      The ReShape™ Integrated Dual Balloon System is a first-of-its-kind non-surgical weight loss procedure for people with mild to moderate obesity.

What is Unique About the ReShape design?
ReShape Gastric Balloon in Nashville, TN

Only ReShape dual intragastric balloon technology uses two connected saline (salt water) filled balloons. The dual weight loss balloons were designed to hold a higher volume of saline, and therefore take up more room in the stomach than a single balloon. Additionally, the dual gastric balloons were designed to sit in the stomach in a way that mirrors the natural curvature of the stomach to enhance comfort when in place.

Finally, the connected, dual weight loss balloons were designed to enhance safety. In the unlikely event of a balloon deflation, the second gastric balloon maintains the position of the device in the stomach. Thus preventing it from migrating into the intestines where it may require surgical removal.
