by a highly trained physician in about 20 minutes in an outpatient setting. During the procedure, you will be comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. Since there is no surgery, the procedure does not require incisions or permanent changes to your anatomy.
Because the ReShape Procedure is non-surgical, the recovery is much shorter than with traditional weight loss surgery. The length of time it takes to adapt to the balloon varies from person to person. Many people return to work after just a few days.
The removal of the balloons is very similar to the insertion. The balloons are first deflated, then gently removed together through the mouth (endoscopically). You will again be comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. Your procedure can be performed in about 20 minutes in an outpatient setting.
