What is the ReShape Balloon™?
The ReShape Balloon™ Procedure is a new, FDA approved, non-surgical approach to weight loss that is proven to help people achieve and maintain significant weight loss. The ReShape Balloon™ Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower BMI (between 30–40). In a recent study, patients lost more than twice as much weight with the ReShape Balloon™ than with diet and exercise alone. Most ReShape Balloon™ patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.
With the ReShape Balloon™, 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. The balloons remain in the stomach for six months, helping you lose weight and encourage healthy eating habits by taking up room in your stomach. 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.
The balloons are a weight loss jump-start, and they are only part of the procedure. 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.

“Fairly inexpensive, considering that it involves a medical specialist and a full year of follow-up, I like that it is non-invasive. Reshape kick starts you into thinking more about what you’re eating and how that affects your body. The year of follow-up with the health coach was extremely valuable. Great experience!”

Important ReShape Balloon System Safety Information
Indications: The ReShape Balloon™ System is indicated for weight reduction when used in conjunction with diet and exercise, in obese patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 – 40 kg/m2 and one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions. It is indicated for use in adult patients who have failed weight reduction with diet and exercise alone.
Contraindications: The ReShape Balloon System is not recommended for patients with conditions that may increase the risk of poor results (e.g., prior gastrointestinal surgery with sequelae, prior open or laparoscopic bariatric surgery, inflammatory diseases of the GI tract, potential upper GI bleeding), who are unwilling to participate in an established medically-supervised diet and behavior modification program, who have alcohol or drug addictions, who receive daily prescribed treatment with aspirin, anti-inflammatory agents, anticoagulants or other gastric irritants, or who currently are or may be pregnant or breast-feeding.
Warnings: The maximum placement period for the ReShape Balloon is 6 months. The risk of intragastric balloon deflation and intestinal obstruction (and therefore possible complications related to intestinal obstruction) is significantly higher when balloons are left in place longer than 6 months. The presence of blue-green urine or sudden loss of satiety, increased hunger and/or weight gain may be a sign of balloon deflation. Intestinal obstructions have been reported due to deflated balloons passing into the intestines and have required surgical removal. Death due to intestinal obstruction is possible. Patients experiencing symptoms of an intestinal obstruction (e.g., acute onset of abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting) should seek immediate care. Failure of patients to take prescribed daily proton-pump inhibitor medication increases the risk of gastric ulceration or perforation.
Adverse Events: Placement of the ReShape Balloon requires an endoscopic procedure with sedation. Potential risks associated with an endoscopic procedure and sedation include adverse reaction to sedation (headache, muscle pain, nausea), anaphylaxis, cardiac arrest, death, hypoxia, myocardial infarction, gastric and esophageal perforation, infection, pneumonia, and respiratory distress. Potential risks associated with the ReShape Balloon System include death, acute pancreatitis, ulceration, perforation, significant gastric bleeding, gastric outlet obstruction, aspiration pneumonia, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, belching, heartburn, dehydration, and sore throat. These complications may be severe enough to require early removal of the ReShape Balloon. Although the ReShape Balloon design provides an anti-migration feature, there is the potential risk of device migration and intestinal obstruction. The risk of intestinal obstruction is increased if the device is not removed after 6 months. If intestinal migration occurs, surgical or endoscopic removal may be required. (04-24-18)
