“It was a total lifestyle change!”
ReShape made sense to Kellie: in addition to the balloons, she liked the idea of learning new habits. She also liked that the balloon insertion was quick and painless. She was able to go home that same day, and she went back to work just a few days later. “The balloons really helped because they made the initial weight loss happen quickly. Seeing that success and proving to myself that I could lose weight without a crash diet—that made a huge difference. It was the right step for me that led to my success.”
Since Kellie herself is a “people person,” it’s not surprising that her ReShape weight loss team and the one-on-one counseling played the biggest roles in her weight loss success. The coaches took a personal interest in her health and well-being, and at every stage of the program, they outlined her options and helped her set goals. “In the past, it was just me and when I would fail, I wouldn’t start back up again. But on ReShape, you really don’t have that option! I would see my counselors, and they helped me stay motivated.“
“If you’re on the fence about ReShape, you just need to know that you have nothing to lose except the weight!”
Kellie is so happy with her new body! She feels great in her clothes and shopping has become a pleasure. But for her, the biggest benefit was feeling healthy and getting her energy back. “My health has improved tremendously. And I just have so much more energy! I teach kindergarten so I like to be active and involved with those kids…my weight loss has helped so much, and my whole family is so proud of me.”
“Thank you, ReShape, for all that I’ve lost: 35 pounds and bad health. And all that I’ve gained: good health, the respect of my family, and I got my energy back!”

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.
