Patients around the country are effectively losing weight and transforming their lives with the ReShape Balloon, an FDA approved non-surgical treatment option. This physician-designed approach combines healthy lifestyle coaching with balloon therapy for effective and safe results.
At Premier Gastroenterology, Dr. Tariq Khan has extensive experience with this procedure. As a board-certified gastroenterologist, Dr. Khan can help you determine whether or not the ReShape balloon is right for you, and will provide the support you need to lose the weight – and keep it off.
The ReShape procedure is actually quite simple. Your doctor will begin by placing two connected balloons in your stomach via your esophagus, eliminating the need for surgery. The balloons are then filled with a sterile saline solution, and the endoscope used to insert the balloons is removed. After the first 6 months, the balloons are removed.

Part of what makes ReShape such an effective procedure is the combination of non-surgical medical treatment and ongoing weight loss coaching. Our Southaven weight loss doctor will help support you throughout the process, and help you live a healthier, happier life after the ReShape balloons are removed.
Once your doctor approves you for the ReShape procedure, they will begin the process by inserting ReShape's patented dual-balloon system via endoscope. Patients are lightly sedated for the process, and typically do not experience any severe discomfort. The balloons are then filled with a sterile saline solution, allowing them to safely occupy more space in the stomach.
The nutrition and fitness coaching you'll receive from your doctor helps accelerate the process, and helps give you the tools you need to make your weight loss permanent. At Premier Gastroenterology, we can help you both achieve and maintain a healthy weight through the ReShape procedure.
