The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.

The way we do this is through metabolic resistance training that is designed to increase lean muscle tissue (which is metabolically active). One of the biggest myths we hear is that women don’t want to ‘bulk up’ but the opposite will happen with this type of training. Muscle takes up less space than fat (per unit of weight) and so adding muscle will lead to a decrease in fat as metabolism is elevated. We also end each session with metabolic afterburner’s – exercises that are designed to keep metabolism elevated for 24-36 hours after each session.
Want to improve your self-esteem? Plastic surgery is a great way to reduce any excess skin and fat left behind after major weight loss. Its goal is to restore more perfect proportions. If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, you’ll be able to get rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better, in addition to getting rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes, and infections. If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs, then this program of procedures may be just right for you.
“When I started the programme I had spent years trying different types of diet and exercise regimes but deep down I knew I would not be able to succeed long term if I didn’t change the way I think about food. Now, I finally feel back in the driving seat when it comes to my attitude towards food. I no longer feel like a prisoner in that respect and feel totally in control which is an achievement I am absolutely delighted with! I have not binged on food for a long time and I now feel I am much more the real me. I am a lot happier and more confident almost all of the time. This is the way I used to feel when I was going through a good patch but there are no patches anymore. For the first time I really feel like I have a fit, healthy future ahead of me!” (Thomas Greaves, IT Consultant, London) more…
During the first phase, also called the Acute Weight Loss phase, you will eat primarily protein foods to get your body into ketosis. Calorie counts during this stage may be low. There are several media reports and reviews from patients stating that they were given daily goals in the 500-800 range. According to the company, those claims are not true:
Results were that I quickly shed some excess weight and body fat, reduced abdominal measurement (over the stomach); felt more energetic and more focused. Five month later, I am still feeling the benefits and, more slowly, the weight is still reducing. Monica was a great help, very responsive and flexible to my timetable. A great service, well worth the time and effort.
It seems so simple: Eat less, exercise more and lose weight. But for many severely overweight people, diets and exercise just do not work. Fortunately, we have the solution - bariatric surgery, which has a near 100% success rate in sustained weight loss. And for those who wish to try non surgical techniques at weight loss, we offer comprehensive programmes in both lifestyle and medical (tablet) treatments.
The free information sessions throughout the year offer education about obesity and its related health risks, detailed information about weight loss surgery options, an opportunity to meet our surgeons and members of the bariatric team and talk with an insurance specialist. Former patients are often on hand to describe their experiences. These sessions are mandatory for anyone considering weight loss surgery. Family members and friends are welcome to attend.
If you are considering this plan, reach out to your local Medi Weightloss provider and ask specific questions about cost and insurance before you invest. You might also want to ask to see a sample meal plan to see if it is something that you feel you can follow. In addition, you can speak with your healthcare provider to get recommendations and suggestions. The more questions you ask, the more likely you will be to find a program that fits your needs.
