Ready To Take Control? We Can Help
How can the IWMP work for you? The Kips Bay Integrative Weight Management Program is a one-year program that is designed to help you develop sustainable, long-term healthy habits. We offer two different options for weight loss, one that involves non-surgical endoscopic intervention along with our integrated lifestyle plan, and the other comprised entirely of the lifestyle approach. If you are a candidate for endoscopic intervention to jump start your weight loss journey, you will then undergo a simple non-surgical endoscopic balloon or sleeve procedure. The balloon’s volume and shape is meant to take up space in the stomach, which encourages portion control. You feel less hungry and are satiated by eating less. The balloon will remain in place for six months.
Simultaneously, with the gastric balloon or sleeve in place, your physician will supervise your progress and you will have access to online nutrition and fitness counseling as well as visits with a healthy lifestyle coach. Once the balloon is removed through a quick non-surgical procedure, the next six months are an opportunity to capitalize on the momentum by continuing your coaching. When your year-long program is over, you’ve established healthy choices that help you continue to lose weight and maintain your results.
