More People Turning To Bariatric Procedures

Largely due to the innovative gastric balloon treatments available in Brooklyn, NY, the bariatric surgery device market may eclipse $2.8 billion a year by 2022 in the United States alone.

Nonsurgical procedures like ReShape have a stamp of approval from government regulators, because they virtually eliminate the risk of infection and other serious side-effects. In recent years, New Zealand and Canada have both launched aggressive anti-obesity programs, imploring citizens to seek nonsurgical alternatives. Consumers are attracted to the dual gastric balloon treatments available in Brooklyn, NY as well, because as compared to gastric bypass surgery, such procedures have a lower cost in both time and money, not to mention a shorter hospital stay.

Observers also expect significant industry growth in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

ReShape v. Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery is an excellent alternative for people who are morbidly obese (BMI of at least 40 and/or 100 lbs. above ideal body weight). Bypass is an extreme measure for an extreme condition and normally costs up to $25,000, or even more in some areas. Moreover, while many insurance companies offer at least partial coverage, most policies exclude weight loss surgery, unless the person pays an additional premium and sits through a waiting period.

While gastric bypass sets the stage for dramatic weight loss and significant weight loss is quite common, there are no guarantees in this area. Furthermore, post-surgical patients are largely on their own when making necessary diet and exercise changes. Finally, there is a risk of serious side effects, which can sometimes even be fatal.

FDA-approved ReShape is a completely different weight loss treatment program for people in Brooklyn, NY, and not just because it is nonsurgical, noninvasive, and almost free from side effects.

  • The doctor sends two tiny balloons into the stomach, so most people feel full while eating less.
  • The balloons contain a safe and nontoxic dye, so in the unlikely event that they leak, you will know straightaway.
  • The ReShape program includes a professional lifestyle coach who provides tips and motivation.
  • The balloons come out after six months, but the coaching is available for a fully year.

Most people experience some mild stomach discomfort for a few days after the initial procedure, lose up to 40 pounds, and are able to keep it off.
