Carmelia Lost 35 Pounds With Reshape™
“When I started ReShape, it just worked immediately.”
When she was in her 20s, Carmelia could eat whatever she wanted and skip the gym for months at a time. As she got older, this lifestyle began having a negative impact on her waistline, her health, and her self-esteem.
“I ate a lot of fast food. I didn’t work out. And it showed. The weight kept coming on.”
Desperate to free herself of the 35 pounds she’d gained over the years, she tried fad diets, over-the-counter pills, and weight loss shakes, but nothing helped.
For Carmelia, the dual balloons offered a mental edge that no other weight loss program had by making her take her efforts seriously, which made her more willing to do the work and make the lifestyle changes.
Carmelia got the real jumpstart she needed to start eating right. “The balloons actually helped me control my eating, and over time, I started eating less. The counseling helped me to make better food choices. That combination together was what worked and clicked for me.”
“Once I started to see the effects and changes that were taking place in my body, I felt like a new person. I could wear clothes I hadn’t worn in years. People were complimenting me. My life was changing in a very good way.”
And after two years, Carmelia has kept the weight off and is still loving her healthy new lifestyle—and because the program worked so effectively for her, she recommends ReShape to family, friends, and anyone who is serious about losing weight and gaining back their health.
“With ReShape, I’ve gained so much! A new lifestyle. A new body. A new wardrobe. New friends. A whole new outlook on life. Thank you, ReShape!”

Important ReShape™ Integrated Dual Balloon System Safety Information
Indications: The ReShape Integrated Dual 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 Integrated Dual 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 Integrated Dual 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. 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 Integrated Dual 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), infection, pneumonia, and respiratory distress. Potential risks associated with the ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon include ulceration, perforation, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, belching, heartburn, dehydration, and sore throat. These complications may be severe enough to require early removal of the ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon. Although the ReShape Dual 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.
