ReShape™. The Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure


The ReShape Procedure is a new, FDA approved, non-surgical approach to weight loss that is proven to help people achieve and maintain significant weight loss. The ReShape Procedure was specifically designed for patients with a lower BMI (between 30–40).


Most ReShape patients keep the weight off or continue to lose, even after the balloons are removed.*

Bariatric surgery can help you lose as much as 85 percent or more of your excess weight, which is a major reason it often has a huge impact on your overall health.
