Pioneer of the Revolutionary ReShape Procedure

CarmeliaCarmeliaLost 35 pounds*ReShape gave Carmelia the tools and support she needed to lose weight and keep it off. Carmelia is so satisfied, she gives it a “100% recommendation.”


The ReShape Procedure is a new, 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 want surgery.

Dual Balloon

The innovative design uses two connected balloons to take up room in your stomach. When the balloons are in place, you’ll feel less hungry, so it’s easier to eat the healthy foods you enjoy in reasonable portions.

Comprehensive Coaching

One year of comprehensive coaching

With guidance from experts to keep you motivated and accountable, and a full set of online tools and resources, you have one year of support to create permanent lifestyle changes.

Proven weight loss without surgery

In a recent study, patients lost more than two times more weight with ReShape than with diet and exercise alone. And most patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.

Dual-Balloon Technology

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 increased safety.

One Year of Comprehensive Coaching and Support

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.
