Reshape Duo is the first and only non-surgical dual balloon treatment for weight loss.


While the patient is under deep conscious sedation, an endoscope is inserted through the mouth into the stomach.


The uninflated balloons are advanced over a guidewire and are precisely placed in the stomach.


Each balloon is inflated independently with saline.


The device is release and remains in the stomach for six months, serving as built-in portion control. The device occupies space to reduce the capacity for food.


During removal, the dual balloon is stabilized with an endoscope, fitted with a proprietary suction cap and each balloon is completely drained in a controlled manner.


A snare securely lassos the deflated dual balloon around the flower tip and the device is removed through the mouth.
