Michelle’s ReShape Success Story
“Before ReShape, I was tired all the time and I was always out of breath.”
Everyone has a different reason for wanting to lose weight, but for Michelle, it came down to: “I didn’t want to feel that I couldn’t do everyday tasks, and I didn’t want to feel tired in the day for no reason.” Not only did Michelle feel like her health was suffering, she felt self-conscious about her weight in social situations and wanted to upgrade her wardrobe from the shapeless, plus-size shirts she hid herself in.
Michelle had dieted in the past…so when ReShape came around, she was ready.
ReShape started a new chapter in Michelle’s life.“The transformation you’ll make and the support that goes behind it…it’s amazing!”
After the balloons were inserted, Michelle took advantage of all the tools to help her learn a healthy new lifestyle. What surprised her most was how much she was enjoying herself and discovering new things. With a varied menu plan and one-on-one support from dietitians, Michelle never got bored with what she ate.
The balloons, personalized support, and the new sense of accountability all kept Michelle on track and excited about her progress in the program. “You just feel better about yourself, so you want to eat right and keep losing weight.”
Michelle gained healthy habits, confidence, and a new wardrobe!
“The people that helped me through the process were great. They went over my diet plan with me. My nutritionist was always giving me extra ideas as to what I can eat, and she would switch it up a little bit for me. And the coaches were always there, helping me with new ideas for exercise if I got tired of doing something that I was getting in a routine of.”
“Thank you, ReShape: I’ve lost 32 pounds, a couple of dress sizes, and baggy clothes.”
“ReShape worked wonders for me! It changed my life. It made me a more active person, made me feel better about myself, and made me happier! It was a good experience for me!”

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.
