Shape*ology is a multidisciplinary approach to weight loss for people who want to lose weight and achieve a healthier lifestyle. Our FDA approved, non-surgical gastric balloons and comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle coaching work together to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
ReShape® and ORBERA® procedures involve the endoscopic (by mouth) placement of stomach balloons with no incisions or alteration to the digestive anatomy. Combined with comprehensive fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle coaching, these procedures provide a weightloss kick-start of 40+ pounds on average by the time the balloons are removed at the six-month mark.
AspireAssist® is a new, FDA-approved nonsurgical placement of a reversible gastronomy tube in the stomach. A recent clinical trial showed a mean loss of 26.7% of excess body weight in 52 weeks.
OBALON™ is the first swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system which helps facilitate weight loss by taking upspace in the stomach so you eat less.
Apollo OverStitch™ is the non-surgical endoscopic placement of a gastronomy tube.
Shape*ology brings options for those who don’t want to make permanent alterations to their bodies – such as bariatric surgery – when diet and exercise alone have failed.
While these procedures are not yet covered by insurance, packages and financing options are available.
