ReShape. TM A Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure.
The ReShape Procedure is an FDA approved, non-surgical approach to weight loss that is
proven to help people achieve and maintain significant weight loss. It is completely different
from any diet, program, or procedure you may have tried or considered before. The
ReShape Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower BMI (between
30–40). ReShape may be a good weight loss option for people who do not qualify or do not
With ReShape, two connected balloons filled with saline (salt water) are placed temporarily
inside your stomach in an outpatient medical setting. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes
while you are comfortably sedated under light anesthesia. An endoscope is used to insert
the balloons into the stomach, and saline is used to inflate the balloons when they are
properly positioned. Once the balloons are inflated, the endoscope is removed and the
insertion procedure is complete. The balloons remain in the stomach for 6 months.
When filled with saline, the balloons help you lose weight and encourage healthy eating
habits by taking up room in your stomach, so there is less space for food. You can still eat
the healthy foods you enjoy, but the balloons act as built-in portion control, helping you feel
full and less hungry.
After six months, the balloons are deflated and removed during a similar endoscopic
Only the ReShape Procedure places two connected, medical-grade and saline-filled
balloons inside your stomach for six months. The ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon is
designed to take up room in your stomach, which creates a feeling of fullness and may help
you feel satisfied with less food. The dual balloon is designed to conform to the curvature of
the stomach for comfort, and also includes an anti-migration feature, so if one balloon
deflates, the second balloon prevents the device from passing into the intestines for
The balloon placement is completed endoscopically, without surgery, in an outpatient
setting. There are no incisions, scars, or permanent changes to your digestive system. The
procedure is completely reversible, and patients are often able to return to work and normal
activities in just a few days.
The balloons are a weight loss jump-start. Many patients experience rapid weight loss
initially, providing the motivation required to keep going and make the changes stick. You
also receive a full year of personalized coaching to support your success and help you make
the changes that will encourage a lifetime of healthy living.

ReShape combines the portion-controlling benefits of the balloons with comprehensive
coaching to change your eating habits, enhance your physical fitness, and help you adopt a
healthy lifestyle that supports long-term success. While the balloons are inside your
stomach, you will meet (monthly) with coaches and receive personalized nutrition, fitness,
and behavior guidance to help maximize your success. After the balloons are removed, you
will continue to meet with your coaching team to make sure that you maintain your healthy
lifestyle to reach your goals. With ongoing coaching support, most patients maintain their
weight loss or continue to lose weight.
Patients also have access to the ReShape Patient Portal, a comprehensive tool that has
everything you need to track your success. The portal includes: weight logging, food
logging, activity tracking, goal setting, articles and recipes, important reminders, and the
ability to easily share data with your doctor.
