ReShape Dual Balloon

The ReShape Procedure is not a cure for obesity. It helps with weight loss. During the procedure you will have the chance to develop new lifestyle skills. Working hard on these new habits will give you the best chance of losing weight.

What is the ReShape Dual Weight Loss Balloon?

The ReShape Dual Balloon is inserted in the stomach during a short outpatient procedure, where it remains for six months, serving as built-in portion control so people may feel full and less hungry. It does not change or alter the natural anatomy of the stomach in any way. During this time and for the six months after removal, patients receive frequent in-office diet and exercise coaching sessions and access to the ReShape Patient Portal, an online support resource that provides tools and information to help patients track weight loss, diet, and exercise, and an on-line community where they can interact with each other.

What is the ReShape Dual Weight Loss Balloon?

The device used in the ReShape Procedure is a dual balloon. The dual balloon is actually two separate silicone balloons with a silicone tube in the middle. The balloons are filled with about two cups of salt water (saline) and a blue dye that shows up in your urine if a balloon breaks. The filled balloons are sealed with mineral oil. They take up space in your stomach for 6 months to help you lose weight.

Why doctors use the ReShape Procedure?

For many people diet and exercise alone may not be enough to hit weight loss targets. Bariatric surgery can be used for those who qualify, but many fear the surgical risks. Others want to avoid permanent changes to their body. The ReShape Procedure may be a nonsurgical choice for you if you are an adult with a body mass index (BMI) from 30-40 and have failed to lose weight with diet and exercise alone. You must also have one or more conditions related to your obesity (co-morbid conditions).

Benefits of having the ReShape Procedure

The ReShape dual balloon was shown to help patients lose weight. Patients who received the dual balloon lost more weight than patients who just received diet and exercise counseling alone. On average, the dual balloon patients lost twice as much weight as the patients who only received diet and exercise counseling. Study patients who received the dual balloon lost an average of 14.3 lbs. after the balloon was taken out at 6 months while study patients who did not receive the dual balloon lost an average of 7.1 lbs. (7.2 lbs. less than the dual balloon patients).


On average, 6 months after the study patients had their dual balloon removed, patients kept off 9.9 of the 14.3 lbs they lost with the balloon in place


At 340 pounds I was ready to give up on everything. Obesity was killing me. Once I started losing weight I felt much better. Now, I weigh 177 pounds and feel that I came back to life. I can do a lot of things I could not do before surgery. I feel like a new person and I love my new life!

I wish I had had this surgery a long time ago and I am extremely happy that I had it done. I am very grateful to Dr. Singh and his team.

NOW I’m running 5K runs, cheering my son at his Triathlon Ironman competitions, running 6 to 7 miles every morning doing a spin cycle class or step aerobics class every afternoon.

There are a couple of ways to begin your weight loss journey. You can attend a bariatric seminar – either in-person or online – and if you are not yet ready for a seminar, you can proceed without registering for either.

Our In-Person Bariatric Seminars are held several times a month in various locations. At the Seminar, you will listen to one of our surgeons as they describe morbid obesity and the surgical options used to treat this disease. There will be time at the end for questions and answers. The Seminar is designed to provide you with all the information needed to make an informed decision about weight loss surgery, and usually lasts between one to two hours. You are encouraged to bring a support person with you to this Seminar.

Education is a large part of a successful bariatric procedure. With so many options to consider, a thorough understanding of the bariatric procedure is critical to finding an opportunity that’s best for you.

At DHR Health Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we’re dedicated to helping you make the right decisions for your health. With our in-person weight loss seminars, you can explore exactly what our facility has to offer. Ask questions, get answers, and meet our team!
