    The Christiana Institute of Advanced Surgery (CHRIAS) is a leading medical weight loss center in Delaware offering the most advanced and effective weight loss solutions, including The ReShape® Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure.

The Dual Gastric Balloon's innovative design uses two connected balloons to take up room in your stomach. When the balloons are in place, you’ll feel less hungry, so it’s easier to eat the healthy foods you enjoy in reasonable portions.

The balloons are FDA-approved and the dual design was developed to improve the safety of an intragastric balloon. This is a program that includes one year of comprehensive lifestyle coaching to achieve life-changing weight loss.

ReShape® is a new weight loss procedure that has been approved by the FDA. The safety and effectiveness of the ReShape® Procedure was studied in a clinical trial and was granted FDA approval in the United States. The balloons are made from medical grade silicone and filled with saline, materials that are safe for the human body. It has a special dual balloon design that was developed to improve the safety of an intragastric balloon. Safety is obviously a very important issue for our doctors as well as you.

ReShape® is a proven path to weight loss. In a recent study, patients lost more than two times more weight with ReShape® than with diet and exercise alone. And most patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.

It is designed for people who meet the following requirements:
  • BMI between 30 – 40 with a co-morbidity*
  • No previous weight loss surgery
  • Willingness to make changes to support a healthy lifestyle

Results may vary from person to person. For a complete information about the ReShape Dual Balloon, its usage and FDA's approval, please click here.
